Holiday wishes

Today has been a bit of slow holiday/travel prep -- baking, laundry, cleaning the house, a last-minute shopping trip (I'm getting on a plane Tuesday and remembered whilst in the shower this morning that I hadn't yet replaced my broken travel headphones), wrapping a few gifts. My uncle who lives in Sacramento is hosting the family Christmas dinner tomorrow. Then on Tuesday we leave for a week in Hawaii!! :D After over twenty years together, two of my dearest friends are getting married on Kauai, and we'll be there through January 2nd. This will be the first time in many, many years that I will be out of town on New Year's Eve, but fortunately most of the people I'd be most likely to spend the holiday with will be in Hawaii with me. I'm looking forward to a bit of vacation, and seeing Kauai for the first time.

Happy Christmas Eve to all that celebrate, and Happy Hanukkah for those of you who celebrate, and Happy Saturday to all! The solstice is past, and so the days are already getting longer in this hemisphere, and very soon this year will be over, and I think the end of 2016 is something we can all be happy about, no matter how uncertain the future might seem.
