We are just back from visiting Pat’s folks for the holidays. In a wild burst the day before we left, the tree went up, the house got cleaned AND I got every present wrapped. Yes, I was exhausted, but to walk in the front door last night after 10 hours on the road with my family (and a delightful family sing along to The Clash at one point) knowing there were now 2 days to go and all I had to do was figure out what cookies to bake felt pretty darn tooting good.
I feel strongly that after eating cookies Grandma made all week, we could stand a cookie break. The other people that live in this house think otherwise though, as both of them have given a decent sized list of what they think we ‘need’ to get through Christmas. I’m not saying yes and I’m not saying no to any of them. We’ll just have to wait and see what I feel like doing.
Merry Christmas everyone.

What a wonderful tree! And the photograph is so atmospheric…festive and lovely!
(Wish I lived closer because I'm sure I'd love your catering. Your soups sound tremendously appealing.)
Have a splendid holiday!
