A Warm and Lovely Weekend

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

There was a quiet morning of opening thoughtful gifts; a spectacular Christmas morning sunrise and a lazy day of lounging and cooking. As the sun set, we sat for a 14 course Indian Feast, prepared by me...May I say? It was delicious. We had sleepover guests, so the loveliness spilled onto Boxing Day. Vegan waffles and fresh from California tangerines for breakfast and leftovers with hot samosas for lunch. We painted and played music and jacks. We read books and dreamed of cool names for our food cart. All of this was followed by a long winter's nap. Husbandly had to return to the grind, but I am basking in the glow of a lovely, lovely weekend. My heart is full of love and gratitude for the sweet life we have forged together.

A gray, blustery day sways outside the windows, but Merry The Wonder Beagle and I are basking in the glow of all of the love and joy that spilled out into our home these blessed days. I hope your heart glows like mine today.

Long Silences Means Full Life

So many details fill my days. Singing, planning, drawing, painting, sewing, what a wonderful time to pass this time of ours. I have a little holiday time for nesting and decorating and putting the finishing touches on our handmade portion of the holidays. So much to be thankful for this season. We have health and love and even a little sunshine. Who says climate change is a bad thing...?

The Christmas Tree Stand is a recent acquisition. $20 at our favorite vintage store. We love it so much, we kind of habitually tilt our neck downward to enjoy its beauty. The slippers are shoes for pre-schoolers stitched by 14 year olds, cute, no?
