It’s been such a happy Christmas season, starting with the NY trip and giving ourselves freedom from gift-giving pressure, to our Chicken Carolers (of whom, darn it, I didn’t think to take a picture) and our Zombie Yulesters, to four mellow days at home together, eating, drinking, and making merry; it’s all been wonderful. And to top it off, we’re now getting a rare dusting of snow–just enough to look pretty falling down, not enough to pile up and cause difficulty. Nice touch, Nature!
See? Actual snow! They’re even running a news crawler under Holiday Celebration on Ice, keeping us abreast of this ‘developing weather situation’. “StormTeam 8, we have a situation. Mobilize! Mobilize! Mobilize!” Heh. The local weather people are so cute when they panic.
I’m way excited. I’m staying out here until I’ve collected enough for a snowball.
Ken’s less impressed. “Yeah, pretty, whatever. You’ll come in when you’re ready for cocoa.”

That’s our porch cat, Spike. He’s actually the neighbors’ cat, but we’ve got partial custody under the “possession is 9/10s of the law” rule.
Wherever you are and however you celebrate the season (and even if you don’t), I wish you peace and joy and love!
