Happy Christmas!Posted: December 25, 2012
Merry Christmas! For those not celebrating Christmas, Merry Day!
It’s a cloudy day here in the Bogs. We’re awaiting the big snowstorm that is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. In the meantime, the first of the snowpeople has appeared here at Breezy Acres. I’m sure there will be more to come. Maybe even some snow-animals or other snow-creatures.
The surface of the pond is now solid enough to hold the light dusting of snow we had yesterday. Neuron-shapes are forming in the ice.
For those of you celebrating Christmas with gifts and toys, was Santa good to you this year?
Santa brought me the one thing I asked for this year: a new yoga mat. My old mat was falling to pieces. I was delighted to find a brand new one under the tree this morning. That Santa is a good guy. Actually, he’s a great guy. He not only brought me what I asked for, he surprised me with something I didn’t request (but not-so-secretly wanted). It’s a whole lot of fun in a small package.
Santa brought me a new camera! Not the big purchase I dream about, of course. This was even better. It’s a small, waterproof, sandproof, dustproof, freezeproof, shockproof camera (advertised as “The Weekend Proof Outdoor Adventure Camera”). How cool is that? A new toy to play with, AND I can take it to the beach or cross-country skiing or even swimming in the pond.
In addition to being able to take it underwater, the camera does this super cool panoramic thing. I can do panoramics on my regular camera, but I have to line up the shots. With the Panasonic I just press and hold the button while moving the camera around.
The quality of the images is not as good as my usual camera, but that’s not the point of having this little point-and-shoot. The point is pure, unadulterated FUN.
Santa outdid himself this year. I would have been quite happy and grateful for the yoga mat. I took care of Santa, too. He did not go away empty handed. I gave him the pizza stone he’s been wanting. I suspect there is a homemade pizza in my near future.
It’s funny how downsizing our Christmas (in terms of gifts) has made it all the richer.
That’s it from the Bogs on this gray and cloudy Christmas day. I hope your day was as rich as mine, filled with love and laughter and pure fun.
Be good, be kind, be loving, just Be. 🙂
