Sweater of the Day #2266

Laurel and Jamie wrapped their masterpiece and placed it under the tree last night, and this morning their dad got to see the fruit of their efforts. Christmas in San Diego is pretty toasty – not sweater weather, unfortunately – so the new sweater didn’t get much wear today, but Laurel’s dad wore it enough for everyone to appreciate the spectacle.

Everyone was so welcoming today, and several presents were waiting for me under the tree; I even had a guest stocking by the fireplace, stuffed with a thoughtful array of sweets and trinkets. I wish I had things to give everyone else in return; they all deserve the best.

I’ll work something out.

Laurel’s birthady is in a few days, and it’s tradition here to have her cake after Christmas dinner, when everyone is still around. She has a bit of “excitement” afflicting her nose and throat, so I blew out the candles for her – the sparking kind that rekindle themselves if you aren’t thorough with your breath. When I finished she asked if I’d made a wish; it didn’t seem right to act as surrogate wishmaker.

It’s been a good day, despite some complications in the morning, and everyone is long worn out from the season. Time now, perhaps, for a little recovery from the holiday.
