Whew

24 Dec

i had forgotten how much more work fun it is to have a bunch of people at Christmas.  And it really is both ~ more work and more fun.  We’ll be ten or twelve of us for dinner tomorrow, at my house, and probably a few more for dessert.   i’m ready to enjoy it all ~ the prep and the feast.

i’m missing my daughter and granddaughter in Very-Far-Away, but that’s ok.

Since i still have lots of stuff to do, i may not be around much today or tomorrow.  So i leave you with this thought:
