Merry Christmas



Christmas trees come in all shapes and sizes, y'all.

I didn't think this one needed any tinsel, so I let it be.

PFHQ is in full Christmas tradition mode at this point with all kids home and a turkey ready to go oven diving.

I love our Christmas traditions.

The thing about tradition, is ... well, ...it's traditional.
Not boringly repetitive, but reliably consistent.
Sorta like that heirloom climbing rose outside my window.
It'll bloom this spring, just like it does every spring and the blossoms will be white just like they were last year and every year before.

T'won't be exactly the same though.
T'will be reliable,comforting, and welcome when it happens with just enough change to make it a unique experience.


That's how I see it anyway.

Let's see ... checking my list and checking it twice ...

Now, I should get wrapping.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Merry Christmas!
We breaking with dining tradition and having lemon meringue pie for Christmas dessert tomorrow. The lemons arrived fresh off the tree yesterday from my favorite cousin in Deland. We are just slurping up that Florida sunshine.

Merry Christmas!
Just taking a break from turkey basting.
It seems a watched turkey never roasts.
Bear has located his present among the others already under the tree, so HIS package is now atop the mantle until tomorrow morning.
