Everyone needs something to believe in, and I believe I’ll have another beer.

It’s been a long and wonderful day, and now I hope to get this post written and posted before I pass out from awesomeness. And whiskey.

The doors on the Lutheran church on my walk to work. I’ve taken lots of pictures of the Lutheran church this year, and this shot lined up nicely. Merry Holiday!

On my walk to dinner, the Christian Scientist church (yes, the library is surrounded by churches. and a funeral home). I really like this building, and it catches the light like whoa.

Not a very good picture of my favorite candleholder. I bought this with NinjaHusband so long ago… I don’t even remember where we were. Maybe 10 years ago or more? It’s frosted glass pieces inside a metal framework. So simple, so Japonese-ish, so awesome. I wish I had gotten a better picture than one with a flash, but what can you do in a low-light living room at night?

On Thursday we put up the lighted garland, with ornaments. Heart! We don’t put up a tree, but we do put up a bunch of lit-up garland and I hang my favorite ornaments — currently stars and snowflakes on one side of the room, and red/gold balls on the other side.

One angle on a snowbabies figurine given to me by the lovely and inestimable Peninah. Mwah, dahling. It’s my favorite holiday decoration.

This tag was on a pair of shoes I bought. I took the picture because it seemed so incredibly absurd.

One of the ornaments on the stair railing garland. Happy Holiday(s) of your choosing! I attended a birth this day and took this late at night, enjoying the twinkly lights after my nap.

I took this picture because the street looked pretty, and it was a nice parallel to the picture on October 28 in this post. Whee!

Tuesday night at work my computer got all hung up on something, so I pulled out my emergency knitting (stashed in the lower drawer on the right-hand side) and worked a few rows of garter stitch to take the edge off.

On Wednesday I wasn’t feeling well + the roads were full of snow + my car is a POS, so I stayed home. The heat turns itself down during the day, and the cat and I burrowed into blankets for some delicious naptime.

The day I finished most of my holiday cards.

My friend Joe, on his 30th birthday. I went into the city to see Joe and John, his twin brother, for their birthday, and ended up meeting an old high school friend as well. It was a kickass time and I wish I saw Joe more often. Happy birthday Joe and John!

Yay for Beth’s finished jacket! She finished sewing the ribbon-backed snaps on at knitting group, and it looks great on her. So pretty!
