I love Christmas day. Christmas Eve is our big celebration (family dinner, gifts, etc) but today is devoted to lounging about, eating leftovers from Christmas Eve dinner (fish and potato salad make an excellent breakfast) and sneaking Christmas cookies. What? The cookie plate is empty? No idea how that happened.
After a leisurely start to the morning (cocooned in a blanket, I finally read the Winter 2014 issue of “Slightly Foxed”), there was a family walk to take advantage of the glorious weather. Now, congratulating ourselves on being so active, we are content to hole up at home for the rest of the day. There are books to be read, movies to be watched (“Little Women”, I am thinking), and, for dinner, a delicious little duck to be cooked. And, best of all, there are three more days without work stretching ahead of me after this. Bliss!
Merry Christmas, everyone.
