Merry Merry

Today is Christmas Eve. My favorite day. Everything is beautiful and ready for tomorrow. The cookies are all baked, and the dinner treats are waiting for the oven. I can sit by the tree with hot chocolate and peaceful Golden Retrievers. Well, one peaceful Golden Retriever. I think the girls could use a bit more time away from a sparkly tree and packages. The music is playing, and maybe just one glass of wine...

The traditions that we started more than thirty years ago when our first son was a baby continue. Even on the years when I think it's all just too much, they continue, because in the long run it's those traditions that make our Christmas so special. I hope with all my heart that Christmas is very Merry for all of you. We'll get back to our projects in a few days, but until then I hope you have a peaceful and happy holiday!


  1. Your Christmas decor is lovely! I happened upon your blog and have enjoyed reading some of your postings.
