1.  What's your weather on a Christmas scale?  White Christmas (cold)?  Disney Christmas  (Florida winter)?  Caribbean Christmas (Barbados winter)?

2.  Do you have any preparations left before Christmas?  If so, what's the preparation you're most looking forward to?  The least?

3.  What thing did you do for yourself today that you're glad you took the time for?

1.  Today was a Disney Christmas day.  At 5am, the temp was 69 degrees, and while it was rainy and overcast, it was warm.  I have almost every window open (still) and I spent most of the day in shorts and flip flops.  (I dressed up for dinner; son and DIL took me out for my birthday dinner to the local Japanese hibachi grill).

2. I still need to wrap gifts, but I usually do that on Christmas Eve.  I still have some cookies to bake--that's pretty much the one thing I'm really looking forward to.   I have to make a batch of Chcolate Chip (without chips) cookies, which are my least favorite, but I also have Russian tea cakes and thumbprint cookies to make.  I still need to send Christmas cards.  That's my least favorite item left on the to-do list.

3. Getting up early (before dawn), making a nice pot of coffee and reading out on the patio before the rain hit.  It was a very nice, relaxing start to the day.  I'm glad I made time for it.
