I hope all of you who bother to stop by here are on your way to enjoying some holiday down time, and party time, too! I've been busy shopping and baking and spending quality time with my "kid" - who turns 20 on Saturday - but it's all good. I'm likely to be absent from blogland for the next several days, but I do want to wish all my friends here a merry and peaceful Yuletide.
I know that the holidays are a difficult time for many; we're supposed to subscribe to some Disney-Hallmark-Rockwell fairytale of how things "should" be, or we're having a first Christmas without someone near and dear to share it with, or maybe a few of us are just born Grinches... yet I can't help but believe that there is some small something to celebrate at this time of year.
Even if it's just congratulating ourselves for making it through another year.
