Christmas

Merry Christmas, y'all!

The goose is getting ready to cook. rahirah has made up a rice & water chestnut stuffing. There will be yams and potatoes. I haven't cooked much of anything this year, but there is a plate of oatmeal cookies left from the other day (goodie day at work).

We haven't opened any presents yet, but the in-laws have sent me a few movies (The Blues Brothers 25th Anniversary Edition and Charlotte's Web) and Barb's brother gave me John Prine's new album, Fair and Square. My iPod did just need resetting, I followed the directions on the help website and she's working again, so I can finally LISTEN to John Prine...

Yesterday sillymagpie took us shopping up and down 16th Street and that was enjoyable. I found the CD of an album we had way back when we lived on the Zuni reservation, mostly covers but some originals by what is obviously still a local Zuni band (they had some new discs available there, too). I only lived on the reservation for two years, and I was very young, but it left an indelible impression on me (The Land of the Shalako).

May all your days be warm and bright.

Happy!

Your willpower astounds me. I generally open my presents at the earliest possible moment. But, delayed gratification or no, I hope you continue to enjoy the day and all the rest of the days, too. Merry, merry!

It's a holdover from childhood. I got into trouble once for being a little too "sneaky" about checking out presents before it was time and it taught me a lesson! :) So we hold on until folks are around. That said, thanks for the coasters -n- cutters! :) :) I'll have to make some more cookies, right?

Wellllll, not right away. (I did say that one gift was a bit self-serving, and clearly that was the one. *g*)

I never denied that, really. It's just the getting started part.
