Well, the Mistress is packed up and is heading to the ancestral family home for the Christmas holiday for merriment and festivities , where I'll see family and friends , but will mostly be enjoying much food and spirit. Where ever did the time go this year????? And I worry not for what Santa will bring.......I took care of that last week. Could the above really be true??????
Christmas Eve's with my family are very nice and are more quiet and dimly lit evenings with mostly candles and tree lights. My Aunt and Uncle always prepare a lovely Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding dinner, and will round out with some lovely egg nog and almond brittle. And then my mother and I will return to her house where we will listen to some carols and then watch A Christmas Carol . My favorite carol on Christmas Eve?....... by Ray Conniff Singers of course.
Look at that beautifully lit snow covered tree!!! Something so calming and quite, like their could be no wrong, or worry, or anything bad in the world...........
So I am off and will return over the weekend. In the meantime I would like offer my true gratitude to you all for stopping in over the year and leaving comments and making me laugh with some of them. As we gather this holiday season with family and loved ones, we reflect with gratitude on the past year, and look with hope to the future.
From the Casa and it's cast of characters to yours, I offer you a huge THANK YOU for stopping by, and wish you all an abundance of health and happiness, today and in the New Year.
A very Merry Christmas to you all!
