Christmas Day

We had a lovely day!

My MIL came, which is very rare, and my mom. Hubby picked them up and we had lunch, a small gift exchange and pleasant conversation around the fireplace. It felt good, like it should be, like family and love.

Hubby cooked his amazingly tender turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy. Mom brought her squash casserole, corn pudding, cheese sauce and kibi. With a few additions and pies we were stuffed piggies and the food dishes looked barely touched.

MIL raved about my decorating and insisted I open a gallery for my artwork. So sweet and appreciated.

Christmas Day was relaxing and special.

Winter Window

Don't you love plants in a Kitchen window...and Christmas Cactus in bloom?

Coffee/Tea, a small kitchen garden...a lovely start to the day.
