30 December 2009

On the first day of Christmas, my angel gave to me a lovely party at the home of my boss, the collector of Peanuts Memorabilia.

On the second day of Christmas, my angel gave to me a low key gathering with my cousin, her husband, and other relatives.  We missed Kathy, but we enjoyed tasty foods, and the most important gift--the gift of family.
On the third day of Christmas my angel gave to me a lovely afternoon with my mother, a delicious roast beef dinner, the funny antics of a puppy, and the start of a great visit with Jeri.

On the fourth day of Christmas my angel gave me to me 8 hours in the car with Walt, Jeri and Dexter, lunch at the Burger Queen and part 1 of an old Michael Connelly audio book.
On the fifth day of Christmas my angel gave to me an evening with the Sykes family, with Tom, Laurel and Brianna, a honey-baked ham, lots of laughs, a few gifts, and a chance to hear Jeri play the violin.

On the seventh day of Christmas my angel gave to me a chance to spend another evening with Bri and her parents.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my angel gave to me a beautiful day of solitude.  I didn't get dressed, didn't do anything but sit and catch up on things that had been recorded on the DVR while we were gone.

On the tenth day of Christmas my angel sent to me a package from Australia, with fun things like the tissues pictured at the right (she finally admits it's all about me for a change!) and the calendar she's made to raise money for the Kangaroo Rescue for which she works.  It was Christmas all over again.
