I’m writing from my favorite seat in the house. It’s been snowing for the past several hours but the sun has since come out and all evidence of the white stuff is gone.
It’s good to see the sun.
The crazy cardinal visits several times daily.
He is keeping Miss Blackie entertained.
George says hello.
He had a Christmas bath on Monday.
He was a very good boy.

I’ve kept busy since school finished for the holiday break on the 18th. I’ve gone to dinner with friends, to a cocktail party, a Christmas party, hosted a dinner party, and just kept at it. Early tomorrow, I’m leaving on an adventure. I figured that if I just kept busy that I would have no time to be sad.
I was partly right.
But mostly wrong.
I’ve spent some time in the kitchen this holiday. I made this soup for a small dinner party I had here and served it with garlic bruschetta. It’s called winter minestrone soup and I found the recipe on Pinterest. A lot of chopping prep involved, but so worth it. It was absolutely divine. (And now my friends think I am a good cook).
I also made a fabulous chicken pot pie that was a big hit with my sons. I don’t have a picture, sorry.
Christmas Eve breakfast: Pain au chocolate
These are surprisingly simple to make, are best eaten warm, and are really delicious.
This morning, I set my alarm for 5:00 in order to get my son to the bus station for the ride back to the Big City. He returns to work today.
When I got home, I had some more coffee and then took my special guy for a little walk.
Christmas was hard this year. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Can you see George having a good roll?
I ran several errands this morning and am now watching a movie that came from Netflix: Dead Poets Society. It was filmed nearby at St. Andrew’s School, Delaware. Such a good movie, featuring Robin Williams at his finest.
I’ll say farewell for now, and hope that your days are merry and bright.
