We had a day of sloth yesterday, with books and games and movies and food to keep us amused.

Today we go over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house.

It is the Feast of Stephen, which you may recall from the carol “Good King Wenceslas.” This song, from the middle of the 19th century, tells of the good deeds and miraculously warm feet of the Duke of Bohemia. The sheet music
will come in handy for harmonies around the piano today.

I made quiche and almond pastry this morning, and #2 daughter and I (she may be writing about her adventures at the biochem plant last night at her xanga) held a business meeting to plan for the new year.

Off to do stuff!
