There was a part of me, last night, that said…you didn’t post your blog. And another part that said, yes, of course you did. One part was wrong.

So, here it is…my late blog post.

It was a foggy day with freezing drizzle, a great day to be inside working. Glad I didn’t have to commute to work!

Happy Boxing Day! Today is a sleep-in, pajamas all day, binge watching kind of day for me…much to my cats’ chagrin.

That’s Dukes laying on top of me. He’s already been fed but wants my undivided attention for the rest of the day.

Today’s painting…only five more to go!!! Make a wish on the shooting star!

I spent the day in my pajamas watching The Morning Show. Only one episode to go. What a great, relaxing, chill-axing, day. Work tomorrow and then the weekend!

Have a great night!

Happy Christmas everyone!

Spent the day with family…brunch with my brother and his family then supper with my sister and her family and in-laws. So much fun, so much love, and so much joy!

Happy Christmas!

I had to stop working on dinner so I could capture tonight’s amazing sunset! Holy wow! Look at the reflection in the ice on our laneway. So beautiful!

I started this painting while waiting for my nephews to arrive with the turkey – we were on chef duty tonight! I started with a blue sky, then I added red. They pulled in as I was finishing the red. I looked up and saw a tinge of red in the sky, then looked at my painting…cool!

I finished it later, needing a few quiet minutes alone amongst the celebration.

We tried something new tonight, Jamie cooked the turkey, following a recipe very different than our traditional way. Change is good. We had a little hiccup which resulted in eating much later but everyone adapted and rolled with it. We opened gifts before supper instead of after, then everyone pitched in to set the table and fix the trimmings. It all came together so nicely, everyone in cheerful moods! What a night, what a meal!

Happy Christmas!
