68. Xmas shopping became easy when my dad died
because he was the last close relative I had. My friends are my age and more interested in getting rid of stuff than accumulating it.

The only thing I'm sending out is a hat I made last year out of some experimental fiber I spun up, more to show the recipient what I've been doing lately than to gift her with something particularly elegant, although it is pretty neat.

The irony is that I can finally afford to lavish what I want to on people I love instead of finding things to make do because I had so little money to spend. So I lavish it on Feeding America and other charities.
