But everyone still comes over Christmas day. Sometimes we have Christmas breakfast while opening gifts, sometimes Christmas dinner. It's not like Thanksgiving where everything is planned, we kind of play it by ear. Easier for all this way. But I do do a lot of cookie baking in the weeks ahead and we do mail out holiday cards and goodies to family who don't live close.
So, during this lull time, we will decorate our tree (which we have put up... but no ornaments yet), buy our Christmas cards, and make lists. We will also do a lot of cookie nibbling, holiday music listening, and maybe a bit more holiday decorating (we do put a live garland up on the fireplace mantle and around the front door around 10 days before Christmas... but that's about it).
At the moment we are anticipating another bout of winter weather which is supposed to arrive sometime tomorrow. They are predicting possible ice, snow, and sleet by Friday am. I already cancelled my doctor's appt for Friday morning. It was just an annual, so I can reschedule later. But if the weather is bad, I don't plan to drive in it.
I did however, go to pottery class today and my chess set is finally finished. I had finished making it last semester, but hadn't finished glazing all the tiles and chess pieces. Now I have. Also I made a few mugs (as well as about 50 cylinders). I'm progressing in proficiency, albeit slowly.
Hope you are all having a lovely lull time...
Ghost and Julie are. Here they are doing what cats do best... lying about...
