Tea today is with the Earl, I always need a bit of a jolt, especially this time of year when it is colder. I got a moment to decorate, way later than I had hoped, but I did get a few trees and decorations up for the holidays. This is half of the mantle which is dedicated to snowmen and Santa this year.
Speaking of the holidays, the day was lovely and crisp, the usual suspects behaved both naughty and nice, and Kevin and Gwen and I are just glad that we don’t have to do that again for another year! We enjoy our time together immensely, but when you group several families together there is always trouble, and this year was true to form.
My friend Phred said that he was going to call me to see how things had gone, but wasn’t sure if he should call our home, or the County Lock-up, just in case I had murdered someone. Not this year, thankfully!
I did get a lovely belated gift in the mail yesterday, which has wiped out most of the holiday un-cheer, for this year!
The story that I wrote about Butch our cat is out in the current issue of Threads magazine. It was just fun to read the story again, with a bit of editing, but not much, which means I must have written it ok! If you get a chance to find it in your local Borders, see the above link for the front of the magazine, I promise that you will get a chuckle.
I will say Happy New Year to you all now, and have a little visit with you on Kimmies sidebar!
