The Day

I continue to make progress on the Christmas "chores" at hand. I want to put a few more decorations on the tree, and the ribbon for garland and then it will be done.

I've been working on my Christmas letter. (Yes, I'm one of those people who writes the dreaded/beloved Christmas letter. If you don't want to read it, just throw it away. I'll be none the wiser.) Because I'm not hosting a holiday party this year I'll not mail nearly as many items as usual. And I have no sense of urgency about getting the invites in the mail.

These days I'm still moving rather slowly, so it's taking me awhile to do everything. I wrap a present or two, put a few decorations on, and then I'm ready to rest. At this rate it will be a wonder if I'm done before Christmas.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy, busy day so I must get some rest. Unfortunately, one of my favorite Star Trek The Next Generation shows is play - the Traveller, for those of you who are fans. I have a toy of the Traveller on my desk at work. I used to keep one of Picard and the Traveller on my desk. Picard to remind me of what leadership should look like and the Traveller to remind me things aren't always what they seem.

Regardless of my love of Trek, I must sleep.
