Getting in the spirit...

Early morning despite having stayed up entertaining guests last night. A good evening. No fire, no carols, but lots of interesting conversation, terrific hors d'oeurves and fine wine.

Revisions this morning, a brief jog to the gym, then off to the movies.

Home now, and ready for a bite to eat. Tomorrow, Christmas shopping. As always, the season takes odd turns, emotionally and otherwise.
