Merry Christmas

The Buche de Noel is done, with coconut cream in the ganache for Michelle.

The boxes are piled under the tree: if you’ve seen one Amazon, you’ve seen’em all–tomorrow we get to find out whose was which and for whom. (Um, oops. Well, it does save on the wrapping paper.)

And I had a huge surprise today, but it was someone else’s story mostly, so I’ll wait and ask her first before I say more. But it was a very very happy surprise.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, solace in the solstice, and may the peace of the season be with us all.

Ha! I’ll have to tell Mark his store-bag and shipping box wrapping was good for the economy.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Ah,young or old,nothing like surprises!

Which reminds me — When I was a youngster, my eldest sister used to wrap empty boxes. Then what ever gift fit was put inside, and tied with ribbon. When we opened the gifts, there was no ripping off of paper — just undo the ribbon, and open the box. My sister would save the box for the following year. After a year or two, she had enough boxes to save a lot of time in the wrapping and there was less mess to clean up afterwards.
