The Twenty Third of December

It has been a very quiet day today but things will pick up tomorrow. The kids are partying with their dad's family tonight. I had a nap, ate chocolate, visited a senior's home and plain old relaxed. This is such a change for me but not unwelcome. I needed some easier time and I'm getting what I wished for.

I'm not into Christmas music but have a bit that could qualify. The Pogues, Fairytale of New York is a good example. It's not really a traditional Christmas song but is popular this time of year. Sarah MacLaughlan's version of Joni Mitchell's River will never match Joni's raw emotion but is worth a listen. It's good at any time of year but is more popular during the winter. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is the traditional and this version by Christine Aguilara is pretty nice.

Tomorrow the kids are here and are having friends in in the evening. It will be nice to have some noise.
