Christmas Post

Pixlr (9)Merry Christmas everyone. :) Well I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I know in Europe today is also a holiday which I always found kind of nice, recuperating from all the holiday stuff, getting an extra day to just sleep and veg out. Oh well. It's back to work for me today but I am definitely dragging. Hopefully I'll perk up a little once I get there. A lot of people are off this week so the office should be quiet in some ways but also quite hectic in others as people are covering for the people who are off. Well, we shall see what happens. Either way it was nice to have my four day weekend even though it went by too quick. 

Friday I was home since Mike still had to work. I took care of some more wrapping and last minute prep, put on the winter bedset, wrote a letter, mostly a relaxing day. Then Saturday we slept in and went to the movies to see "Pitch Perfect 3". Good ending and nicely wrapped up storyline and everything actually came together pretty well. I wasn't too sure from the trailers but was happily surprised. Had lunch after the movies and in the evening I just vegged out on the couch with a big mug of tea and watched a Christmas movie (well not technically a Christmas movie but a movie themed around Christmas - "The Family Stone")

Sunday, Christmas Eve, we slept in and went to the movies again (pretty much the theme for the holiday weekend for us) Saw "The Shape of Water" and that was really amazing. Weirdly beautiful and just a neat, unique movie. Hung out at Rizzuto's for a bit before heading home and having food at home. Had some veggies & dip, shrimp cocktail, cheese & crackers. And caught up on some recorded shows. 

And yesterday, Christmas Day, was sort of a repeat of all that. In the morning we opened our gifts with Mike's sister, niece and nephew. We didn't go crazy with the gifts this year but everything I got was very nice and we had a nice relaxing morning. Then headed to the movies again, this time to see "Downsizing". It was a bit slow but definitely unique and different. Afterwards we stopped at Bambu before heading home and having more of our food at home. Some more recorded shows (we are actually pretty caught up now - the only thing we still haven't gotten to is "Stranger Things") before eventually heading to bed. 

And now here we are Tuesday morning and back to work. Oh, it also snowed unexpectedly Christmas Eve into Christmas Day so we woke up to a snowy Christmas morning. I am really not big into the snow as it causes way too many headaches and I am also paranoid/terrified of our driveway when there is snow and ice but I do have to say that it looked pretty at least for a little bit. It's going to be bitter cold for the next few days, definitely not looking forward to that. I am already looking forward to spring. :)  

Letter/Mail Update: Received a letter/owe a reply to: Nina/WA and Tiffany/OK. Letters have gone out or are going out today to: Celia/MA and Lotte/Denmark.
