Merry Christmas, 2014. As Linus quoted from Luke chapter 2 in A Charlie Brown Christmas:
Quiet morning here so far...I'm up before everyone else as usual, enjoying the solitude of the early morning darkness...
...also enjoyed a Christmas cigar...remarkably similar to the Christmas Eve cigar I enjoyed yesterday, and the Two Days Before Christmas cigar I enjoyed the day before that...gotta love Arturo Fuente Short Stories.
In a few hours we'll exchange gifts, make Christmas brunch, and in general relax on this holy day.
It is in fact a wet Christmas...no rain changing to snow flurries, just cloudy and starting to get a little breezy...still very mild. Strange weather this year...snowiest November on record, followed by a mild December without any measurable snowfall at all so far, and only a week left in the year.
Big changes ahead in 2015, and for the first time in quite a few years, I'm actually getting excited about what's ahead at work.
But for now, my thoughts are centered on the birth of our Savior from whom comes the gift of eternal life.
Merry Christmas, mcm fans...
