On the eleventh day of Christmas, daughter and I went shopping and I bought myself a pair of ankle boots, redeemed a gift certificate for a box of chocolates (with our favorite marzipan filling!) and bought some yummy cinnamon buns! Then, we took a short nap to recover from all that shopping. Later, I watered the front garden, took the trash cans to the curb, and ran the dish washer.
On the twelfth day of Christmas, I returned to the office after being off since Christmas! Daughter went out to dinner with two of her neighborhood friends who came over to exchange gifts and I took down the holiday decorations. It probably took no more than 10 seconds! What a change from other years!
And so, Christmas is finally come to an end. It's been a lovely 12 days of holidays for me. Hope it was a good holiday season for you, too.
