one last 2015 celebrate post
This week I have been reading and sipping coffee, knitting and sipping coffee, and stitching the binding off a lovely quilt (no coffee to accompany this task). We have a wonderful Christmas Eve service with the chance to say hello to friends we don't see often enough. Christmas day was slow and simple. We had family over for a late lunch of home made tamales and roasted vegetables - maybe a new tradition. Thoughts of mom floated in and out of these celebrations. She loved Christmas eve worship and singing carols and she was happiest when we were all gathered around the dinner table. Mom taught me to sew and to love reading. Mom memories are something I want to record and celebrate more often in 2016.
I am contemplating a word for the new year but have settled on one yet.
Today I am looking forward to a ride on the trail (yes, it is dry enough to take my bike out of the garage in December!) and cooking up a big pot of soup. Tonight we will watch the second of the Lord of the Rings movies and I will finish that binding and perhaps start a new hat.
Celebrating with Ruth and friends today and into the new year.
