‘Tis the Season

1702

 

Merry Christmas!  I’m trying to post a bit for the holidays, as time permits.  We will see if I can keep it up.  My laptop is still broken, so I am borrowing my husband’s late at night after the kids are in bed.   The girls and I spend much of our spare time with speed skating club and the girls’ roller derby (I’m joining the recreational league in January!).  Hal is learning to read and endlessly creating Lego sculptures, and George is full of joy and wonder and 2 yr-old energy.  We are making all sorts of changes in the back yard gardens when the weather permits.  Life is busy and good and we are enjoying slowing down a bit for the holidays.

The last week or so, we have been trying to finish up Christmas presents and school projects.  I was a bit late in potting-up the paperwhites, but hope they will bloom in time for New Year’s Day.  One for us in a newly-found blue dish from the thrift store, and two for gifts.

I had a little helper bundle up to help me in the chill and sunshine:

Be back very soon with some requested recipes and more of our Advent season.

Blessings.

    So nice to hear from you! Awesome that you’re doing roller-derby. It’s such a perfect contrast to gardening. My yin/yang is triathlons / cooking & gardening. Merry Christmas to you & yours!

    Thank you, Kathleen! It feels a bit like having an alter ego. I’m normally in long skirts and wool socks and trying to cultivate peace and sustainability. Then I throw on spandex leggings and a tank top and a helmet and do my darnedest to fly around the track at speed skating. In January when I join Wreckers, it will all only get more surreal. :)
