We celebrate Christmas in this house. Our Christmas tree has been up for about 2 weeks and as of last night, all the presents are wrapped and Christmas cards are done, waiting to be sent. We spent some time working together to tidy up the house today and then have been just enjoying the day as we please.

Tomorrow we will celebrate in our traditional fashion and then I return to work the following day. It's a difficult time of year for many of my clients so off to work I go. The full moon on top of the holiday will be interesting to be sure. My decorations are still up at work and will need to come down. I have a lovely windowsill in my cubby and will need to decide what to do with it once all the holiday decorations are done. Currently I have a cute little nativity set lining the window, a winter bird and a framed photo of my family that is winter themed with the word JOY on it. I also have a small tree decorated in maroon, browns and antiqued gold ornaments, some beads and teeny tiny white lights. I've really enjoyed that and maybe will keep the tree until New Year's.

As for normal household work, I tidied up in the kitchen and bathroom today. Pete has almost 2 weeks off and will be redoing the bathroom floor while I'm at work. The current flooring is now over 20 years old and past it's prime. On Friday, we picked out a few different flooring samples to bring home and try out....I think we have settled on a mottled gray floor....it's much darker than what we currently have but we are both up for a change. While we were at the store, we also looked into glass tiles for a backsplash in the kitchen. It's much more affordable than I thought it would be and looks fairly simple to install....we shall see.

I'm off to make tacos....Jeremiah's request for this Christmas Eve dinner.

Merry Christmas and Love to all!!
