i dug up an old recipe that i had written down years ago. going over it, it looked like i should be able to turn this into something edible. after a bit of a late start, i managed to get everything done that i wanted to on friday. cleaned the place up a bit, a trip to the post office, all the grocery shopping for christmas, bought a present, did a 50 minute run, had a round of amazing sex.. okay, that last thing wasn't planned..

on sunday morning we visited my grandmother. in the afternoon i read for at least two hours and decorated the tree and the rest of the house some more. today i'm expecting my parents around 3:00PM. christmas dinner will be at seven. & no there's not going to be any turkey.

it's not really a tradition in this country to buy gifts for the whole extended family. possibly because we also have this thing called sinterklaas three weeks earlier.. perhaps that's slightly changing. people seem to be spending more money on christmas every year.

just so you know, the front of our house has no light display that lights up the whole street. & neither is there a giant santa or inflatable homer simpson in our back garden! :D
i like to keep things as simple as i can. just a few decorations here and there in the house, plants, flowers, lots of candles.. quality not quantity. i want to enjoy the company, good food, a fine glass of wine. i want a house that's warm, not only because the heater is on..

so, happy christmas to all of you. and take care of yourself and each other..

You forgot to mention the homeless who need help and donating to charity but I guess that's not something we only should do during the Christmas season.

When you have more time I really like to hear about you doing LJ support. Happy Holidays, Tam

yes, taking care of the poor and the homeless isn't necessarily a christmas thing, or at least it shouldn't be. people's problems won't go away just because the christmas season is over..

the inflatable homer simpson you mentioned, i've actually seen one myself! there are different ones. there's a homer holding a box of donuts, but the one i saw wasn't. :D

yeah i find those giant inflatable beings to be a bit tacky. not something that i'd want on my front lawn, but whatever. bye tam, i hope you're enjoying the holidays.
