Jessie, at work and listening to, talks to herself:

Jessamyn says: Man, this version of Winter Wonderland is AWFUL
Jessamyn says: It's Charlotte Church
Jessamyn says: Have you heard her sing before?
Jessamyn says: She sounds a little bit like if Julia Child were to start singing
Jessamyn says: Well, if she weren't dead, I mean
Jessamyn says: It has a muppet-esque quality to it
Jessamyn says: her voice, that is
Jessamyn says: like it couldn't possibly be someone taking themselves SERIOUSLY
Jessamyn says: does she always sound like this?
Jessamyn says: "gone awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayayayayay is the bluebird..."
Jessamyn says: "here to stayayayayayayay is the new bird..."

Mirror Pepper

Mirror Pepper

Last Saturday Katie and I had a delicious breakfast in the delightful company of Amy (Hi, Amy!). Afterward, we went home so Katie could take a nap (her second of the day). While she was sleeping, Geoff went out to buy our Christmas tree.

We put up the tree that day. On Sunday night we strung lights on the tree (and five or six ornaments). On Monday night we put almost all of the remaining ornaments, including this green mirrored pepper.

And then we could relax, because after all, what tree is not made complete by the addition of a green mirrored pepper ornament?

Every morning this week, the first thing I do is go out to the living room to plug in the lights on the Christmas tree. I love Christmas.

The other morning while I was in Katie's room taking pictures, she spied a cat in the doorway and excitedly announced its presence.

This isn't a great picture, but it was a nice moment.
