Merry Christmas, Everyone!  
I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had some good time with family and loved ones, or even just some time to yourselves to enjoy (that pile of Yuletide stories won't read itself).

Thank you so much to heliokleia and tuesdaeschild for the lovely v-gifts. *hugs them both* And on the flip side of things, Happy Birthday to scarlett_o and belated wishes to needtakehave! I hope both of you found some time to celebrate in between other festivities.

I made it to Christmas on time, where the family was concerned, and in addition to my official Yuletide story, I wrote an extra late last week (a night and afternoon of deep devotion for something I couldn't pass up) and a short little something on Christmas Eve. I'm even prouder of the middle one than my official story, and you will never guess what unexpected waters I waded into. Though if you do, I'll write you a ficlet of your choosing. There are only some 1700+ stories for Yuletide to choose from, though I'll offer a hint: it's technically fanfic, but not of a genre people usually write.

Looks like we won't be going to Oregon this year. HSH can't go, and this is an awful time of year to leave him by himself. Plus, the weather... one snowstorm after another in the Siskiyous, pretty unrelentingly. Ugh. You really want either rain or dry pavement going over the I-5 summit.

So, good Christmases? Good enough? I thought about several of you today, for whom this is a tough year, and I hope you weathered the day well. A New Year is coming, and I have faith that it will be a better one. ♥

Wow - grats on the writing so much! :)

Sorry about the not going to Oregon.

I hope you had a good Christmas! I did - it was kind of tiring though, and I had to work today, so I didn't get to recuperate really. We went to the in-laws and I mostly hung out and read The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and we ate a lot and we watched The Fall.

I'm sorry you had to work today! Your Christmas sounds nice, though, and The Fall is such a visually stunning and overall fascinating movie. We wound up restarting the beginning just because the imagery was so vivid, we felt as if we might already have missed something. Haven't done that since I was given a copy of "The Thin Blue Line" to review!

Glad you made it to Christmas on time...and you're welcome. *hugs back*

I had a nice Christmas, thank you, my friend.

Was it a snowy Christmas? We never get those in my current climate, but I suspect it's an open possibility where you are. Probably the one day of the year when everyone would enjoy fresh snow, too. :)

Happy Holidays, and much love today and every day. ♥

Ours was mostly a wet, mild Christmas. The South West of England is in the Gulf Stream and generally we don't have really cold weather; just rain. I do agree with you, however; I'm sure we'd both appreciate some lovely fresh snow on Christmas Day! :)

Thank you, my friend! Happy Holidays to you too (maybe just a tad late?!) and best wishes for 2013. ♥

A belated Very Merry to you and your family! Mine was uneventful, YAY, and quite pleasant.

That sounds perfect, really. Hope you and Lizbeth and the girls all had a great time!

Pleasure, my dear Mme Venus. So you've been very busy, hm? Glad that you'd make it, after all.
*high fives*

So enjoy the holidays, my dear friend and...
a Happy New Year!
*huggles* ♥

Thank you! I hope Krampus didn't come your way, or Knecht Ruprecht. Chocolate though? Always welcome in abundance! *hugs*

Is that a snowman rabbid? Where do you find these things!
