Merry Christmas!  
I hope all of you who celebrate Christmas had a wonderful day!

Ours had both kids at home and an entire day of loafing, which was very nice. I'll probably hit a few post-Xmas sales tomorrow, picking up a gift for one of my sisters and some outdoor lights to store for when the current ones die. Maybe I'll write some Christmas cards? I haven't had those ready PRE-Christmas in years.

An outdoor bike ride is unlikely, as it has just been too cold here. It should warm up around Wednesday, which is when we're planning to drive to Oregon to see family. No sign of the snow and ice storms that wreaked such havoc a couple of weeks ago, which is good. *fingers crossed*

I had hoped to write some Yuletide treats before the Christmas deadline, but nothing even got started. :( Maybe next year?

How are your kids? :) I didn't do Christmas cards either.

I hope your Oregon travels go well :)

The kids are doing well. Our daughter is lazing around after a hard fall at college, and our son is doing much the same after a busy semester in high school that included what will be his one and only year playing water polo. ;)

I hope the trip is uneventful. The weather forecast for the two cities on either side of the mountain pass is above freezing and snow temps, so that's promising!

I hope it was a beautiful day in Bayern for you, with a lovely white snowfall making the world bright. :)

We've enjoyed our together time. 70 degrees here in Cincinnati! It won't last, but...

In Cincinnati? That's the Midwest-- you should be suffering more than we are. :0

Lucky you. :D It's been around 45-49o for us for days now, and the windchill for biking is just too much. Great for running, which I can't do right now since my plantar fasciitis is acting up again.

Sounds like you're having a wonderful time with the family!

there's always the chance for a post-yuletide yuletide-type fic.... :D

drive safe! hopefully the weather will cooperate. it's supposed to be in the 50s here tomorrow, which, what?

It's never the same, though, when it's post-Yuletide. Nobody seems to read it! Though not many seem to be reading my official story, either. :(

Band of Brothers has tempted me to try Nix/Winters fic, and there was an anthropomorfic story that BEEGED to be written. But thus far, nothing. :(

50 in Boston this time of year! That's about the same as our current temps, but pretty warm for you since that's a snow climate! Put on the shorts and go walking! :D
