Of course, there was a lot of work thrown in as well.? But first thing this morning, I met one of our funders at Clifton Natural Foods – she’s been buying the refreshments for our gatherings, as part of her Strategic Partner support for us.? So we bought the treats for our last Board meeting of 2012.
And then, because she likes to explore CNF and had time, I did my regular and Christmas stuff shopping.? I was out of several supplements, and they had some of my favorite stuff on sale, so it ended up being a hefty spree.
At the other end of the day, my last meeting was in Norwood, so I slipped into Whole Foods, to get all the ingredients for making my Christmas bread, which is a smash hit with my friends and family.? And with everyone at meetings I attend during the bread spree, mid to late December.? I try to take the loaf warm, and have organic butter with me.? A healing, relaxing and ecstatic treat.
And now, after quite some time, I have just gotten everything put away.? Aaaaaahhhh.? I love everything about all these Christmasy holidays.? The getting ready, the doing, the cleanup afterwards – and then the wonderful re-run in my brain, enjoying every detail.
