There will be no bells — dinner and a movie with friends will do it. I’ve enjoyed blogs and Christmas letters from friends whose homes were full of children and grandchildren over the holiday. We had our share of family too, but we broke with tradition this year. No Christmas Eve party. Instead Tom and I had a very enjoyably quiet Christmas eve day, a simple dinner followed by a car ride to look at Christmas lights, meandering into town to get a movie out of the Red Box at the local gas station. After the movie we warmed our toes by the fire.
Did I say we were alone? Silly me. We had our furry friends for company that night.
It was a lovely evening. More about the New Year to come…
