Christmas 2005 is behind us, and its almost New Year's. I love this no-man's land between the two holidays. Its kind of a limbo time, still cleaning up after the craziness of Christmas Day, but not ready to take the decorations down just yet. Ro has the week off, and we've actually gone to the movie theater to see two films within four days! This is unheard of, we're most often cocooning with whatever dvd has arrived from our Blockbuster que. We of course were the last people on the planet to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and maybe the next to the last to see the new Pride and Prejudice. I'm wild about Harry, but ecstatic about P&P! Keira Knightley made a spectacular Lizzie, and it had some of the most breathtaking scenes from the English countryside I've ever seen. Fantastic.
As for Christmas, ours was a resounding success! Family, friends, food and fun, all the things that make life a banquet! Several people were snapping pics, but not me. If any decent snaps come my way, I'll share them here, or pop them into an album on flickr. Oh, and I'm especially over the moon about my present from Ro: new pots and pans! They are Calphalon tri-ply stainless and cook like a dream. Thanks, big guy!
Sorry I have no images in this post, if I stop to scrounge something I'll never get this post up!
