We survived the ice storm and the sun came out. Isn’t it pretty shining through the trees like crystal? This must be the effect that Swarovski hopes to create with their lovely crystal snowflakes and stars.
We were blessed: only 12 hours without power. So we put on our woolen “Christmas hats” made by a neighbour on a mass scale for outreach programs and gifted to us a few years ago, put on our ski socks and lit candles. We sewed, drew, crocheted and generally enjoyed the silence that a complete lack of power creates. And all the sewing got done, the horse got stuffed and we enjoyed family games and eating by candlelight. A merry, grateful Christmas to each and every one of you!
