This is the first sunny day it's been light enough indoors that I could take pics without flash! So, late, but still cheerful Christmas pics!  Moose medal! Thank you, hon!

An evergreen cone that weighs as much as an egg, and feels like a solid surface. The giver says that when it opens to drop its seeds, it will *explode*! I think when I de-decorate after the 7th, the cone will be relegated to a porch, so it can 'splode there ,and not all on the carpet. OH painted the tarot Hermit Father Christmas

Shenannigans under the flatscreen, from a German pyramid to an Ohio Art top, c. 1950-ish, Steiff bears and a Hermann chimp, lion and lamb Engelbreit tin, Father Christmas, elf and Santa stocking hooks, Beldar and Primate conehead Santas all painted by OH, a watch cap, a toque, and a beanie, gifts in the past, to the Pinewood Derby car OH made for me when the boys were in Cub Scouts. All good fun.

Observing Old Christmas is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the decorations before they all get stowed again till next year.

yesterday. Full of laziness and nowhere to be, and the person I love best. And so many well-wishes from my flisties! [ profile] meus_venator, [ profile] aerynsun5, [ profile] milly_gal, [ profile] stir_of_echoes, [ profile] phoenix1966, [ profile] kazluvsbooks, [ profile] mickeym, thanks for the messages and the adorable v-gift!

I could get used to this special treatment stuff! Thanks again!

And for my USian flisties and friends, Happy Fourth of July!

This was supposed to be my weekend off. But nooo, here I am draggin' your heavy ass through the burning desert, with your dreads hanging out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude, acting all big and bad. And what the hell is that smell?!? I could'a been at a barbecue!

Party hat!

We don't have a fireplace, but we do have a yawning black hole when the tv is off, so we've been playing the fireplace dvd a lot during the holidays, without music, just with the crackle-snap-hiss of "fireplace sounds." I've been creeping the Other Human out by randomly looking up and cooing in my best Lauren Bacall* voice, "What a pretty fire!" or "That's a pretty fire."

"Stop it! Stop it! You sound creepy, stop it!"

"Such a pretty fire..."

Eschewing carols for the fireplace dvd, flames flickering and the snap and crackle as the wood is consumed. Missing the scent of woodsmoke, but not the choking, coughing part. And likewise eschewing problematic eggnog (we all had salmonella one Christmas day, even the cat) for Bushmill's honey? J'approve.

These decisions are wise today, and going forward.

Merry Happy, Flist!

Thanks for the pretty paper and e-cards I've gotten from my lovely flist this Christmas--you know who you are. And to [ profile] fireheart13 for the adorable v-gift.

We have a light dusting of snow--like a very large baker sprinkled powdered sugar over the windowsills and bushes, and left the roads perfectly clear. Best snow ever, if you're not a skier or sledder.

Second batch of coffee's brewing, for those who haven't switched to tea. The scent of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies is being overtaken by the oatmeal walnut cookies baking. Soon it'll be time to put in the ham. The tree is twinkling and the old toys will fill the empty space underneath for the rest of the holidays (don't you hate that bare, bereft space? This is better).

Warmth and light and love to you all. Peace and kindness, and a Happy New Year!

To each and every one of my Canadian friends--on and off flist! Canadia is where all the best tv shows are shot, right? And where Canadian Actor Bingo is played? Oh, Canada!

The resident Other Human makes pysanky. These are displayed in front of a mirror and scattered amid the antique stemware and the dragons, I apologize for the lack of quality of the photos, but here are a few of the eggs that we've kept. He damaged his hand in an accident, and these were all made afterward. The ones he made before had more intricate patterns and more delicate lines. We don't have a single one of those, they were all given away as wedding or housewarming gifts, and for other occasions. But these are very nice, too.

To all of you who keep Christmas, I wish you merry. And to you, as well as to those of us who observe the season on another path, I wish all of us light, and love, and laughter, the warmth of friends and family, the knowledge that the year has turned and the light is coming back. For the season, blessed surcease of sorrow and worry and pain, and moments of joy to each, and to all.

This is a time of religious observance for many. For all of you who celebrate or observe, may this be a joyous and rewarding time of renewal.

As for me, I observe my favorite holiday thrice a year, and tomorrow is one of those days of celebration--Half Price Candy Day! You are all welcome to celebrate with me!

Just making a quick post to wish everyone who celebrates a peaceful, happy Thanksgiving, with your family of choice--your own, or one you've made or found. Or on your own, if that's your preference, or at work, if that's how it worked out this year. I hope we all have something to be thankful for. And to those who don't observe the day, have a great Thursday and a good weekend!
