There was not as much holiday baking as last year, when I made the fabulous Buche de Noel, cookies, crescent rolls, etc. But, I did manage to squeak out a chocolate cake for our solstice celebration. Atticus may have helped...
It was dark and beautiful.
Elias has been busy. I don't think he left his room for two days, except to eat and use the bathroom.
He created little animals and characters and even invented a game to play with them.
I surprised everyone on Christmas eve with some peppermint bark
And of course there was music
And I am dreaming of the summer garden. So much work to do in the spring. But, for now, I just observe my little piece of the world as winter unfolds.
