Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas

Just hopped on here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and some seriously Happy Holidays.

Remember that statue I was carving? I was finally able to bring him home the other day. So much for me sticking him under the maple tree so he can grow moss. I put him in the foyer and dressed him up. I can see this becoming a year long thing.

My teacher told me I need to name him. Still need to do that.

Both Christmas Eve and Christmas day husband had work and J had school. Sort takes the gumption out of the holidays. But we still managed to do a present day, and tomorrow I'll roast a turkey and make some fixings. We'll even have a friend in from Tokyo.

But today I was feeling a bit blue when all of the sudden the doorbell rang. It was the guy here to change some meter outside. Electricity went out for about thirty minutes. I couldn't use the computer because the modem was off. Blue, blue, blue.

And then...

The guy came to the door to tell me they were done. He was holding a copper wire and a pair of needle-nose pliers. What the? He goes, Here this is for you. And proceeded to bend and twist.

And he made me this:

A dragonfly.

And that made everything alright.
