Merry Christmas!

Stopping in after a busy week away to wish you all a Merry Christmas! It's been one of those less than traditional years for us, but it's all good! The essentials are in place, and we're feeling the cheer and hoping that you are too!

We came home to our Amaryllis in bloom, and everything still alive due to a faithful house sitter.

Nothing like a cheerful bloom to greet you after weary travels!

Even the greens are still fresh!

A few cards and sweet surprises from afar piled up on the table. And it looks like I'm going to be getting a new alternator for Christmas too! (Well, by next Thursday or so. Didn't count on that.)

But the gifts are wrapped.

The mistletoe is hung.

And we got every last errand finished this afternoon.

The posole and tamales are steaming on the stove, and soon the people we love will cross the threshold into another joyous Christmas Eve. 

You are all no doubt busy with parties and preparations too, but whenever this message greets you, we are sending you loving and warm thoughts wherever you are, and however you greet this celebrated mid-winter night and the coming days.

 Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year!

Happy Holidays,

Peace and Joy,

Hi Jacqueline, Thank you for your many memorable posts through this past year. I do hope you and your family have a joyous time together. We are waiting for a white Christmas - an unusual event here on the rain coast of Vancouver BC.
Our families are all away with who we call the “outlaws” as it is their year to have their children under one roof. Next year our turn again. We will celebrate in style on the 30th December.
All the best for a safe, healthy and happy 2018.
Regards Janine

Looks gorgeous as ever. Isn't it nice to be finished. I've decided next eve, we'll start at noon so everyone can go off to their own preparations without hurrying. It is nice to veg out for a couple of days though the frigid weather makes going out a task.

I'm in love with every image -- it speaks all of Christmas to me! I hope yours was the merriest ever!

Sending loads of good wishes your way. And a reminder -- I don't know if you entered my 10th anniversary Marmelade Gypsy drawing but if you didn't, today (Tuesday) is the last day. There's a link on the post that is under my Merry Christmas post (with our sweet baby!). You're so faithful so I hope you enter!
