For us, it was a very quiet Christmas Day here on the prairie. As I made my way into the kitchen to get a cup of java, I noticed that it was going to be a sunny day, according to the shadows on the wall. Of course, I paused. Admired and then went back to the bedroom to grab my camera. I love waking up to such surprises!
Beside the coffee pot sits my shabby chalkboard (which I now use as a calendar).
December 25th. Christmas.
I hope that you had a wonderful one!
I called my family first thing. I think that next December I am going to suggest to them that we celebrate as a family AFTER Christmas has passed. Possibly, we will be able to ring in the new year together!
As I sipped the coffee, I did browse through the photos that we had taken just two weekends ago. We had a perfect Christmas together and I cherish the memories.
I am in no hurry to take down our Christmas decorations. In fact, I would never do so before New Years Day! It's all too pretty and I enjoy the warm and cozy!
I do, however, need to return to reality and routine.
I brushed up on my painting yesterday afternoon.
Tiny greeting cards in watercolor.
I rarely do art for fun these days. Personal art. It was pure joy to simply play!
I have three large commission paintings to produce by February so today I begin!
Wishing you a fabulous day and I will meet you right back here...
