Had not quite 48 hours to collapse with books and tea and Christmas leftovers before we had a (24-hour) Sleepover with a Six and a Three. They've just gone home, and I have a book all lined up for reading in between dough-folding for the next batch of bread. . .
But I thought you might like to see this quick addition to my journal, sketched lsat night while the Two Young Artists worked
Harriet's printing is quite clear, so I'm sure you can read her words -- I couldn't resist gluing her note into my book -- I love you so mush. . . ;-)
Middle right: These two -- Harriet and Fergus -- are here for a sleepover -- a 24-hour sleepover and it's been raining and raining. Luckily, they are both happy to settle in with the art supplies.
Bottom right: Hot chocolate, Whipping Cream (in a can!), Shaun the Sheep! (oh, they laughed, so did we); Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches, Two helpings each of Gingerbread Trifle . . . Mmmmmm. . .
And now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be putting the kettle on and downloading C.J. Sansom's Dissolution from the library. My queue's a bit backlogged there, so I've some serious catch-up reading to do.
I wish you all a good balance between the festive and the regenerative tranquility. . . Are you finding that right now?
