This is being a perfect Christmas so far! Lots of beauty, lots of friends, lots of giving and receiving. Making and baking bread, having a good time with Brian and Patrick Keegan and Kyle.
And, of all things, catching up on yard work! In the middle of the afternoon, several days in a row, I’ve been raking leaves – which just didn’t manage to get done this fall. Today, I brought in the last of the lawn furniture, wrapped up the hoses, and brought in the sprinkler. All on a beautiful sunny Christmas day.
And then I laid down on the couch and read this year’s chosen Christmas mystery.
After the busyness of getting ready for Christmas Eve at my sister’s, in the midst of all the breakfasts, lunches, dinners and gatherings – I have loved for the last several years just having a quiet Big Day all by myself, with all the lights on, Christmas music, and fresh warm bread.
Back into the busyness and fun tomorrow. For now, I’m going to go finish that mystery!
