Merry Christmas! I hope you have reached the point in the frenzy where you can relax and enjoy the season. I think we have. Aside from making a few cheese balls, I'm down to wrapping presents.
The photo, above, is my view from my desk. Mr. L decorated our palm tree. I tried to discourage him, because it's very tall and I have a (justified) fear of tall ladders. So, he did it while I was gone, the stinker. It is beautiful, I must admit. It also got three of the other neighbors motivated so our section of the street is now very pretty.
This week's meals include two extra-special dinners -- Christmas Eve and Christmas Day -- so I have tried to make the rest of the meals a little on the healthier side.
I sincerely wish you and yours a beautiful, magical, holiday. --Love, C. Ironing.
