I haven’t been posting much the last few days, but that’s because I’ve been having Holiday Fun, which mainly involves meeting with friends, then eating and drinking too much.
Plus of course there’s all the maintenance I needed to do around the house when I was traveling, and now need to do now that I’m back.
And then there was the Annual Holiday Plumbing Emergency, in which I have to try to get a plumber to turn up in the holiday season when they all have many better things to do. (This happens every year.) But lo! a highly trained technician from PCH turned up within 24 hours, fixed the problem in jig time, and only charged $75. (As a result, I highly recommend PCH to anyone within easy driving distance of Peralta, NM.)
All of which is perhaps an overly roundabout way of wishing you all a good holiday season. If you’re New Mexican, I wish you the tastiest of tamales and posole, and the brightest of luminarias. If you’re from Minnesota, I wish you the blandest possible lutefisk and the sweetest of dessert lefse. And if you’re from a different holiday tradition, I wish you all success in implementing that particular tradition, whatever it may be.
Though if it doesn’t involve tamales and posole and setting fire to things, I’m just a little bit sorry for you.
