Because it’s 65 degrees and sunny I refuse to admit that Christmas is one week away. The stress of the holidays just does not exist for me this year. (This is also probably due to the fact that I’m not working my usual day job, and the fact that my book is off to the editor now, so this is a Very Special Christmas for me!) For the past six weeks, I’ve been walking around Pasadena and San Marino thinking, “isn’t that cute? They think it’s Christmas!”
I’m heading back to the ranch for a Colorado Christmas. More blogging once I’ve hit the chilly high country plains, where I plan to focus on the three R’s: Readin’, Relaxin’, and Reconnectin’ with friends. In the meantime, enjoy this view of Mission Bay in San Diego, which was taken by Notorious Ph.D,, Girl Scholar, on a very recent visit.
