yes, it’s up and decorated but of course you’re right, the holiday spirit in question is the glass of scotch I just poured myself because at 7:16pm there’s no chance now that I’m going to squeeze in a workout and a shower before David makes it home from playing racquetball! We spent all day getting the tree decorations done and of course David ends up with the lion’s share of the work because I’m a bit limited by what I can reach from my wheelchair. Things don’t look QUITE the same as when I was doing it all but we both give a little (oh we are just SO full of peace and goodwill towards each other…hahaha) and it all ends up getting done and looking just fine 😉
I decided to make sweet potato casserole for dinner – an old favorite that I’m sure the girls remember well. Of course I always forget just how long peeling and chopping can take me these days and I’d washed the bedding earlier as well so by the time I’d got everything simmering and the bed remade there went my workout time. I’ll tick that box tomorrow but in the meantime everywhere looks very festive, the Xmas music is playing and since same sex marriages were legal as of yesterday here in Seattle there are lots of very happy people milling around.
’tis the season 😉
