playoffs, washington folks, and take down
posted by soe 11:27 pm

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. NCAA volleyball championships are going on, which means whole nights of getting to watch my favorite sport. (The finals will be on ABC at 3 p.m. EST on Sunday, should you want to watch some top-notch athletes.)

2. We get a video chat with John, Nicole, and Juliet to hear about how their holidays are going and to see their menorah and their tree. And Rebs and I have a late-night talk, where we share darkened living room pictures of our trees.

3. When we need to start our game Wednesday evening, only three of us are in attendance. But Jasen, Chris, and I have played a lot of pickup together and take an early lead, which gives Katie time to get there to help us win the first set and then Sergio to help us take the third, beating the last undefeated team in our league.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?

We had some bad news yesterday here in the Burrow.

This song, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” from Meet Me in St. Louis expresses the mood here:

By tomorrow, I’ll have processed things and be better able to write something holidayish. See you then.
