Last night we purchased and trimmed our Christmas tree and drank eggnog and listened to Christmas records. It has been wonderful to be able to bask in all of the free time that I now have. I’m more relaxed than I’ve been in a while. I predict I’ll be bored of it by Monday, but so far it has been quite luxurious.
Tonight we are having a few friends over for games and I’m cooking a Hanukkah dinner. A brisket is in the oven and latkes and green beans will follow. I always love getting to share my Jewish traditions with people, even though none of tonight’s guests are Jewish. Happy Hanukkah!
