Ten days left until Christmas. It’s funny how years and years ago, I counted the days until Christmas dating back to somewhere around mid-October. Now Christmas just sort of sneaks up on me.
Most of the Christmas shopping has been taken care of. Elise and I collaborated on the annual newsletter and finished it last night. The season has caused work to slow down a bit so I have a little breathing room.
I left work early this afternoon to pick Elise up from her office. We had a quick dinner at El Arroyo. After dinner we parked off of Guadalupe and then walked up and down 37th Street to see all of the houses decorated with Christmas lights – a very cool, very Austin experience for the holiday season.
