A Happy, Christmasy Day! ๐ŸŽ„

Good morning once again, everyone! Yesterday was a pretty good day. First of all, I wanted to begin sharing some of my Christmas decorating –at least the tree!

I got the Big Bird ornament at a garage sale. It’s one of my favorites. Here’s the tree rotating. I’m so used to rotating bases now, I don’t think I’d ever want a stationary tree ever again!

Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby. Got a little gift for my mom in law and a lava lamp on sale!

It’s still melting for the first time (needs about six to eight hours to move normally) but here is a video of it moving, just a little bit:

Our elves moved! They looked adorable in the stocking, but they moved just a few feet. I’m worried about them, I don’t think they are feeling very well.

Since cinnamon perks them up when they’ve been touched by humans and can’t move (and they’ve raided our cinnamon for non-medical reasons in past years) I got them some cinnamon Altoids with the hope that this will give them some energy:

The most exciting thing about yesterday was… a chicken! By the way, how long does it take to know if you’re getting salmonella poisoning? Just kidding.

This was my first time roasting a whole chicken. I was sure that it would be a disaster, I merely wanted to get the disaster out of the way so next time could be better. I did NOT expect that my first roasted whole chicken would be one of the best I ever had!

It looked great, to boot. It was crispy, it was juicy. It smelled delightful. My beloved husband came home to a clean house, decorated for Christmas, with roast chicken in the oven filling the air with the most lovely smell, and Christmas music playing. It’s so nice to not feel like I fail at the whole wife thing once in a while! ๐Ÿ˜

Other than that, I didn’t game or draw yesterday… oops. But it felt like a very fruitful day. I’m waiting for gifts to arrive today and other orders to be confirmed. That has me a tad anxious, especially with one item from Japan that I know will probably not arrive on time.

And I fiddled some more with the wishlist that I’m not showing anyone. Lol. This is the year I’ve had the most games or gaming related things on my list. And weeb things. Lots of weeb crap, including the impossible Umaru Nendoroid, which gets more expensive and more bootlegged with every passing year. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

I think that’s all I’ve got for you for now. Last night I woke up with a dead leg again. I’m starting to get used to it which probably isn’t great. I have to look into it. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Anyway it’s time to shower. Whoever you are, wherever you are, I hope you have a happy, safe, stress-free Thursday!
