came and went
for the most part
Except for a
slight malfunction with the plumbing
(so we had no use of water in the front part of the house)
NO WAY were we going to call a plumber on Christmas day!
we skipped Christmas dinner (and the associated mess and hassle)
and just did snacky finger foods
which was GREAT!
We went for a walk on the beach
which was perfect
When we got home
we picked some fresh oranges
added some champagne
and just chilled.
As the day fades into the past
I will remember it as a day
Chatted, napped, read, nibbled, shared gifts
that were personal, useful, creative
A day that was
and full of ease (despite the glitch in plans)
all because of my darling family
Pretty much perfect.
