’tis the season

I’ve spent the day preparing a feast for our family and friends. Brni cleaned and set the house to rights and then the two of us sat watching the DVD set of Boston Legal as we wrapped presents to put under the tree.

I’m very much into the holiday season this year. I feel better physically than I have for a long time, plus both my children are in a good place this year. There’s also a weird peace knowing that my dad is not suffering the confusion of dementia anymore. I’m sad he’s gone, but relieved he’s at peace.

So tomorrow–no today–I will celebrate Solstice/Yule/Christmas by offering food from my heart to those I love and cherish.

Happy Christmas to all, friends and family.


return of christmas

This time last year, my back trouble was so debilitating that we had to cancel our Christmas party for all but immediate family and a few very close friends. But this year saw the return of our annual Christmas open house after my successful surgery. It was a long, happy day full of food, drink, presents and lovely people.

Here are a few photos of Christmas morning behind the cut.
