A little while after I walked home, Lisa came in with travelswithkuma, who she said was very impatient with us.
We reminded Bear that not all of these presents were for him. Some of them were from him.
After we opened Kuma's first present (a metal "Pure Local Honey" sign), Bear gave Lisa a present.
Lisa was very taken by Kuma Bear's very generous gift.
After Lisa recovered from her present, we opened the rest of them.
Bear sits in one of his presents (a box for holding all of his clothes) holding Lisa's new fish. From left to right, the other items are: a heat-operated fan you set on the wood stove to help circulate the heat; a jar of unscented ointment with no artificial dyes for Lisa's cold-ravaged elbows and feet; Kuma Bear's honey sign; Willow Bark ointment (good for sore muscles); socks for Lisa; a selection of jerky and smoked meats for Kevin.
No duck on offer this Christmas, as the local store ran out before we went to buy one, but we got a nice ham from Whole Foods Market that is now baking in the oven, as we prepare for our little holiday feast. Lisa says this is one of the nicest Christmases she can remember.
