The Day After
I have been a bit absent from the blog-o-sphere as of late. I would like to tell you that it has been due to excessive social functions, too much fudge, and drowning in gifts. Though my holidays have been entirely blessed, I am afraid my absence has been due to excessive Netflix, too much reading and way too much cooking.
I should have taken down the Christmas decor today, but didn't get to it. When I was a child, nothing was taken down until well past New Year's Eve. Not sure this was due to Old Christmas in Appalachian families, but in today's time I feel a bit crowded and it must come down.
It has been cold and is getting even colder. My sweet English Pointer is here swirled in his blanket. This photo echoes my sentiments of staying inside, cozy, and warm.
Christmas Even had me feeling all Julia Child. Coq Au Vin was on the menu and turned out great. Yes, a large mess was made, but it was worth it.
We have been blessed with fun, family time, gifts, and visits with friends. More of that is to come and I hope you have been blessed with the same.
