I get so overwhelmed by Christmas, no matter how hard I try. But wow, Christmas good is really good. It made my day to watch the two older guys who direct the carpool traffic amass little gift piles on the sidewalk as the kids and drivers opened the windows to hand them little treats.
Instead of scurrying around like a good little Christmas doobie on Sunday, I joined the boys for a hike to treasure island. It's a tiny pennisula actually, accessible by a path behind some giant McMansions and old school mansions on the sound. We always talk about taking a picnic there in summer, but hasn't happened. We should call it Tick Island, because those are the year-round residents.
Now, time to put off for today what I could put off until tomorrow.
Doesn't that wood pile inspire you? Or at least make you feel prepared?
Ho Ho Ho.
