I have a bunch of personal days to take at work by the end of the year, or I'll lose them, so I'm enjoying a lot of December long weekends! I can highly recommend it, since for me at least, I love being able to take time off at Christmastime. When you have some extra time off, everything is just a whole lot more leisurely.
Yesterday was probably my laziest day. I just noodled around in the morning, and then met my friend Kate for lunch. I owed her an overdue birthday lunch, and we had a really lovely time, and a yummy meal. Then I came home and just kinda hung out until The Tim got home from work, at which time we headed out to get a Christmas tree. We found one that is just so pretty, and our house smells so good now, all pine-y and fresh.
Jetsam is thrilled with the tree. Pip is puzzled by the whole thing, and *very* worried about the lights, as they go off and than on again, and that can't be a good thing as far as he's concerned. I have a feeling though, that once the ornaments come out, he'll be a little bit too interested ...
Today there was putting lights on the tree and baking (The Tim), and unpacking the non-tree ornaments and putting them in place (me). Just a few finishing touches are left. We'll probably decorate the tree tomorrow evening. I can't wait!!
In the meantime, we will be leaving the house shortly to go to the Christmas concert of the Philadelphia Boys Choir. Neither of us have seen/heard them in person, and we are excited for the concert. (The fact the it's being held less than a ten-minute walk away from our house doesn't hurt, either ...)
Have a lovely Christmastime Saturday evening!
