|The most wonderful time of the year

Running around the house getting ready to celebrate Christmas. Tonight will be Beef Wellington with bacon-roasted potatoes and asparagus. Tomorrow morning we go to the Meyers' to enjoy Christmas morning with them. In the afternoon, another viewing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.|
And then the next day I begin my *second* favorite time of year: I put my family on airplanes and get the house all to myself for several days! I am in need of serious aloneness, snugged down in my house with my puppy, my books, my craft room, and no need to talk to anyone for at least three days.
I don't need this very often; I love my family and love having them around me. But once in a while my introvert batteries rejoice in being left completely alone. I always think that I'll watch movies and such. I usually don't turn on the TV at all, reading and sewing. And just thinking.
By the time they come back I will be thrilled to see them. But for that few days, I will be basking in privacy.
