Merry Christmas baby

Merry Christmas to you, and Happy Holidays, and
Happy whatever festival of lights you celebrate.
We've been in the stores today trying to catch
up with ourselves and make sure Christmas is
the way we like it. The baaaad colds we picked
up in Italy, slowed us down this week. I feel
like writing Cold FX a thank you letter. That
stuff works and we're on our feet again.

Thank you for giving me a very special present
all year round -- your kind encouragement and
comments. You more than keep me going, you
make me downright happy, and confirm my
faith daily that the world is a good place. My
thoughts go out tonight to the many people
on the planet who don't live in a good place,
and I hope that together bit, by bit, we can
change that.

My drawing tonight is of the Christmas
bouquet I was making for our kitchen table.
There are roses, a flower I don't know but like
very much, leaves with red berries that smell like
Christmas, and now a few pine boughs.

The title of the post refers to the song --
Merry Christmas baby, you sure do treat me

Have a loving-the-way-you-celebrate day.
