I took Lucy for a walk yesterday afternoon on the paths behind our house. It was four but already the light was waning, painting the sky beautiful colors.
I put up my Christmas tree yesterday and wrapped some presents to put under it. I hate putting up the tree but always enjoy it so much when it's up. I love unwrapping all of the old ornaments and taking a wander down memory lane. I have one ornament from Katie's first Christmas, a photo of her at six months, inside a tiny frame. It's hard to believe she was so little.
So I'm baking cookies, sending off a few cards to people overseas and decorating the house. It feels more like Christmas. We went to our Christmas party on Friday night which was nice. I had a glass of wine which is enough to enjoy but not enough to tell people how I really feel about them, although I'm pretty sure my face and body language does that for me.
Our medical director however got pretty drunk and in a speech told us all that he's trying harder, he's kind of a dick. He and I are a lot alike I think which is why we clash so much. Not sure if he knows that.
My bathroom reno is finished so I have a toilet in my bathroom again which is nice. A little paint touch up today and it's done.
Today I'm thankful for a peaceful home, filled with love.
