|Early morning light...|
Today is sunny but most of the past week we had days upon days of cold drizzle that (to me) felt much colder than snow. So... while the weather remained frightful, inside it was delightful. :)
The Christmas tree remained lit all day, many hot beverages were consumed, soup was made twice and bread baked once, and a cat could be found cuddled on my lap to keep warm on many evenings.
So far I have finished re-reading No Holly for Miss Quinn, Village Christmas, and The Christmas Mouse by Miss Read. I found Goudge's Christmas novel called Sister of the Angels (a sequel to the lovely City of Bells) was even more enjoyable as a re-read.
Shepherds Abiding has just been removed from the shelf and now resides on the To Be Read Soon space on the coffee table... a space which can become quite jumbled at times.
One of the Holiday Specials on the splendid BBC Holiday DVD set was from the Ballykissangel series, which is a 1990s show set in Ireland. I checked the library near campus and indeed... they have the first three seasons!
|I love the house ornament, purchased long ago. The vintage girl was from a thrift shop.|
|My favorite theologically incorrect angel, I made her when Christopher was little.|
|Friendly Village is perfect for Christmas.|
Watching the PBS Hummingbird special
I'm sensing a serious feline television addiction. My memory card shows there have been many "cat watching TV" pictures lately! ;)
