Neither Martin nor I are totally head over tea kettle for Christmas itself, but have enjoyed some of the rituals of this year (decorating the tree, a neighbourhood evening of christmas light displays, and particularly his daughters delight at the approaching day). That all said, I am happy that we'll be spending it together here, for our first Christmas in our little house. A few days later we'll head to island for a visit with my family, which will be nice. And as an added bonus, our island visit will include some time with my oh-so-dear friend Kate who's trucked her partner and daughter out for the holidays.
And with all these dearly loved ones, our cozy livingroom and my beloved wonderkitty near, I can only imagine that tomorrow will be a slice of bliss.
And so now, the computer goes off for a few days as Theresa just called from Edmonton to remind me to pour a bit of Christmas cheer, and so with a wee nip of cognac in hand I wish you all a series of days that fill you with love.
