Today I made my final attempts to flood my heart with holiday spirit.
My daughter visited my office on my lunch break and played some impromptu carols with my office mate, George, and I really think they should rehearse and take the show on the road, at least to local nursing homes.
Euphonium meets Accordion… Silent Night
Then the teen even had a little accordion lesson thanks to George’s good naturedness.
Later we picked up the teen’s boyfriend and went to the Winter Lights Spectacular at Lehigh Valley Zoo. We gambled for candy (and lost).
We played a giant game of chess.
And we exchanged some small presents. (All of which have been eaten.)
Then we stopped at Sonic, another source of nostalgia for the teen and came home.
She never was very good at standing still.
