It is positively balmy outside.

I mean, I've heard the term before, but it was the first time I've ever been walking outside and the word "balmy" popped into my head to describe the night. I was getting the laundry out of the dryer, and it is just a lovely night. I'm tempted to find a project (or a book and a drink) and go outside and sit by the door, just to enjoy it. No one's out there to see my pjs (which are nice, anyway; my daddy got them for me after Christmas when they went on sale because I liked SherĂ­'s so much, and they are white with red cardinals and flowers and soft blue spots on them; Ems calls them my "chicken jammies") and it's nicer outside than in right now. Mmmmm...

In other news, we got a package from Bridget and Emma's "Auntie" Yvette today, with some late Christmas presents (which they loved.) Emma is thrilled that the Spot stuffed toy matches the Spot books... If you're reading this, thank you, Auntie Yvette! We'll send a note soon.

How nice to still be getting Christmas presents! That works well too because it's probably appreciated more without having all the other presents at the same! :D

Sounds like a beautiful evening! We had one of those the other night. Hubby had to work late, so Lancelot and I enjoyed taking a walk in the moonlight. I carried him in his sling. He loved it. Balmy evenings are great for soothing fussy babies!
