Tom and I cuddled up for a quiet (aka perfect) Christmas. I yet again achieved good girlfriend status by giving him motorcycle tires - even though I hate his fricking motorcycle! He worked me over, convincing me that new tires and a great helmet are a motorcyclist's most important safety equipment. I know it a load of crap; look up oxymoron in the dictionary and you'll find the term "motorcycle safety." Oh well, I gave him what he wanted. As a big surprise, I also got him a new GPS since his is as finicky as an old cat.
Santa Tom was very good to me, too. After much consternation and indecision, Tom found the perfect real pearl and diamond earrings. Classic and beautiful, they make me look good even with messy hair and no makeup. I love them... love him, too.
After opening presents and eating Tom's traditional pancake and bacon breakfast, we headed to the movies to see "Girl with a Dragon Tattoo." I fell asleep for much of the first 30 minutes and was then lost for much of the rest of the movie. But it was fun anyway. We then went home and I made a delicious ham dinner topped off by a homemade apple pie that was to die for. My secret weapon: I use two different kinds of baking apples. Makes all the difference in the world.
I hope you had a lovely day and that you'll get most of this coming week off. While I'm not working, I'm going to work on the Carnation Pink/Aquamarine pattern so I can get it to the test knitters who are reading and raring to go. However you spend this week, I wish you unending comfort and joy.
