    She's funny!
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    And this:

    I guess the takeaway is, that if you have family, whatever they want to do is okay. As someone who doesn't, all it is is painful.

    I just saw that for the first time yesterday, Oak, after seeing Neil Gaimans post on Twitter. I know what you're saying.
    If I were on your continent, I'd invite you and all of my other favourite Christmas Grinches to go out for a bike ride in the snow, and then go for drinks someplace noisy and unsentimental. Here's a virtual toast to you all. You're some of my favourite people I've never met, the sun has turned and we're moving towards summer. We'll be fine.

    Oak,
    I could have used that as my theme song this weekend. I took my 85 tear old MIL to mass on Saturday. As I sat and listen to the service, I thought, the music is nice, but the lyrics are a little dodgey.....I followed it up by wishing my husbands family a Happy Solstice the next day

    They love me anyway.....

    We normally run away at Christmas and our tradition is to summit something on Christmas day. WAY too many years of family dysfunction on both sides as brought to this. It works. This year I am stuck at home recovering with the foot. Bit of a bummer......

    I agree with lph.....you are some of the coolest women I have never met. I raise my cup of tea to all of you!

    My favorite thing about Christmas is the day off work and the nightmare daily commute is a little more bearable.

    We are Christians, but we don't decorate or exchange gifts or go to church for Christmas. I do enjoy hearing how all faiths celebrate, regardless of the date and what they celebrate.

    Is that the Albion River Inn? Highly recommend the restaurant there. When we first moved to the Bay Area it was a tradition for us to drive up to Mendocino for the day on our anniversary. We did that for three or four years. It was a LONG drive from the south bay, but so beautiful. I had just finished school and we were so poor, we couldn't afford to spend the night and then we were saving for a house.

    Veronica…it’s a house. It’s even a longer drive for us but we break the drive with an overnight in the napa valley, then a relaxing drive on 128 to here. Lots of good restaurants here including the Albion….great sense of nature and good people too. Happy holidays for you!!!!

    pictures like that makes me miss California. I loved Point Reys area. There was a fun century ride event that I went and I was so taken by the beauty of the place.

    And yes to all the wonderful women here. And to LPH Glade Jul even if you are a grinch. I was going to fry up some fattigan for my Norwegian neighbor. He is temporarly in a care facility right now. And even though he loves sweets, he told me in no uncertain terms to not bring him ANYTHING. Grinch. Maybe I should ask him if he wants to eat Rudolph for dinner. Reindeer burger or steak... My co-worker returning from Tampere Finland said, "Rudolph was very lean and very tasty!!"

    anyway to all of you, enjoy your holiday.
