Good God, I'm behind! There are nearly 5o entries out there from my fellow bloggers, just waiting for me to read. Meanwhile, This D*mn House was silent for two WHOLE DAYS. So I couldn't possibly allow a third to go by though I'm just barely ekeing this entry in under the wire.
Part of the business of the past few days was finishing decorating. Specifically all of those outside ones we never managed to finish. Finally did that on Christmas Day. Of course it was 30-some degrees only to be nearly 70 both yesterday and today. Here's some of the results.
I have good reason for the silence. I was busy with celebrations and celebration prep. In fact, I only recently arose from a brief nap (of about three hours) after being awake and in motion for nearly 36 hours! That's right. From 8 something yesterday morning until nearly 7 p.m. tonight, I was doing stuff in the house or locked in the throes of a celebration with family friends.
We were all so tired when this celebration wrapped up that most of us could barely speak. There were long, uncomfortable silences and even the 10-year-old guest seemed to lose his concentration on the John Wayne western he was engrossed in.
So, part 1 of the revelry is wrapped up. And I couldn't let it slip away without wishing the happiest of holidays to you and yours from me and mine at This D*mn House.
