* Christmas Eve 2009

The candles are lit.  The champagne is chilled and uncorked.  The Christmas music is playing softly in the background.  My glass awaits it's liquid effervescents.  Cranberry/hazelnut thins, cognac pate, Italian black olives and gorgonzola cheese are set out on a beautiful china plate.  When I feel hungry I will nibble tonight.  Habibi has dined and is lying by my side.

There are some Christmas gifts to warp.  The linen table cloth for breakfast still has to be ironed.  I will enjoy doing that.

So, in my little world, all is well.  I have found when flying solo, it helps when I make an effort to make things nice for myself.  I adore lovely things, so why wouldn't I do it just for 'me'.  I most certainly would make the effort for a partner or a best friend, or a group of friends.  Therefore, I ask myself .... why not me?  Now, more often than not, I do make the effort for me.  I appreciate it.  Surrounding myself with lovely things helps me breath.  Every little bit helps.  Hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful, joyous Christmas Eve, no matter where you are or what you are doing.
