What a great holiday it was! It starts at our house on Christmas Eve. I worked some, but it was pretty slow, so we could prep for dinner pretty easily.
Table set up:
My great grandmother’s service, which I now have.
John did his specialty – the sugared pecans.
AKA crack [...]
Saturday was girl’s day out!!!
One of my favorite winter events is Christmas in the Country. It is an open house tour where various rural artisans open up their houses to sell their wares. It comes with a map that is so not to scale that it is laughable.
The houses are all [...]
Hope you all had a most wonderful holiday!
We actually had a nice quiet Christmas as we did the big dinner on Christmas Eve, as has become the tradition over the last few years. Isn’t it funny how traditions just develop without thinking about them?
John and I did a lot of prepping and [...]
Thank you so much for listening to my guitar playing! I was a bit nervous putting it out there, but really – doing a video is so much easier than a live performance I will do a couple others next week.
How about just a random Christmas countdown for the day? It’s been a bit [...]
Well, here I sit taking a break from work on Sunday (back at the grind already). I can’t believe how fast the last couple of days went.
We had a wonderful holiday. Christmas eve and we had the spread set out. We had a little snack table before dinner with cheese and crackers (snow flake-shaped, [...]
Christmas Eve! This is the day I like the best because on Christmas it is all over. I love the festiveness and the lights and the feeling of anticipation on the eve.
One of my favorite things to do is late at night on Christmas eve is to turn on holiday music and sit [...]
The first real holiday weekend! Well, I only had Saturday off, but who’s counting?
On Saturday, my mother and I went to the Shirt Factory, which is a giant old building where they used to make shirts, oddly enough. It now houses artists and their studios, along with a few other businesses. It is [...]
Merry Christmas! What a wonderful day we had. John and I were up fairly early – 6:30 Poor John LOL! It was nice and quiet and we made a pot of coffee and opened our gifts to each other. This is probably the most unique thing I have ever gotten in my stocking:
It’s Christmas Eve! This is really my favorite day of the year. It’s the anticipation at its peak
I was up wayyyyy early today at 5:30 so I got up and worked for a while before heading to the gym. I had a Zone bar before and hit the treadmill for 5.5 miles! It [...]
Boy was there ever a windstorm last night into today. Gusts were up to 60 miles an hour! It wasn’t cold, but I certainly wasn’t in the mood to run outside. I sat around at home and ate a balance bar while I waited for my gym to open. Then I did 4 miles on [...]
