so this is Christmas....
What a nice photo of the wife to celebrate our 20th anniversary, eh? Lady looks magnificent doesn't she? She is even nicer than she looks too :)
Yep, we had a great anniversary indeed.
I am a Quaker as you may know, and we might say "no day is more sacred than another" (HAHAHA!) and there is minimum fuss amongst Quakers on Christmas, officially. (the wife and I party hearty...for a lot of reasons! Not just the birthday of baby Jesus, but our own, you know, special day too)
BUT ANYWAY I thought that a humble way to spend Christmas, and since NObody else wanted to do it, would be to clean the Quaker meetinghouse. My pal Nancy joined. We have no clergy and no staff and members rotate around who gets to clean, and I am part of a small group that keeps the place scrubbed.
I usually try to be busily vacuuming something when it comes time to clean the 3 public bathrooms thereby tricking my partner into having to do it, but I was in a generous mood and jumped in and did them first ;)
(trying to earn bonus points with SANTA was I??? AND God and the baby Jesus, hmm????)
Outside the meeting,
inside the meeting
Potters always joke that thrill of opening a just fired kiln is like Christmas morning....and I had a just fired kiln to open on Christmas morning!
My best pal Lori Buff sent me a surprise mug for Christmas...exquisite!
The wife and I made tortillas for guac and sweet potato burritos OH MY...also a pumpkin pie for Christmas morning breakfast...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Hope you have a Merry one :)
