I can't quite play holiday tunes for long at work before I find them cloying and saccharine. Maybe I'm listening to the wrong type? But I am loving seeing holiday decor around. I just got all happy because I didn't notice before that the little glass Xmas tree I got for my desk at work had a switch on it. I had to borrow some batteries but now it's cycling between blue, purple, red, green and aqua below the glass. I'd take a picture but I don't think it would translate very well. I want to make holiday cookies to give out, though this weekend will be too hot to bake. However next weekend's forecast looks like it has potential.

The hippy-dippy gal in our group that works down the hall is very much up for doing Veganuary with me. Sweeet. It'll be good to have someone that if I slack on packing one day that we could get delivery from the local places that are too much of a pain in the butt to park at or if the weather doesn't suck (and my back is being cooperative) we can walk over to the Food, Nutrition and Health dining hall when it re-opens when the students return in late January.

I'm actually looking very forward to giving it a go for the entire month since I'll have no choice but to think for an entire month about what I'm eating. I've already started slacking again which I'm not pleased with myself about. Since I need to eat the non-vegan food I have in my fridge and freezer to make room, then I should work on making a game plan this weekend on how to slowly do that. I don't have a lot of meat-based items but there are enough and I'd rather not have them around for temptation. I know off the top of my head that in the freezer there is shrimp, gluten free battered halibut, some chicken thighs and a few entrees that have cheese in them. That and the Asian bread that has dairy. I just cleaned out the fridge this morning to take a bag of trash out so what's left in there that's not vegan is some cheese, eggs, half and half, jello, and some deli ham.

I found a Pandora station one year that was Christmas instrumental and "lounge" - it was nice - festive but not 92 repetitions of 'baby it's cold outside'

Also around this time of year I break out the Loreena Mckennitt albums - especially "The Book of Secrets"

The Loreena McKennitt is a excellent idea, thanks!
