We had a snow morning yesterday. This was the first time Elle has seen or been in the snow. I took her to the vacant lot next to our home. She ran through the snow drifts kicking up snow dust as she danced about. We went to visit her two pup friends down the street and the three of them ran back and forth. We were the only kids outside playing in the snow. Probably because the wind was blowing fiercely blizzard like out of the north. I made one pass down our hill and my hands were freezing by the time I arrived to the top.
We headed inside and warmed and nourished our bodies with waffles and saffron tea. I am in love with this tea.
Today is my birthday! My friend Julie is hosting a little dinner party for the occasion. We're also dropping by Ted and Dawns for a winter solstice event. You may remember me posting stories about their summer solstice party.
I'm getting so excited about Christmas! The goods to make Christmas Eve dinner are sitting in the pantry and the presents are wrapped. I still have rum cakes to deliver and cocoa and toffee. My family loves the toffee. It doesn't last long.
My dad just called to wish me a happy birthday. I'm blessed to have such a wonderful father. He means the world to me. Lennis left a birthday gift sitting next to my pc before he headed out to work. My good friend Debbie made a surprise visit on Wednesday and delivered a birthday present. I'm opening it this morning.
The wonderful friends and family in my life are truly what makes my life lovely. My life is trimmed with love. Thank you God for connecting me with such generous kind and considerate souls. I love each and every one of you. You are so very dear to my heart. Far-away friends too.
Enjoy caring and sharing holidays.
