home sweet home

Home. Mmmmm. Doesn't my mom make a cozy bed!? I spent a lot of time in that warm sunny spot, curled up reading books and fighting a chest cold. There was lots of snow in Maine...making it look like a picture-perfect Christmas card! Because we were all sick, it was a quiet, peaceful holiday, filled with books and good food. The way it should be I think. Here are some of our simple joys:

* roast goose with Texas fruitcake stuffing (the latter a new invention on our part, and really quite delicious!)
* smoked Maine salmon
* a menagerie of sugar cookies sprinkled with colored sugar
* lots of tea
* sweet gifts exchanged with happy surprise
* and a few long winter naps!

I hope you too had a lovely holiday.

It was more of the same for us as well in Pittsburgh (without the snow) as we all had head-colds! Awful! I am jealous of all your snow!

What a beautiful, bright winter sky! Welcome back.

Your holiday sounds heavenly....Mine was in Grand Rapids, Michigan (home of the Gerald Ford Presidential Library, don't you know). Now is this Texas fruitcake stuffing a Blyberg family secret? so glad you're back! xo EEE

Sounds lovely, except for the being sick part.

That does look like the coziest bed one could possibly imagine. And I agree with you . . . peaceful with books and good food sounds just about perfect.
