I just watched “Elf” finally. Only 13 years late. It was sweet. But had some homemade chili, a fire in the fireplace, my gal by my side, which made it totally sweet. Yup, holidays are around us. Yesterday the neighbor invited us over for mulled cider — with a spike of caramel vodka. I sent off holiday cards (which I drew, because I’m all artsy like that). And at the local weekend market in town, we were recruited to decorate for the annual yule log hunt celebration up in the park.
Oh, and the Anna Galactic are packaged and ready to ship. Should take two days to get them all out (usually it would take longer, in order to not have the post office hate me, but the local postal person has been super sweet and we’ve arranged it all. Ah, small towns).
Oh, and we’re learning Spanish. Today we read Thomas the Tank Engine in “Feliz Cumpleanos.” Despite the optimistic title, it is a rather sad story, where you really fear for the neglect and hurt heart that Thomas is experiencing, but, thank goodness, it all works out in the end! Phew! Now we just need more kind Spanish books.
