Merry Post Christmas everyone.  Hope you all had wonderful days filled with love and laughter and great joy.  I brought Mom home for a Christmas Eve celebration.  She requested and I complied with a feast of broast chicken (for her and the dogs and cats), potato salad, shrimp and egg nog.  They were all quite full and happy.  I was very pleased with my favorite potato salad sandwich (like egg salad only better) and a bit of Christmas Ale.  She opened her gifts, the dogs showered her with love, snuggles and lots of kisses and we had a leisurely drive back looking at all the lovely Christmas lights.  The only downside was that she was coming down with a terrible cold that included a hacking cough.

For Christmas and the day after, I did my favorite thing:  holed up in the house with good books, lots of knitting and my fur babies.  There was snuggling and napping and long walks through the 'hood (in my pjs, of course).  In fact, if I didn't have to go to work today and tomorrow, I'd probably just stay in and continue the retreat.  

I think my preference for solitude and quiet comes from being an only child.  People who require lots of noise, company and action puzzle me, in much the same way my preference for solitude confounds them.

For those who bet -- I did not finish any of the last minute Christmas gifts.  I warned you.  But looking at the bright side, I have a head start on Christmas 2009!

There are no pictures today, but honestly, me in 3 day old pjs, bad bed hair and in desperate need of a bath just isn't a good idea.  No worries -- I'm hopping into the tub and getting ready for work in a few.  I'll be squeaky clean and fairly presentable in no time at all.

In the meantime:  Happy Saturday.  The fur babies and I send you lots of snuggles and snorts and kisses.  Enjoy!
