five things, Christmas Eve edition

  IMG_7213 1. I think that two sick people and one person recovering from minor surgery is quite enough for the week before Christmas.
2. I think I am glad to have picked up my knitting again.
3.I think I can live with a green Christmas, if it means there's a white day-after Christmas close in the works. Spoons under pillows and fingers crossed!
4. I think that for such a secular family, we really, really enjoy this whirl of excitement as well as the deep sense of gratitude that this time of year brings.
5. I ask this every year, and I'll ask it again. What's better? Presents or expecting presents? I think presents.
