A little of this, a little of that

Sam got to visit with a high school friend whose difficult recent pregnancy resulted in now-healthy four-month-old twins, beautiful, happy little girls. Tired parents. Old friends. Much love.

Her luggage is here now, thank goodness, with help from her siblings, who drove off to retrieve it.

My phone was indeed in the car from calling her at the airport yesterday. I thought so, but it was hailing last night and I really didn’t want to go out there to see. As close to a white Christmas as we get around here.

A chocolate hazelnut torte got baked: something everybody could safely eat.

Michelle ran errands again, this time to get gluten-free things for her sister and milk for my hot cocoa in the morning–missing out on the ongoing conversation to do so, which struck me as heroic.

And I almost got some knitting done.

Joy! We had wintry mess yesterday. (Weather people say mix, but they’re inside, not out in it. It’s a mess!) Of course the siblings are looking after each other; they are following in your footsteps.

You mean you didn’t go out caroling? Neither did I. Good to hear that your gang had such a good time, even if your knitting needles were engaged only briefly.

My daughter and her husband took about 3 days and 7 airports to get from New Haven to Albuquerque. (Neither one is a hub, so it got really complicated after the first cancellation.) My nephew, who might have become deathly ill on a plane, decided at the last minute to miss the flight and go to the hospital in a strange city. He’s now fine, but he wouldn’t have been. And my granddaughter decided to put in an appearance the day after Christmas. That didn’t involve an airplane, but people were getting impatient.

I’m glad Sam has been reunited with her luggage as well as with the rest of you. Have fun.

Chocolate. Family. Yarn. And the missing luggage. What more do you need? Sounds like bliss to me!

Our white Christmas week foggy! Chocolate torte and good conversations…I’ll take tea with mine, please. 🙂

It sounds like a wonderful holiday gathering. I hope the joy continues flowing. I’m enjoying watching my in-laws enjoy watching their three children enjoying each other and doing for each other like yours are.
