Saturday Teeter, Chick and I were elves at Santa's Workshop at the Magic Castle. We tray passed milk and cookies, helped kids stuff bears & bunnies and decorate wooden cars & trucks, and hung out with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Don't be surprised if you see a Christmas card that looks a lot like this in your mailbox this year...
And do you see those hot elf shoes Teeter's sporting? I had a first date later that night & on a dare from Chick, totally rocked those shoes to the coffee shop. Oh yeah. Luckily, I think he found it more funny than weird... :)
Meanwhile, my new house underwent a transformation! The landlord finally pulled up our nasty 20-year old carpet so now we have wood floors upstairs in the living room!! She's not refinishing them until we move out (fair enough) so they're very stained and scratched, but it still looks two billion times better than the carpet did. We have a Christmas tree, too, and the TV's been mounted above the fireplace (instead of in front of it), and all these lovely new elements make for a house that really looks like a welcoming home instead of a dirty frat pad.

It's been quite a lovely weekend. How was yours?
Today I am so grateful & happy for:
~ Christmas decorating
~ clarity & calm
~ french press coffee
