I am not a big resolution maker, but I have a couple of irons in the fire for the new year and I’m pretty excited about them. I hope all of you have (or had – if you get around to reading this on the other side of things) a joyous and blessed 2011.
Maybe it’s day ten. You really lose track of days when everybody has time off.
Today, I’ll be going to the store with my trusty sidekick, Max. It snowed a little this morning and I’m going to mosy on down and get anything else we need so I wont be ringing in the new year with marshmallows and soup. Off we go.
It’s been a week since Christmas Vacation started. Where did the time go? Today is Little A (and Melette)’s birthday Happy Birthday!! Of course this means I have to make her favorite cake, which is her auntie’s chocolate cake (it’s really moist like a lava cake with the fudge on top instead of in the middle. Yum! ). Whale watching is this week. We’ll have to see how the weather works out for that.
Christmas is a really good day for comfortable shoes. Go to the store if you need to, watch people open presents. Warm stuff up. Serve it. I was sort of sad to be calling the folks I spent Christmas with last year, but that’s just added incentive to make it home in the coming year. Most of my tree has withstood the phenomenon that is Max and I really enjoyed service yesterday evening. I didn’t enjoy all of the stores closing on me before I got to make my soda run, but that’s ok. It’s Christmas.
