COILED
Funny how the year is winding down but we are winding up. I am wound up! The older I get, the faster it goes. And you know what? It's not like I ever really wind down. I think maybe I'll just keep on winding tighter and tighter until the end when I suddenly snap and go whizzing right out of the atmosphere, like the rubber bands I used to shoot down the hallway for my cat.

The nice thing about being wound up is that a great deal of it is with anticipation. There's so much to look forward to: my brother and his wife, and my mom arriving, the holidays, all the events that are on the calendar and then, just think! There's all of next year! We'll probably go somewhere and do some really amazing things. We'll have so much time! I might get to see you! I might get to see YOU, too. I can't wait.

I took this photo earlier just for the fish.* I look smirky in it even though I wasn't actually smirking. How about them cheekbones? Hee!

What are YOU looking forward to?

I love that picture of you! You look like you are up to something, and I would like to be your accomplice, if you please :) I am beginning to feel the anticipation as well. I am making lasagna for dinner, and the sauce is bubbling happily on the stove, waiting for water to boil for the noodles. I have been cooking to Christmas carols all day. And now I just want to go shopping! Tomorrow.

PS Does the RSS work now? Let me know, because I am not sure I did it right. I can try some other things I think.

Re: From Megsie

The RSS does work, which I'm thrilled about!

Cooking to Christmas carols is lovely. We always have them loud when we're baking Christmas cookies. I think I'll start baking this weekend. I'm almost done with cards/letters and we'll also get our tree on Sunday (I hope!!). Next week is insane, with something every day!

Great photo.
I am looking forward to my friend Gwendolyn's Solstice choir performance on Saturday (hope I'm not still sick!), and to my trip to LA for Christmas. Like you said, there is a WHOLE NEW YEAR coming up, with places to go and things to do.

A whole year! So cool. :)

So many things it is hard to know where to start: to helping the children enjoy a Prague Advent and a Swiss Christmas, to cross country skiing for the first time, to the New Year and time for art, writing and maybe more skiing! To visitors and travel. This year, come by Prague won't you?

You know I want to!!

I love that picture!

I am looking forward to having the week off between Christmas and New Year's!

Yay for vacation!

Thanks!
You look like you're Up To Something in that picture!

What makes you think I'm not? :P

I agree, great photo! You look like you should be a character in a murder mystery named Mystique. :)
I am looking forward to baking NO cookies this year, not a one. I was stressed and crabby all of the last two Christmas seasons, primarily because of all the baking for the 60+ families who expect a little something from us, and I would really rather enjoy this December. So, our friends are getting peppermint-white-chocolate popcorn, my family will be enjoying Lindt truffles, and I will be sitting by the tree relaxing with everyone! (At least that's how it plays out in my head. Will see how cooperative this popcorn turns out to be.)

hahaha! NO cookies?! That isn't Christmas! :D Well, okay, if that's your stress point, then I can see how cutting it out or simplifying it would certainly make a difference. But NO COOKIES?! O! The HORROR!

RARRRRR! Look at you, gorgeous!

Hahaha! It's a flattering ANGLE. :P

Very foxy!
