Merry Christmas!

I spent yesterday cooking, wrapping, and generally preparing for last night and today, before slipping off to have an hour or so of quiet before the onslaught of festivities began.

We're doing some things differently this year - changes necessitated by jobs, and in-laws and extended family.

We're not even having turkey (not really going to miss it, especially since my cousin, a trained chef, is going to make pork roast and leg of lamb instead!)

It's funny how sometimes you don't know that something will be a last.  On the other hand, when there is an ending to something traditional, then there is also the beginning of something new.

I'm praying that all of you will encounter many lovely old things, and many lovely new ones as well this season.

Merry Christmas to all of you!
