The Husband is out Christmas shopping as well as grocery shopping. It is warm-ish and rainy. There was even a thunderstorm this morning before daylight. Rain came down, it sounded like, in torrents, and the flashes of lightning were sporadic and added just the right touch to a rainy morning. Even though the Husband got up and went to tai chi, I remained behind today and just caught up on some much-needed sleep.
When I woke up, just a little before Noon – today I didn’t set an alarm – there was a doggie head on my arm and a doggie leg and foot up under my chin. It was unnerving to wake up and find something at your throat. For a moment there I thought of screaming, but thought I’d better see what the thing was at my throat first before having a conniption. Willie, the owner of said doggie head, leg, and foot; didn’t wake up at all. He was just as sound asleep as he had been since the Husband left to go to tai chi.
Since getting up I have really done very little other than the normal morning routine things for me. One major surprise for today was a visit from Cheyenne. We actually had lunch together for the first time in many months. It was Good to catch up with him. We laughed and joked. We were serious a couple of times.
Today I have decided I am just going to enjoy the day. I am going to enjoy every pre-Christmas moment I can.
And, I am going to knit.
