Holiday Reading

Here's hoping you're enjoying a pleasant day. 

I've also been enjoying a couple of Christmas stories from the library -- The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber. It's a fast and light-hearted read for those curl-up times by the fireplace. I'm not usually into the 'romance' novels, but this one was fun.

The other one was The Handmaid and the Carpenter by Elizabeth Berg. The author takes the story of the Nativity and muses 'between the lines' about what this historic event meant to Mary and Joseph. It gave me an appreciation for what they might have experienced and encountered. I enjoyed the story.

It's hard to believe the countdown is so near now. Only nine more sleeps (or eight if you count Christmas Eve as the beginning of Christmas, as I do).

The sun shines bright on snowy banks this morning. Our weather has been a bugbear these past few days, but we're into a 'thaw' --- well, not quite, but after that -36C stuff, anything above -20C feels like we're near the banana belt.

Best be off.... I'm baking Almond Cherry Balls today.

Happy Day!
