Christmas 2007

in Life, the Universe and Everything

And so it came to pass that she spent almost 48 hours without attaching herself to the computer. And lo, to her great surprise, it was good.

And while she was not clacking madly on the keyboard, she found that she had opportunities to play with her children, and read new books, and converse with her family, and eat – and eat – and eat. And lo, it was good.

And she did not read her Bloglines account, and she did not fret over the great numbers of unread posts piling up. And lo, it was good.

And she bathed in the warm glow of her baby niece’s smile, and laughed at the noisy antics of her boys and their adoring cousins, while trying only half successfully to have grownup conversations around their happy exhuberance. And lo, it was good.

And there were gifts, and there was family, and there was food, and there was love.

Christmas 2007

And lo, it was very, very good.

Merry Christmas. Sometimes those days without the blog but with the family just feel so, so good.

Is that your mom? In the upper right corner? With the dimples?

Lovely photos! And good for you for staying away from the blog… takes mighty restraint, especially when you’re home.
Enjoy the rest of the holidays!

Simon broke Kerry’s heart. Apparently, Padma is now his girlfriend! I can see you and yours had a merry Christmas.
