The Seventh Day of Christmas and Sylvester
On the Seventh day of Christmas my true gave to me
Seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying,
Five gold rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
Yesterday a few tiny angels got their wings and are ready to fly to new homes, some leaving today, and some after the New Year holiday.
Today is a neighbor boy's birthday. We half adopted him when his single mother died, and Thom is celebrating with him. So - "Mom, would you wrap this gift?" Ooops. Mom has no gift wrap for a boy for a birthday, and no one wants his birthday just to be an extension of Christmas, so - time to get creative, and disguise the recycled paper.
Today is also Sylvester and the end of this year. For us it will have a fondue/raclette dinner with guests. Time to clean house and concoct a menu.
As the Swiss say: Guten Rutsch: We wish you a good slide into the New Year.
