We just got home. Sent the kids back to their “spots” last night. They got home safely.
It is a new year, but I am feeling like I am not quite done with Christmas. It was such a rush to get the “painting project”, i.e., the house, in shape for company on Christmas day; Seventeen for dinner…haven’t ever had my dining room table stretched out so far. And all that lovely china and old silverware added to the day’s sparkle. It was such a joy to drag out the familiar old (and much treasured) ornaments and decorations to find new places for them to shine. The house feels more like home now. It was a good holiday. I am going to savor it all for just a few more days before the ladders and brushes come out again.
Tai-Jin was sorely missed, will forever, be missed…but, we got through.
May this New Year be a good one for you and yours…we are hoping for the same.
