Merry Christmas to You!
I'm in Toronto for the holidays and I'd intended to go around the neighbourhood with my camera to take some photos of the decorated houses, but it's been so green here - one day of snow this season and it didn't want to stick around for the big day - and also I found myself much too tired (and possibly too lazy, I've rediscovered 'rest') to go out after dinner, so those photos are not yet forthcoming. We'll have to see what's going on around my parents' when we go down tomorrow, I'm hoping the house nearby that is famous for putting the Griswolds' to shame is still putting on a show (it's like if you mixed Santa's Village and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - it'll charm you and make you feel like throwing up all at once).
Tonight we had our Christmas Eve dinner courtesy of my mother-in-law and husband who pulled off the best roast I've ever had, in a Wolf oven that is so good it makes me feel I have to dress up before I walk into the kitchen and stand near it. And now I'm off to put the presents under the tree which will be the second time this year: this morning I awoke in a panic because we'd forgotten to be 'Santa', so I rushed down with the presents, put them all out, then realised it's the 24th.
