Christmas Day

For most of you it's Christmas Day. But we hosted our family Christmas here yesterday, so today is our eat-leftovers-make-turkey-soup-and-watch-movies day.

I love that day.

I got some nice things for Christmas yesterday ... perhaps you'd like to guess? I'll give you hints for 3 gifts, ok?

Gift #1

Gift #2

Gift #3

It was a lovely ending to a week that involved a plumber ... yet again ... in our house. Nothing like the sweet smell of a backed-up drain to put you in the Christmas mood. You'll be pleased to know that I didn't even panic. I sniffed the air a bit, looked at the drain downstairs, texted "tree roots" to Spike, and dialed the plumber's number myself ... FROM MEMORY. Frankly, I thought I handled the fact that I couldn't shower, run a dishwasher or do laundry for two days rather well.

Merry Christmas to you, and I really mean that. Whether I know you or not, whether you are local or in Australia (somebody is lurking here from Australia lately!) ... have a lovely, wonderful day today, OK?
