It’s been a pretty busy Christmas holiday – we went to The Northshore for the main event. My husband, the dog, and I stayed in a little family house in Abita Springs with my dad and his dog. The weather was bizarre: freezing when we got there and in the 80s by the time we left. We had the requisite raw oysters, gumbo, pralines, and po boys. I only objected to one thing: the candy cane shaped kings cake. That is – well, if not a travesty – overkill. Are we going to now have kings cake all year around? Can’t anything be seasonal? Can’t we WAIT until January 6th?
I blame it on Peeps.
My Christmas gift card books were a hit. I also managed to slap together a calendar for my Mom and Dad that includes some of my other collages. I will fine tune it later. I was able to have it delivered just in time to my sister’s house – cool! I also instigated a little project for Christmas Eve and Day. I brought along one of my blank Goose Game boards and a set of Sharpie markers and urged everyone to draw little pictures in the squares. I plan on finishing it up and sending copies to the family later.
When we got back, we had a raclette party over at my in-laws house for a late Christmas. I’ve been shopping for a new agenda (I think I have decided against a DIY one – too much process that could be used on other art). I have mostly been taking it easy, but there are some things on my “to do” list that I will need to get done between today and Monday.
What else? Oh, I finished New Moon. Whatever.
