T'was the night before Christmas.
A gift for my Mom. (There is a lovely woman named Dot, with a company called the Busted Button who makes these art pieces, but it sadly wasn't in the budget this year, so we went ahead and made our own - I'm very happy with how they turned out!)

(Oh yes, we're back-dating posts here.)
Oh my how I love to celebrate the Winter Solstice. The return of the light.
After a morning at the Last Chance Christmas Market in Creemore, I filled my car with goodies and headed home. We started the fire early, enjoyed rabbit stew, and venison roasted over the fire. Plus good friends, many many good friends. The children ran around in the snow until way past their bedtime...both of them actually asked me to go to bed, they were so tired. We took a break from the fire mid evening, when someone got the idea to go Christmas Caroling. So up and down main street we went, singing our (only slightly inebriated) hearts out to those who would listen. All of this in the midst of one of the worst ice storms in recent history in our area. (We enjoyed about half rain and half snow all night, but we were pretty saturated by the end of the evening.)
Happy Solstice, my friends. Enjoy the return of the light!
