Tonight Is The Night

Winter Solstice that is. At 12:30 a.m. Winter will begin. Time for all of us to get our books, our craft projects or whatever floats your boat in order because once Christmas is over we will be looking for things to do on those long Winter's nights. I have a couple of things in mind that I want to get done. Some reading, some clearing the clutter and somethings that I will keep a secret for now. My food and gift giving shopping is all done. Tree is not up yet. But it is only a small tree and it is more like a Winter tree they a Christmas tree. It will go up tomorrow or Friday. Baking will begin tomorrow along with the cooking of tomato sauce for Christmas dinner. It is just Les and I and it has become our tradition to have some type of pasta and just enjoy the day and each other. I hope whatever is on your plate you will have it clean so that you too can enjoy the day and yourself. Merry Christmas.

Happy St. Nicholas Day

In Germany, it is customary to give fruit, nuts and candy to children on St. Nicholas's feast day. Seems like a fun kind of day. I wonder if this is still celebrated somewhere today. Hope everyone is fine and well. I won't even ask if you are busy! Who isn't at this time of year. Les and I are expecting a guest sometime this month, not sure when, so everyday something needs to get cleaned or put away. I am leaving the guest room to last or should I say when I know our guest is arriving. Take care and have a wonderful evening.
