Merry Christmas

I realize it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything. I was really tired with wrapping up the end of the semester with my students and then I got sick right as break started. Fun. There may have been some procrastination thrown in there somewhere, too. I’m bad about that.

It’s Christmas morning. My boys are both teenagers now and past the age of getting up at a ridiculous hour to see what is under the tree, so they are still asleep. I’m not generally an early morning person, but a medicine I am on has me not sleeping well. So, here I am sitting in the glow of the Christmas tree and the TETRIS light writing.

Christmas tree and TETRIS light

It’s been storming a lot this morning. It’s very strange to wake up to thunder and lightning on December 25th. It’s 65 degrees outside. We had tornado warnings a couple of days ago. I suppose that’s just the nature of middle Tennessee weather: weird. Glad we aren’t traveling today.

The boys, Mike, and I are just going stay home today, enjoying opening presents and one another’s company. Here in a bit, I’ll need to put the homemade cinnamon rolls in the oven to finish proofing, so that I can have them baked and ready to go when everyone is up and moving. At some point, I’m going to make lasagna. I hope that it is going to be a nice, relaxing, tasty day.

Well, it’s time to get the cinnamon rolls ready for one final rise. I know there’s not much going on for the blog today, but I wanted to at least check in and say hello. I’m still here. I hope you all have a wonderful day. If you are able to spend time with loved ones, I hope you enjoy lots of love and laughter.
