Christmas is my favorite time of year, cliched as it might be. My birthday being in the middle of it is more like a present than any gift could be.
But since I have mentioned presents, I will tell you what I have gotten so far, even though my birthday isn't until tomorrow. Grant got me an electric blue Ipod shuffle, that I promptly named Leland, which he was nice enough to give me a few weeks ago when it was delivered. I use it more than I ever thought I would.
My sister gave me a "themed" present - a cute T-shirt with the recycling symbol and what looks like stylized paint spatters, some super-cool recycled paper coasters (the paper looks like its from Chinese newspaper!), and a "Live Life Green" keychain, with a last minute addition of an orange and almond flavored bar of super dark chocolate. Does she know me or what?
Grant arrived home with an armful of deep red roses. I baked bread and we ate fondue. I've made paper snowflakes, and watched Home Alone while Grant did laundry and has been putting my four-poster together.
Could tomorrow be better? I'm not sure.
