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.
