Ready for Top Chef!
Twas the night before Christmas, the house was all clean.
All the parties were over, or was that just a dream?
The company’s gone, and we laughed up a riot,
But right now I am happy that things are quite quiet.
We put up the trees and the lights, and we shopped.
I cooked lots of meals for our friends, ‘til I dropped.
I came down with the annual “holiday cold;”
Now I just want to lay by the fire and fold.
Over 700 cookies were baked, and enjoyed,
Most of the gifts exchanged, wrappings destroyed.
Tonight we’ll have lobster and crabcakes to eat.
And maybe some cream cheese pie for a sweet.
It’s just Brad and I now, and we’re thinking, indeed,
The next couple days’ nap times are just what we need.
A nice drink by the hearth in a candlelight glow,
Cuddled up close, even though there’s no snow.
It’s been quite a season of Christmas crazed stuff.
I think I need to learn when enough is enough!
We love private time in our tree-decked-out home,
But we’re planning next year to spend Christmas in Rome!
Buon Natale to all!
