I'm happy to report that I'm feeling much more like myself today. I'm still dealing with some symptoms and have almost no energy, but my mind is a lot clearer and I'm not fighting the urge to fall asleep every five minutes.
Still, between the whole no energy thing and the usual Christmas Eve busyness I didn't do much in the way of photography. So, after I arrived at my parents place this afternoon, I decided to go with Mom's suggestion and share a bit of holiday cheer. This is a photo of her fairly large collection of Byers' Choice Christmas carolers; rather than find a place to fit a folding table, she instead cleans out the fireplace and sets them up there:
My best wishes to everyone reading this—however you choose to spend your holiday, I hope it's everything you want it to be.
