Winter Wishes



"It was a cold, bleak, biting weather, foggy withal, and he could hear the people in the court outside go wheezing up and down, beating their hands upon their breasts, and stamping their feet upon the pavement stones to warm them."  ~ Charles Dickens

Yes - I'm reading "A Christmas Carol" again.  On cold, snowy days like today, it's a perfect companion.  Plus it distracts me from the teetering pile of unwrapped gifts in the corner, and the rolls of wrapping paper glaring at me with distain.

Like many of my fellow bloggers, I'm having a hard time keeping up with posting in the midst of holiday activities and the regular work and bustle of my daily life.  But I am still here.  I've planned a giveaway, but have run out of time - so it will be a New Year event.  I also meant to post some of the soup recipes I've been trying, but that too will show up in January when I've had more time to take some pictures and try a few more lovely soups.

I am looking forward to Yule and the lunar eclipse that is going to take place.  I'm hoping for clear skies Monday night!  This will be a busy week to come, so just in case I don't pop by - I want to wish you all the happiest Yule, and a safe and wonderful Christmas! 

May you have every good thing come to you!

I read that book every year. I treasure it. That is one of my traditions....along with several viewings of A Christmas Story on Christmas Day. Wishing you and yours a season of love, joy, and peace.

Solstice, Yule, Christmas and New Year blessings to you! Phew! That's a lot in one sentence! But be sure to pop by my blog tomorrow or over the holidays, okay, because I'm having a giveaway and it ends on New Year's Eve.

I hope you had a good weekend & are enjoying your winter reading! You've still got LOTS of time to get those gifts wrapped. So just stick your tongue out at the glowering wrapping paper & read another chapter. ^-^
