--Christmas Eve with 'kids' and sister was heartwarming. Delightful, thoughtful gifts, much laughter, the soul deep pleasure of a fire-warmed livingroom filled with those I love most. All three scarves I'd knitted were well-received (photos to follow).
--Christmas Day was perfection. We slept late, had coffee in bed, had a decadent breakfast by the fire, opened presents (I'm now the proud owner of three new Moosewood cookbooks, and Linda's new Lady Gaga CD made her laugh out loud), and spent most of the day warm and cozy, watching the film Oceans, poring through cookbooks, watching Elf explore, and being gloriously lazy.
--Snow! About 16" of it fell and blew Sunday night....more than we had in total last Winter. Yeti is not happy; our dog is a sissy. I completed my very first felt project--needle felted jingle balls. I'm hooked.So far it's been a delicious break; while not as much sleep as I might want, I'm feeling just a little bit more restored, and plan to savor every bit of the time I have left before the hounds of hell chase me back to work Monday! I wish for all who read this blog the same peace and pleasure to warm your heart and soul.
