Picard-Make it so

Despite the icon...

...I'm not really in the Xmas spirit. Not being a humbug, just not really on the holiday express. I think it may be because I'm in charge of doing the Xmas thing at work. I put up a tree, decorations and lights at work right after Thanksgiving. I made the arrangements for the holiday luncheon. I guess some take joy in all this. It felt like just another part of my job. The luncheon was nice though. We went to Cullen's and I had lobster bisque and a nice tuna steak. I passed on the creme brulee this time. But creme brulee is usually worth breaking the low carb stricture I put on myself. Mmmm.

I didn't bring out our table top fiber optic tree at home 'till this weekend when the girls came over. And, tbqh, I was more excited about some of the stuff I got from the going out of business sale at Linens and Things. I purchased a nice 8'x10.5' wool rug for 80% off. I tried to find the design or a similar one online and FAILED. I searched a site called 1001 rugs, and the closest looking one didn't really look like my rug. Maybe I'll take a picture. Anyway, it's under my dining room table and looks quite nice. The cats looooove it and are working on getting it to smell like them. I also picked up some tablecloths and seat cushions for the wooden chairs.

I've gotten a few Xmas cards (including Katie's--Thank you!), but I haven't send any out yet. On the plus side, I did BUY cards! That's about 1/4 of the battle. Sigh.

I hope y'all are having a nice holiday season.
