Hope you’re all enjoying a blessed and beautiful Christmas season! Most of our snow has melted and gone, but I can’t help enjoying the sights of the past few days again!
Today was a clean-up day – putting away, vacuuming a few corners, a fun rearranging of a child’s room upstairs. This afternoon has been delightfully quiet – Rob and the two older children went to the farm to do some barn work while the little two slept, the puppies slept, and I….well…I curled up in front of a cozy fire with a cup of cafe’ au lait in hand – so warming – staring at a pile of utterly inviting and delicious books and delights I received for Christmas! My biggest dilemma? Which to immerse myself in first?
Decision: The Resilient Gardener by Carol Deppe.
Followed by indecision: Management in the Home by Lillian Gilbreth, Orpha Mae Thomas, & Eleanor Clymer. (Are you familiar with Cheaper by the Dozen, based on the Gilbreth family? Lillian Gilbreth, the author of the book, is the mother of “the dozen”, and her ideas are remarkably practical and inspiring to me!)
Such happy dilemmas! Hope you’re all enjoying a little of the same! Warm fires…family time…and the delights and joys of this holy season!
