Dept. of Baby It's Cold Outside

December Twenty Seventh

It is two days post Christmas and it is very, very cold here in Chicago.

But it's warm and colorful here at Casakaffyr. In the warmth and color - courtesy of the fattest. thickest Christmas tree I do believe we've ever had in our living room - with 150 very bright lights and many shiny ornaments and garlands. It gladdens my heart.

This is good, because other parts of me are less than glad. Unhappy mouth? Check. Back pain, thanks to moving an exceedingly heavy bookcase out of the dining room and building an equally heavy bookcase to go in its place? Oh boy howdy, check. Stomach pain because ... well, I don't know why; possibly too much butter and rich food? Indeed. Check, checkity-check.

Christmas dinner was had, eight guests were entertained. Gifts were gifted and received. (I'm so lucky to have family and friends who know my obsessions ... two more action figures for my mantelpiece, and more reading material.)

Still, it took two days to clean up, and both BB and I slept between 6 p.m. Dec. 26 and 11 a.m. Dec. 27. We're getting old

Owwww! Feel better soon, although I'm glad that at least the body doesn't lessen the heart's joy.

Thanks for the good wishes; I joked a couple of times on Christmas Day and on the day before Christmas that Santa's gift to me over the last couple of years were definitely not welcome.

Perhaps the back and the mouth were existential lumps of coal from the Krampus? Heh.

Today, my back is ... manageable, so I'm sitting as straightly and as properly as I can while I type. The tree is a lovely burst of color to my right, and every so often, I glance over, smile, and return to what I'm doing.

That made me smile, too :)
