It really was.
The extended blogging break was nice also...unplanned, but nice.
Christmas morning dawned, and Santa had arrived. Wishes were fulfilled, cinnamon rolls were eaten, and we had a lovely relaxing day.
I made a special Christmas dinner for our family, even using our special Christmas china! I had saved some evergreen boughs, and made a center piece with tea lights nestled in epsom salts in some of my mason jars. Very fancy for us!
Here are the candles that night. I loved the sparkly glow.
The day after Christmas, the snow arrived.
And so did the flu. By New Year's Eve, everyone had a cough, fever, and had spent too much time in bed. We spent several days with our high temperature no more than 10 degrees (Fahrenheit), and freezing fog left it's mark around the yard.
Thankfully, the children didn't start back to school until yesterday, so everyone was well again in time.
I hope this finds all of you well and happy. I promise to get back into the swing of things soon.
Was your New Years as low key as mine?
