Madeline’s and Liam’s gifts

Madeline’s and Liam’s gifts are wrapped. I hate wrapping presents. No Christmas Eve shopping this year. I am ahead of schedule. I ended up at Target in Roseville. I was extraordinarily calm and serene. I had both children’s Christmas listings. The Playstations, iPods, digital cameras and so on–ha. But it is done.

All except the Christmas letter to Dorothea. Yikes.

The Solstice party here went off. It rained. That is first. Some familiar faces and some new ones. Pretty traditional. Yuna got a ride to the train station. People just don’t get dropped off at the train station that often in the United States.
