The Tree, A Gift For Linda and Friday's Appointment

DeBary, FL.

52deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Sunny to partly cloudy. High 78F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph.

Jim and Linda set up the new tree the other day and I think it looks pretty good. ;-)  Since this photo was taken, they have also partially decorated it, but haven't finished yet, so Jim didn't take any more photos of it.
They also strung a string of lights across the windows in the Florida room, but unless Jim takes a photo of them at night, I don't think you'd be able to see them in a daytime photo.

Oh, and Saturday, a delivery man brought a package!!! Linda didn't know it, but Jim had ordered a "Kindle Paper White" for her!!
You see, Jim had been thinking about getting her a Kindle for a long time but had put it off for one reason or another. But now, he reasoned that with this "chemo" stuff coming up, she could use it while she was getting the treatments and it would also be handy for her while we're here at the house and even while traveling. He chose the "Paper White" because Linda's eyes are not real good and the reviews said that it was the easiest one to see under most light conditions.

It took a little while but both Linda and Jim have figured out the basic use of it and have already downloaded about 30 free books from Amazon. ;-)

Laura stopped by for awhile yesterday afternoon. No special reason, just stopped to chat for awhile. I also found out that she's also going to go along to the Chemo place for Linda's "chemo patient education" appointment Friday afternoon. As I understand it, at this appointment, Linda will learn what's all involved with getting the treatments. She will be shown the facilities and a nurse who administers the treatments will walk her through the whole process and answer any questions she has.

Then, on the 12th, Linda will have her first treatment. :-(

OH!!!! I almost forgot!!!! Sunday, Jim and Linda went Christmas shopping and bought a whole bunch of presents. They said that the stores really weren't too crowded and in fact, were kind of surprised how few shoppers were out and about.

Don't think there's anything special planned for the next few days. Linda has been working on a few embroidery projects to use for presents and Jim has been doing a few things around the house, so I suppose they'll be doing more of that.

Did you know that the first Kindle was introduced on November 19, 2007, for $399?
