Our fiber optic Christmas tree. The tips of some of the leaves change color as it runs.

I was not feeling much Christmas spirit this year until this past Friday. One of the people who goes to cardiac rehab the same time I do completed rehab on that day. So the mood there was quite good. That morning I got a phone call from a former coworker who moved out of state when she retired shortly after I retired. And I got a very nice Christmas letter email from a cherished old friend who lives in the east.

I’m making slow cooker beef vegetable soup for dinner tonight.
