What I Got for Christmas!Published December 23, 2008
Well...I'm not sure. You see, today as I write this blog, it's December 16 (yes, sometimes the entries are written ahead, especially over holidays). So without channeling Santa *s* I really don't know any specifics. I grew up in Northern Indiana where Christmas usually meant cold weather and snowdrifts, and Texas doesn't often match that expectation. But it does today. We've actually got ice on the roads, and snow spitting from the heavens. It's the purr-fect day for a fire in the fireplace, hot cocoa, and snuggling under blankets with fur-kids. What's in store for Christmas day? I will enjoy sleeping an extra bit of time--well, as long as Magic will let me. He doesn't really recognize "days off" and the human desire to stay in bed when there's so much to DO. And Seren will take advantage of the extra available laps throughout the day. Ah...bliss! Shhh, don't tell, but Magic will get some special treats, a stuffed bear, and a new collar. Seren also gets treats, and a new fluffy bed. But they could really care less about such things, compared to spending time with their human loved ones. I feel the same way. Time together is the most precious gift we can share. Thank you, all my readers, for sharing your time with me this past year. Above and beyond any fancy-wrapped presents, I've already been gifted with so much. My family is healthy and happy (furred and otherwise). We have a comfortable home. I have heavy insulated socks that keep my toes warm. (Right now, that's a big plus!) Work is rewarding, sometimes frustrating, but always interesting--with new challenges coming in 2009 that will open new doors. What did you get for Christmas this year?
