It really felt like not enough got done this Christmas, nor done at the right times,
but when you get right down to it, there was some decorating happening, and lights lit up . . .
there were some stockings hung . . .
and a couple or three little collections got out of their boxes . . .
and the Egyptian cat on top of the hall closet got her bell and ribbon.
Some of us made some cookies.
And we crafted some steampunkish crafts.
And we made our version of Christmas crackers.
We ate a lot and we sang a lot and we went to church
and we greatly enjoyed the company of friends and relations.
That seems like the right things accomplished then.
