Twas the Day After Xmas…

26 Dec

… and i have to confess, the feasting and fun, had left quite a mess.  

The stockings were empty and strewn on the floor, while traces of cookies led straight to the door. 

The food had been eaten, the presents unwrapped, now the cats on the couch, happily napped.

Looking around, i just had to grin, what a wonderful Christmas this one had been!

So later this year, when i’m fussy and whine, it may help to remember, all the joys that were mine…

It was a lovely, lovely Christmas.  My family was fun, which they usually are.  They had a good time, and liked their presents, and enjoyed the meal.

My Sir joined us later in the evening, after doing his own usual Xmas stuff and taking care of a family situation.  He got there just as we started opening presents, and seemed to settle right into place.

It was sooooo good having him there.

After everyone else left, we settled on the couch and traded stories of our day. 

i put my legs on his lap, and he massaged them, caressing, stroking, and rubbing til i purred.  After standing on them for 100 hours, it was like heaven.  {Ok, not 100 hours.  But probably 12!!}

i was so tired i could have fallen asleep right there, quite happily, but he had to go home, so i went to bed.  And didn’t get up til two hours later than i usually do.

Give me a few days off and i turn into a big ole lazy hag!  But now, having drunk copious amounts of coffee and feeling all energized, i’m going to happily clean up the last of last night’s debris.

Tonight, we’re going out for dinner with His son and son’s girlfriend.  So there’s more to  look forward to.   And more after that, i’m sure.

It feels like my life is full of so many good things, so much to enjoy and celebrate.

{Contented sigh…}

i am so happy.

Hoping your morning after is as good as mine…

      Laughing… here’s a quote from my fb page recently:

      i think i’ll make that my motto for 2012!
