All I want for Christmas is . . . a pool skimmer!

I've always considered myself "low maintenance" and my Christmas wish list just proves it.

1. A pool skimmer . . . . for the horse trough. The trough sits between a couple of pecan trees so the water is always nice and cool and the horses have a shady place to get refreshed. The only problem is that pecan tree leaves are of the small-ish size and there are a gazillion on each tree. Every day I "rake" the leaves floating in the trough. So I'm thinking a pool skimmer would be cool not to mention very useful. And I'm sure the horses would appreciate not having to chew their water.

2. "The Devil Wears Prada" on DVD. I know it's a chick flick but it's hilarious and I can totally relate to the dichotomy of the main character's upbringing and eventual career. And it makes my own shoe addiction seem pretty insignificant.

3. A Cornelius Series 200 Flake Ice Machine. Yeah, so it costs about $2,500 but we shouldn't put a price on happiness, right? I have to have my Diet Dr. P with extra ice every morning just like some folks have to have their Starbuck's coffee (or any caffeine, for that matter). I've already included an ice machine in the preliminary new house plans. Just in case Santa doesn't come through for me.

What are YOU wishing for this year?

I think the pool skimmer is a perfectly brilliant idea. And thank you for the reminder that I have to put "Devil Wears Prada" on my Netflix list.

I don't know what I want for Christmas (since $100k to build a master suite is out of the question). And it's funny because apparently both of the other members of the family already have lists.

Horses not having to "Chew their water." That is funny.
