In the long established tradition that I started just last year, I bring you the Christmas wish list for this year:
1. Stand up mixer - yes, this is still on my list (it's actually the only present I didn't get last year). Just think of all the things I could mix up with this sucker. Cookies! Bread! Pie! Cakes! Maybe a stand up mixer will magnify all that is domestic in my little house-wife heart. Or, you know, not. Santatometer says: I can't afford the extra calories from all that food I might whip up anyhow.
2. A piano - this is my "WISH BIG" gift this year. I have actually wanted a piano for a really long time, but we can't afford one. And, oh yeah, I don't know how to play. I was checking into piano lessons early in '09 but suddenly our life was turned upside down and it just never came to pass. Santatometer says: Not even Santa believes this gift will happen.
3. A Kindle from Amazon.com. Okay, so this year I'm wishing way out of the realm of possibilty, but a girl can dream. This fancy little device holds books, books, magazines, and more books plus you can download more books. It's a library in your hand. Santatometer says: bahahahahahaha!
4. Oil paints, brushes, and some canvas to play with. I'm so inspired by the colors and textures around me right now. I have never tried painting, who knows if I'm any good at it - but I think it would be fun to give it a try. Santatometer says: Slighty cloudy with a chance of paint in my stocking.
So, what's on your wish list?
