Now the kids have all moved on, and my husband and I don't really need the extra calories of Christmas cookies so I have given up the Christmas bake-fest - except for shortbread. It's such a simple cookie but, oh so, delicious. I will probably make some extra and tuck it into the freezer so I can have a little piece in the depth of winter when I need a treat.
For the first time since we've been married, we won't spend Christmas at home. We are going to our daughter's home where everyone will get together. This year we have three new additions - a new granddaughter, a new daughter -in-law, and a new significant other for our other son.
I'm looking forward to being a guest, instead of a host. Just a little more wrapping to do and I'll be ready. Right now I am listening to the podcast of the CBC sing-in that happened in Montreal last week. Lovely music.
I hope you have special moments over the holidays, and if it is a sad time this year, I hope you have happy memories of other years.
