In fact, the acquistion of said slippers--on sale! and an additional 20% off!--was one of the top highlights of the weekend. After, obviously, having Jules here, and also:
- FREE Nutcracker tickets
- White Christmas viewing (I shall neither confirm nor deny whether I did the "Blue Skies" dance.)
- Near completion of Christmas shopping (one gift to go!)
- Re-reading of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (That was not a group activity, but it was exciting.)
- a solid three days of Quality Time with Jules
We also saw Invictus (four thumbs up), watched Elf ("I like smiling! Smiling's my favorite."), consumed at least ten pots of tea in three days, and had Zorba's and Hello Cupcake. Weekend = success.
Now. Two working days till I head home for Christmas for ten days. But before that, I have to bake five dozen cookies. Also, pack. Minor details.
I have taken to wearing my hair in a braid. For the first time in my life, it's long enough. I can't decide if it's cute or a tad too Little House on the Prairie, so I haven't yet gone public with it. Jury's still out.
Anyway, my slippers and my braid and I are going to bed. To dream about ratios of flour and sugar and whether I can get away with only three pairs of shoes for a week at home.
