The past couple of days have been lots of relaxing and slacking at home, playing the new Nintendo Wii and also PS2. We even had a chance to play old-time favorite Magic: the Gathering games. Makes me feel like picking it up again! Ugh, that money-leeching hobby.
The next day it was off to Alex‘s house just around the neighborhood and we had a good outdoor barbeque, American-styled, though not raging flames from the grill (since it was electric). That was on Christmas Day, and at night we went back and there was a big party with friends of the family. Mainly the seniors stuck to their old good-times stories, while the younger generation banded together to play games. The mood wasn’t specifically for Christmas, but honestly it was great down time.
