I didn't take many photos on Christmas day...
...but I can say that I felt a bit less like a reflection of my former self.
and there were presents (always a plus)
even the dog got her share.
( I did make it, later in the day, to my mother's house for the crazy chaos that is my family's Christmas celebration. There was catching up with old friends, and congratulations on my nephew's engagement, plus remote control tanks and helicopters, and thanks to my funny and generous brother, the gift of a camera for my daughter, the receiving of which involved an elaborate re-enactment of an old German spy movie, complete with script and costumes. Glad I didn't miss that ;)
I'm exhausted, but grateful.
