1. Do a random act of kindness
|This was way more exciting than I expected. I felt so sneaky!|
I also let J slide on a few November chores. That counts too, right?
2. Put up the Christmas decorations
|We didn't really do mistletoe while I was growing up...it's now my favorite Christmas decoration!|
|In the kitchen this year to keep Maus from tipping it over...|
In the midst of end-of-semester stress, J and I put on some Christmas music and decorated our Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I crocheted. He read. We snuggled. It was nice.
Visit a Christkindlmarkt Take a winter walk
We had to have a sense of humor about this one. I found a German Christkindlmarkt run by a little German school in our neighborhood (I know...coolest thing ever.). But when we got there, it felt more like a PTA meeting with bratwurst. We awkwardly wandered away and counted it as a lovely winter walk. If anyone has suggestions for outdoor winter market, or seasonal grocery stores, I would love to visit some cozy Boston locales!
4. Watch a
Christmas Thanksgiving movie
I just can't resist John Candy for a little heartwarming. We'll be revisiting this activity though. J has never seen Love Actually or Home Alone 2, so we have some watching to do...
5. Snuggle with Maus
Ok, we do this a lot anyway. But Maus has been a needy little lady since we abandoned her during Thanksgiving (ha). So I wanted to devote some focused time to snuggling and kitty loving.
Unfortunately, she was too full of energy for snuggling. So we did one of her other favorite activities instead...
