Outpost Caretakers ~ The Morning, Noon and Night Before ChristmasDecember 25, 2011 | 643 Views
The holidays preparations have been ongoing. Waking up this morning with a full day planned and visions of baking to do and decorations to finish dancing in my head I took a moment to watch the swaying trees outside my bedroom window. Nestled and snug in my bed I noticed a creature was stirring — Sammy– outside looking in…..minus his antlers.
Heading into the kitchen first thing to make a quiche for breakfast Christmas morning.
A few more mincemeat tarts had to be made, seems we ate all the other ones already.
What’s mint without a bit of chocolate?
4 o’clock…the rain has stopped and the slightest bit of clear sky peeks through.
A holiday tradition, well at least one of mine, is to finish decorating the tree along with that first glass of eggnog.
The stocking were hung by the chimney with care.
The candles were lit.
The tree is complete.
Christmas Eve. Time to sit back, raise a glass and wish you all a Merry Christmas from the “Outpost”
