After several gloomy days, the sun shone on our Christmas breakfast, making the holiday bright indeed. To add to the joy, both sons and both daughters-in-law were here.
We had our traditional Christmas breakfast of croissants and sausages and ambrosia before adjourning to open presents. Once the presents were dealt with, we moved into preparing the Christmas feast -- more friends and family were joining us for that...
And it's all kind of a blur after that -- amazing food, lots of bubbly, and lots of good cheer. By 7:30, most of the guests had departed, the dishes were done, and three of the young uns had settled in for a spell of role-play gaming.
Willa and I were flat wore out but before I headed off to bed with an improving book, I just wanted to note that my very first blog post ( HERE) was on December 26, 2007. I seem to have been blogging for seven years -- and (almost) every day at that. Considering that I've never managed to journal for any length of time beyond a week or two, I find that amazing.
I suspect that it's because of the pictures. And the fact that I'll talk about most anything, no matter how trivial or silly.
And hope to continue to do so . . . many thanks to all of you who comment and keep me from feeling that I'm talking to myself.
