Joyous Holiday and No Sleep

I was unable to sleep last night. Perhaps too much Chex Party Mix (wonderful munchy food that DH makes once a year in a HUGE batch, and responsible for at least two pounds of weight gain for the holidays). Perhaps it was the fact that today is Christmas Eve, the last day of my holiday working schedule, or...or...or. Who knows? All I know is that I was awake at 2am, and although I tried to sleep until 3am, I never really managed to accomplish it.

I gave up at 3:05am, grabbed another small bowl of Chex Mix, and went down to my computer. DH will wake early today and we'll go out to breakfast before heading to work. We'll try and grab a drink on the way home tonight and then, tomorrow is Christmas with his birthday coming on Monday. Like foolish people we're open for business on Monday, so we only get the one day off this weekend, although we will take two next weekend to celebrate New Year.

Christmas Wishes for You... It is my true hope that those of you who celebrate the Christmas holiday have a blessed one, celebrating with those who you love and allowing yourselves to be happy both in your home and your worship. I wish you joy in your lives, today and in the future. Blessed Christmas.

Thank you, my dear. I had a lovely holiday, and tomorrow it's back to work *sigh*. My gifts were perfect, and my glass saw is glorious. All is good. I hope that your Holiday was all that you wished for and more.

My holiday was lovely! Not going to work yet, but I am doing a private report and so I do have to work at home.
Thank you, Shirebound. Love your Piglet and ornament user pic. I hope that you and gorgeous and wonderful Pip had a holiday to remember and that every wish came true for you.

Thank you, Clodia. I'm quite fond of Russian Icons. I had the good fortune to attend an exhibit of them at our local Russian Art Museum last year which was absolutely incredible - the first and last time that many of these were out of Russia. The artistry is magnificant. I hope your Holiday was fantastic and all that you could have wished for.

Thank you so much. We had a wonderful holiday, made even better by the good wishes of friends both near and far. I hope that your Holiday was everything you had wished for.

I feel so blessed with my on-line friends and you are certainly one of them. Fröhliche Weihnachten to you and to yours.

Seasonal Greetings to you too. What a lovely picture - I like the idea of it showing Mary in her 'lying-in'.
Isn't it a wonderful icon. I think that Nativities are, all too often, very stylized. I wanted something a bit more out of the ordinary to share with all of you.

Well, it was both good and bad (see today's post for details). But in the main, I enjoyed a nice day and the prime rib I cooked for dinner turned out marvelous, so that was good too. I envy you being able to spend the holidays with horses. I adore them, but I'm an urban girl - no large four-footed wonders in my life.
