We had a cold front come through last weekend so I was able to comfortably cook for the holidays - but the cold never lasts long, and we've had temperatures in the 70's all week. Another air-conditioned Christmas.
We went to east Texas to see relatives - didn't even take a jacket. It was good to see everybody. Sent the daughter on a sleepover at her little cousin's house Christmas night - the B-I-L, S-I-L, husband and I got giddy with laughter over a video of "Borat" which none of us had ever seen. They had to watch all the trailers, interviews, and other extras on the DVD. We had played the singalong edition of "Mamma Mia" in the afternoon, got plenty silly with that.
Tip and Jasper were happy to see us this afternoon when we got home.
Now we have to get the house straightened up, plan for the blackeyed peas and cabbage open house we'll have on New Year's Day. Daughter is busy planning her evening with friends - before we left Texas, it was a party, now it's a screening of "Benjamin Button" and a sleepover with the girl gang. Between that and ice skating Saturday night, I plan to get lots of work out of her since much of the clutter seems to be hers.
