I'm not sure if it's the egg nog, the hot apple cider or the warm fire but I've been on vacation mode and it feels quite good.
Here's what we've been up to...first, this is Hubby reading, "The Joy of Cooking" in hopes to discover a fabulous new Christmas Eve recipe. See those 'crumbs' on his pocket? Well, they're not from Christmas cookies, those are tree crumbs from splitting and hauling in so much wood for our fires.
We also went cross country skiing up around Mt. Hood. It was a beautiful blue bird day. Note: Lucy is still smiling!
And there's been lots and lots of cozy time in the house....with lots of accompanying warm beverages...like hot cocoa.
And hot apple cider - something I've consumed a lot of this past week.
There's also been a lot of Backgammon (shhhh, I'm on a winning streak).
And a lot of sitting in front of the fire enjoying the Christmas tree lights.
And the warm glow of the fire.
The new furniture is proving to be very comfortable and conducive to lazy day snuggling.
I love how the cabinet glass reflects all the light in the room.
Nate over at Laurel Street nominated me for the Homies 2009 Award! Wow, huh? I'm absolutely honored but also, feel a little shy!
Happy New Year!
