This morning I ventured out to do the last, I hope, of my Christmas shopping. I like to get little bits of decadent food that Attila loves, things he or we would never buy just to eat. It makes Christmas Day special, with little culinary treats to savour throughout the day. I bought some crisps for myself, a little treat to enjoy today, a wee bit high in sodium and calories, so dinner had to be pared down to an egg, with green beans and carrots on the side. The egg and vegetables were actually all I could manage, I was so full from from my indulgent treat.
Today the weather was dreary indeed. The Christmas Tree lights kept the up the cozy factor in the living room. The two clocks continue to tic tic toc in almost unison, which adds to the ambience of the living room.
Attila is groaning through his pre-holiday work week, he is really looking forward to a week off. It will be nice to have him around the house for a week, I think I could get used to that. I do however like the rhythm of the work week, up very early, mornings that literally fly by, short and lazy afternoons, and quiet evenings.
We have been watching the series Schitt’s Creek, and we are really enjoying it. Because we used to live in an area where very wealthy people owned seasonal properties, the formerly wealthy characters are vivid, and dead on. Of course, the rich people in Schitt’s Creek have been “declawed”, so to speak, which allows them to slowly evolve into human beings.
