Green Christmas. We live in a very snowy, wintry region. It is unusual to have no snow for the December holidays. I am not crazy about dealing with digging out cars, icy streets and parking lots, frigid wind chills and all that. But I will admit to missing the white stuff on Christmas morning. It lends a certain ambiance. I am sure the Snow Gods will be making up for lost time soon though. Remind me in late January that I said I missed the stuff!
Squee!! Guess what I received for a wonderful Yule gift from my darling and delightful husband. A drum. Did you hear me? I said: A DRUM!! Yes, that is right! No more borrowing drums at drum circle, or practicing at home on a Folger's coffee container. A real, honest-to-Goddess djembe! A conspiracy that was afoot for two months, between my husband, son and our dear friend Mary Hudson at the Fey Dragon methaphysical shop. I had no clue, and was completely WOWED!! I will get a photo of it soon, but here's an image of a similar drum.
The drum is made from mango wood and has a very good sound. It will be a blast at the next drum circle, I'll tell ya!!
Am I lucky or what?!?!
