Ahhhhh, hello again. At about 5:50pm I snuck over to the computer at work and spent a mad 5 minutes reading your blogs.
I was almost unable to stand up again what with my feet instantaneously swelling up to twice the size of my boots.
But I made it home and am ensconced in front of my own computer and am hoping to finish this post before the Thai food arrives.
Then I am hoping to stay awake long enough to eat said food. And take a bath. And get these boots off.
So this is Christmas?
Our tree is up and halfway decorated. The Tasmanian devils remove anything under 18". Half measures avail us everything.
To avoid breakage (much) there are paper ornaments made by GG, garland crocheted by little ole uncrafty me, postcards, some family ornaments from Germany and Danish stars and origami and lights, lights and more lights.
Of course they unwrap the lights on the lower branches. They also try to unwrap any present that makes its way under the tree.
I call them the little strippers.
We are all drawn to the tree. We sip tea, read books, watch football and occasionally nap by its flame.
I'm back, dinner done, bath taken, dressed in sweats and moccasins. Ahhhhhhh.
The kettle is boiling, the couch is empty, I'm off.
Hope you can all put your feet up and enjoy a quiet moment at home.
