We had such a lovely Christmas eve getting the house ready for guests.
This is as uncluttered and decorated as we’ve been since last New Year’s eve, our last party.
I spent some of yesterday morning ironing table linens — 2 tablecloths and a few dozen napkins.
I also organized two and a half dozen roses into four arrangements.
Charlie had put lights on the live tree about ten days ago. I finished with balls, special decorations, and strands of ribbon.
Today we’re going to breakfast at Starbucks, take in an early church service, and enjoy the day together.
I’m planning to get out the good dishes and do a bit of cooking. Just enough to keep us from going hungry. Nothing fancy.
Christ is born!
If you could eat only one holiday dish what would it be?
