What a lovely day! Weather that feels like it's Christmastime (finally!), getting the last of the decorations placed around the house, the ornaments on the tree, and some cookie dough in the fridge, firming up to make some yummy cookies tomorrow.
There are still things to do - clean the house, finish the laundry, wrap presents for The Tim, and some odds and ends - but the big stuff is finished. With a week left, and time to enjoy everything about Christmastime and Christmas Day. I'll take it.
The only down side for today is that The Tim has to work this evening, so I'm on my own. Not that we are missing anything exciting, but I feel bad that he has to work so much during this time of year (six-day weeks instead of five-day weeks). He is the type of person though who makes the best of things, so though I'm sure he would rather have the day off, he doesn't get as bummed about it as I would.
This evening I'll probably do some reading while listening to Christmas music. Dug and I will go for his evening walk, and I'll have a nice cup of tea and a Christmas cookie or two. I would like to stay up to see some of "Saturday Night Live" with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Bruce Springsteen, but I sincerely doubt I'll be able to stay up that late!
Days and evenings like this at Christmastime just make me happy. It always feels that it should be like this. So many people try to do too much, and get so aggravated, I sometimes wonder why they even bother.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and that you're ready for it to be less than a week until Christmas Day!
