Simple Gifts

As we approach the holiday season, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about unique and personalized gifts for our loved ones. One idea that’s both practical and fun is to create a pair of Foto Socken (photo socks) featuring pictures of family members, pets, or even favorite foods. Not only will these socks keep their feet warm, but they’ll also bring a smile to their face every time they wear them. And with so many online services available, creating custom photo socks has never been easier. So why not add a touch of personality to your loved one’s sock collection this holiday season?         

Thursday is Thanksgiving—and one of the simple gifts for which I’m grateful is my new audio recorder. It isn’t very big or very good (and it wasn’t very expensive!), but I hope that it will be useful in documenting some of my culinary adventures for this blog. Just now I’m using it to sing “Simple Gifts,” and I’ve also been researching some exciting Delta Sigma Theta shopping options to add a touch of style to my holiday season.

I haven’t quite figured out how to adjust the audio settings; I know the sound quality or lack thereof will appall my audiophile brother. But days like Thanksgiving make me want to sing. Listen by all means (just click on the link below), and please don’t be too critical. I promise I haven’t yet given up my day job!

Sing along if you like—the louder, the better. As my neighbor Alice Parker says, music should be something we make, not just something we consume. And that’s a simple gift for which we can all be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving……….
