Merry Christmas!

December 25th, 2003 · No Comments

I’m sitting amidst a pile of wonderful stuff. :D First off, the clothes. I got a new red sweater, green pants, a cute shortish black skirt with red flowers and a black blouse to go with it, and a lovely red velvet dress. Books include Shepherds Abiding (the newest Mitford book) and The Black Moth by Georgette Heyer, which is the only one that’s currently in print that I both don’t own and haven’t read. Also got Coconut Lime Verbena salt scrub from Bath and Body Works, a really really cool black leather refillable journal which has a celtic knot pattern embossed on it, the Pride and Prejudice: a Latter-day Comedy soundtrack, the FotR soundtrack, a TTT day-by-day calendar, gift certificates to Hot Dog on a Stick, and a CD of an old record by the Limelighters that my dad listened to growing up and passed on to us. I finally got to open the sparkly present that Lou sent me ages ago, and to my utter delight it contained a Harry Potter chess set! Whoot! It looks just like the one in SS. :D

Three presents which are coming but which I didn’t get today are the new Real Group Christmas CD which accidentally got sent to Michigan and therefore didn’t arrive in time, a set of pocket-sized editions of Jane Austen’s collected works which my mom bought ages ago but now can’t find, and a black wool cloak which is not finished yet. But just knowing that those presents are on the horizon makes me happy. :D

Plus it snowed overnight, so we have a light dusting our there. Heading up to Grandma’s this afternoon for more presents and Christmas fun.

Hope you all have a great day. I’m going to read Heyer now. :D
