the mad flurry of things before Christmas
working in the garden
end of year activities for the kidlets
Today we put up our Christmas tree...
Our kidlets are super duper excited about Christmas - but in a sweet way - (they've never been the type to make a list of things for santa.... and subsequently are thrilled by anything in their small collection under the tree) - Christmas highlights for all of us are my family's Christmas Eve party in the park (I wrote all about this quite lovely tradition two years ago) and the huge Christmas gathering at Farmer Phil's family home over the paddock (usually 80+ family members - it's a monster!)
Right now I've got two pavlovas cooking in the oven and 5 jars of lemon butter (aka lemon curd or lemon cheese) cooling on the bench... I'm presently eschewing artiness (just for a couple of weeks... I'm brewing up an arty flurry, including those promised art musings that I'll be posting first thing in the new year)
Right now I'm channeling my inner domestic goddess and garden nymph instead.... and loving it!
