A bit earlier than usual, I've come down with my seemingly annual Christmas cold, so it looks like I'll be slowing down even a bit more than I'd even intended while writing my last post. I'm most-grateful to be done with shopping for my family since my Christmas with them is next weekend already. I had planned to put up the tree yesterday but only got as far as clearing the space on this tiny wall beside the mantel and then was too pooped to do more. I went to bed around 7:30 last night, and there's no time or energy for tree-work today either, so it will have to be good-enough in the meantime just to have the spot ready and waiting, especially since I feel like dragging a blanket and pillow over to the cleared-out corner for a nap. Ah, December! I will take the cold as confirmation of all my good intentions from last Friday and simply let myself rest.
And somewhat off-subject: How handsome is actor Barry Bostwick?!
His movie Holiday Baggage was on TV while Mom and I put up the tree while I was home last week, and as I told her: Hubba-hubba! Talk of tree-decorating reminded me of him and the movie just-now. And I'll let that be the positive note on which this post ends. :)
