It’s December 23. I cannot believe how quickly we’ve gotten here. I wish we had a few more days to linger in this “it’s nearly Christmas” glow, where everyone is home (or on their way home) with friends and family in joyful anticipation and excitement (unlike the nasty holiday crowds in the bigger stores today).
We may not have accomplished everything I’d hoped in time, but we did do quite a lot. Holiday stories were read. Gingerbread houses were made (and eaten).
My Christmas quilt was finally finished.
Friends were received and parties were attended.
Lots of food was prepared (and eaten!)
One more glorious day of “before-ness” is left us. One more day before the explosion of gifts and sugar-loaded children. One more day.
I’m going to curl up with my cutie and watch It’s A Wonderful Life with some mulled wine.
It’s nearly time.
