Christmas Eve, a fire in the fireplace, my three pups gathered ’round. Last night, a wonderful evening of fun and friends at a Festivus party, where we had the airing of grievances, white elephant gift exchange, wine exchange, and a tasty Mexican food-inspired potluck.
I ended up choosing a gift that wasn’t a white elephant gift at all, rather it is a kit with a set up for a photo studio box with a tent that has four different colored backdrops, spotlights, tripod for my camera… I have been wanting something like this for the longest time and I took a moment to recognize that things happen for a reason, and to count my blessings.
And today, a new toaster oven *magically* appeared on my doorstep. I have been without a toaster for almost three years… Cheese toast for Christmas breakfast tomorrow!
