Merry Christmas!?

It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas!  Well, in my house it is.  This is Day 3 of listening to Jingle Bells.  Over and over and over and over.  On the clarinet.  I think it's Jingle Bells, anyway.  I just may need a little eggnog in the near future.  For celebrating Christmas, you know.

So rather than fight the ambiance of my house, I'm embracing it.  I must say it's a catchy little tune.  And it really is one of the things on my "must do" ride on a one-horse open sleigh through the snow.  Well, it can be a four-horse open sleigh.  I'd feel better if one horse wasn't solely responsible for pulling me around in the snow.

So as part of my embracing, I decided to play on pinterest while I listened to Jingle Bells.  Sorry laundry.  Sorry everything else that is waiting for me.  You will be taken care of in time.  In time for something.  But my time right now is just going to be wasted a bit while I clear my head and get ready for Christmas.  When I shut down pinterest, I was a bit surprised to turn around and see bright green grass where my Christmas mind expected snow.

I'd really like to go here and ride on that sleigh.  Cozy, huh?

This has nothing to do with Christmas, but since it's not really Christmas yet, I can combine it in here, right?  Love this. 

Now my clarinet player extraordinaire has wandered into the room, music stand in one hand, clarinet in the other, to give me a "one person concert".  Apparently she doesn't realize how well I've heard it all along.  Time to go be an engaged audience member!

Let me be the first to wish you Merry Christmas!  And Happy Festivus!


  1. Since you're in the Christmas spirit, let's go shopping for Christmas tree stuff! I saw cool lights at Target :)

  2. Funny how children can bring Christmas to every day living! :) Love it!
