I can't explain it, but walking around in the yard this afternoon, I had the greatest sense of contentment come over me. My chickens were pecking around, I was cleaning out the coop and getting fresh water in my new pink puffy suit on Christmas day, and I could not have been happier. I was dirty, the air was cold, it was quiet all around, the sun was shining, Gerry and Wesley were inside in their worlds and I was at peace. What more does a person need?
i gave Wesley a new bowl from my pal Barbara. We made Tibetan noodle soup last night for our Christmas Eve dinner and had leftovers for lunch today. I used to make the most elaborate meals on Christmas Eve, I look back on those days and shudder. It almost never went well and I was so tired by the end of the day, it hardly seemed worth it. Who can keep up with Martha Stewart anyhow?!
A bowl of noodle soup is so much better!
Gerry gave me a new Macbook Air, since my poor old dinosaur has died and he was tired of listening to me bitch about trying to blog with my iPad. This is one sweet little computer and blogging is now efficient and easy again. Hello, blog...... hello keyboard. Hello easy photo editing....
My girl is off to San Francisco in the morning. Her Christmas present. We are getting up at 3:45am to get her to her flight on time... ugh. It has been a lovely week having her home. Now a week on the west coast and then back here for one more week before school starts back. A nice balance.....
when did I get so short? I look like a puff ball in my carhardts, but I don't care, they feel so great!
Thanks mostly to Gerry and Wesley for making this such a special day and going to great effort to keep me sane! I love you both very much
