Happy Merry!


I am alive, finally well, and ensconced in the joy of the season. I wish for you and yours the best of all holidays, what ever you celebrate, for celebrate we must, here in the bleak winter, as the days finally come through the nadir.

A very Merry Happy, dearest darlings. A very Merry Happy, indeed!

(We are feasting on various cheeses, Prosecco sparkling wine, grapes, Christmas cookies frosted and sprinkled by the kids, a spicy artichoke and spinach spread, roasted peppers in oil, figs in grappa, olives stuffed with gorgonzola, paprika salami and Jack's fresh baguettes. Wish you were here to share the bliss.)

Merry Christmas to you and your family. We just had Jewish Christmas Eve with Flippy's parents, and on Christmas day we're just staying home and I'll cook a turkey. And we'll watch football.

Figs in grappa--so elegant. Actually, it all sounds elegant. And a feast of this magnitude is obtainable in rural Wisconsin? Who knew?

Merry Christmas!!!!

Merry Christmas, dahling! I'm off today, but have no other time off... sigh. My kids have done a reasonable good approximation of the after-effects of a natural disaster here, and I have sooooo much cleaning to do.

Merry Happy to all in Piffleland. With a promise of "drivable" snow--so we can get back to the airport--you may be inundated with paternal folks from Oregon.

We have decided after a depressing Christmas that all we needed was wee ones running amok. We will see about next year.

Love to all in Piffleland. You are really fun.

Glad you rallied to enjoy the festivities and hope you don't have to go in to see sick people! My husband is off today and has been since the 22nd, so the phone is ringing off the hook with people declaring that they've injured various muscles and back bones! Well, it sure wasn't because of shovelling snow! Just a dusting here and no major snowfalls predicted for up to Jan. 10th!
