Merry Christmas, everyone. I've been a bit MIA recently because preparing for the Holiday dinner is quite a large task. Servius messed up his rotator-cuff pretty badly and so he has not been able to help as much as usual. We've had some other unforseen setbacks too. But despite all of this, the house is decorated and almost cleaned and we are going to sit by the fire and eat the apple tarts I made for breakfast.
I woke up early this morning to start baking the loaves (five loaves of bread just in case something goes wrong). The first loaf is beautiful so its been a lovely Chirstmas morning so far. Merry Christmas, everyone.
P.S. I heard a story about a dear friend who said she would move back to this city to come to our Christmas dinners. I wanted to let her know that we would be happy to have her anytime she comes back to this coast!
