Just wanted to wish any hardy soul who has made it here to this page, a heart-felt “Merry Christmas.” Our Christmas cake is ready, boxes are filled with gifts (honey, bath salts, crocheted book marks, plum breads frosted with brandy frosting), and we are ready for tomorrow. The cake is chocolate, containing sour cream and black and red raspberry jam. A shepherd’s pie is burbling in the oven, and soon, Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” read by Thomas, will be on the radio. Basically, I can’t ask much more of a Christmas Eve. Later, Jim and I will go to the 11:00 service at church, where candles will be lit, and carols sung.
Thank you for stopping by.
The old year now away is fled, the new year it is entered;
Then let us now our sins down-tread, and joyfully all appear;
Let’s merry be this day, and let us now both sport and play;
Hang grief, cast care away! God send you a happy New Year!
