It is a white, frosty Saturday morning here, and my whole brood is snug inside and all is right in the Lemony Renee' world . . .
The puppy is dragging around his toy rubber chicken; a Christmas gift. He is systematically chewing the toes off and having so much fun doing it. A little ghoulish, but he's happy.
Lester is sitting here on my monitor, all puffed up and content. I love this little bird; she brings me peaceful companionship and all she asks in return is that I let her sit on my head every now and then.
And my husband and my son are where I left them last night . . . on the floor of the family room, sleeping bags spread out in front of the fire . . . this is their version of winter camping. They cook convenience foods over the open fire of the fireplace and do decidedly "guy things" all evening, night, and the next morning. Last night, I believe there was a late-night sledding adventure, a nature walk, and home to another log on the fire and a first lesson in poker. Ten hours later, the poker continues (I suspect they slept at some point, but I can't be sure) and my son just came streaking through here proclaiming that he just got a straight . . . hair still all askew and wearing his "happy camper" t-shirt, he was quite a sight.
These are the best of days.
I think I'll pour another cup of coffee and have a bit of that banana bread for breakfast.
I wish you a contented Saturday . . .
