11th Day of Christmas

"On the eleventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree."

So, I'm not sure about the pipers, the lords, the ladies, the maids, and the swans; we DO have ducks a' laying (still 100% egg production...!).

We have one golden ring to celebrate:
Daughter Claire is engaged! This is exciting. No date, no venue to date. We just told them...let us know when and where, and we'll be there! (I hope it will be this easy.)

As for the calling birds, (I always thought they were Cawley Birds?? Somebody check on that for me.), and the French hens, we have none.

The two turtle doves? May we please switch out our pair of peacocks? It has come to light this month that we do indeed have a peacock AND a peahen. And in the words of Martha Stewart, my domestic hero, "And that's a GOOD thing."

The partridge in a pear tree. Hmmm. How about the tufted titmouse that beckons each morning at my front porch? Yes! That works.

Tomorrow is our Twelfth Day of Christmas. And then, Epiphany.
You all can look that one up, either in the Bible or on Wikipedia.
