    Also, not everyone who is single and alone is lonely. And many of these individuals would appreciate it if other people would stop bothering them with their sympathy and good intentions.

    If there is one thing that really irks Lilly and me around the holiday season is when relatives send photos of their children to us. One of these days, we're going to send photos of our feline 'children' to them.
    Christmas is no big deal for me. We will have a meal and perhaps some small presents. The rest of family friends will get Christmas cards or an e-mail. That's it.

    Even though we no longer exchange gifts, I decided to put our little white Christmas tree on display this year. It is located on our enclosed front porch which is not accessible to our kitties during cold weather cause they might mess with it.

    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    That's an adorable display. I can't figure out what is on the top of your Christmas tree though.

    I went on eBay and searched for something she would like. I didn't find anything in white except for a bag in the UK which would take too long. I ordered a soft oiled leather handbag crossbody tote/satchel, in black, for her Christmas present. I also ordered two button down sweaters (one white and one black). She has one in red and mentioned she wished she had one in white or black. It's not exactly the same. I hope she likes it/them. They are v-necks. She hates high neck collars. I have Christmas wrapping paper and scotch tape.

    We live in Miami where it's too hot to wear a sweater but my mom often says she is cold, especially now that it's almost winter. Elderly people often feel cold.


    All three items estimated delivery date is the 18th.
    This company makes lovely purses although I’m not sure if they carry white. They also have an Etsy store.

    Now I am worried about my mom's main Christmas presents (the purses). Neither were shipped via USPS. One has no shipping information and the other was sent via DHL.

    edit: I googled DHL and put the tracking number in and they have no information, no record, of it.
    I sent a message to the seller, via the eBay messaging system, asking about my mom's present.

    another edit/add-on: I put the tracking number in USPS and they have this: "Status

    USPS Currently Awaiting PackageA status update is not yet available for your package. It will be available when the shipper provides an update or the package is delivered to USPS. Check back soon."

    third edit/add-on: I sent a message just now to the eBay seller of the white purse asking for shipping information. Most sellers provide this on eBay.
