Starting this afternoon, I'll be off work for the next two weeks. (Them's the benefits of working in education!) What this means for me is that I have two glorious weeks to finish up projects, start new ones, recharge my batteries, make plans for the new year, etc. What this means for C&CC, dear friends, is a not-so-regular schedule of posts. I hope to be around, but it won't be as often. There also won't be any obsessed. or Nerd News posts. (I know, boo on me. But if you do run across anything NN-worthy, please send it my way?)
I hope you and yours have an absolutely wonderful Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate), filled with family, friends, food and fun!
I know you're possibly wondering when the "soon" is that I'll be sharing pictures of the new place. (I've been wondering about it, too.) We're still working on a couple of the rooms, and I hope to spend time on them over the Christmas holiday. So expect a house tour ... sometime after the start of the new year.
To tide you over, here are a few shots of the Christmas decor we've put up (in which you'll see little glimpses of the everyday decor).
(Thanks for this one goes to our friends Emily and Wes!)
I've long been a fan of this ballet—I even saw it once in Lincoln Center as performed by the New York City Ballet—and this was a lovely performance. The Nutcracker is one of those things that's just so quintessentially Christmas that I always feel so much more festive and in the spirit once I've seen it (regardless if it's live or on TV).
