Work continues to run on and on like a never ending reality show. In the midst of the madness, friends drop by to visit, bearing cookies and babies. Clients come by with vases to be filled and presents for all. Drivers get lost, coffees get drunk and we get sillier and sillier.
Two more wakes then we can sleep.
I mean we can celebrate Christmas and then we can sleep.
Fresh from the bath and soon to bed. Listening to the songs of Mozart sung by Barbara Bonney. Quietly celebrating the news that GG made the Deans List. Now that's a Christmas present.
We'll spend the night of the 24th with Tini and Nirmal ( my computer is underlining both these names) eating seafood risotto and watching the dogs careen about. Al la family tradition Tini will have candles on her tree. Both beautiful and terrifying when lit.
I didn't know so many of you this time last year and now here I sit filled with details of your upcoming holidays. Who is coming, what you will eat, how your houses are decorated for Christmas and whether or not you're dreaming of a white Christmas.
Me? I'm always dreaming.
