I got more lovely holiday from my dear friends lindahoyland, spikesgirl58, xina_g, ragnarok_08, lijahlover and veganhothead thank you all sooo much! Each one was like a warm hug on a cold day. ^-^
I've been okay but we ran out of data until today :s I didn't have much to say on my end anyway but I've missed you guys very much and will spend the next few days getting caught up (again!!) around here ♥ Can't wait to see how all your holidays went :) For us the 25th is just a day when everything is closed but we did buy some beautiful steaks from the butcher the day before and that was our meal on Christmas day--and it might become a new tradition. ;) Didn't bust my butt to make it, either, just made a huge pan of french fries and some brown gravy, heh.
My brother's (awesome) girlfriend has been away in her home country for over a month now (family emergency, not a pleasure visit) and we all miss her so much :\ but I spoke with Mom and we agreed that she should leave all her holiday decorations up until she's back and done her two-week quarantine and then we're going to have a big traditional turkey dinner there (they don't make turkey where she's from and she seemed excited for it so we're definitely doing that instead of meat pies, which was choice #2). I know my bro is missing her like crazy and you know what? I do, too ♥ She's one of those people you meet and feel comfortable with right away, like an old friend. I think she'll be back mid January. :)
Okay that's all I've got for now ♥
