A Lovely Day

The hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas.
The Christmas dinners.
Christmas shopping.

 Driving here,  driving there and then here and there all over again.
Family gatherings.
Sisters calling this sister, who called that sister, who then calls this brother, 
brother then calling to see what is what. 

 Then finally Christmas day arrives....and it was nice and peaceful.  
A lovely, quiet day.

 The children quietly assembling their new electronics thingamajigs.
No one around outside, the neighbours cars all parked in their driveways.
White snow outside added beauty to the day.

 The whole world just seemed quiet yesterday.
Calm and serene.

I normally have the forks on the left side of plate, but I had  small gifts there and re-moved them for the pictures.

  And I loved it!
How was your Christmas day?



I will be linking up with Wow Us Wednesday at  Savvy Southern Style


  1. That's so sweet. Your dishes and pictures are beautiful. I loved that hustle and bustle was over as well. I am feeling very relieved that my long term job is over and I have over a week off with the kids. Happy Holidays!

  2. Beautiful decorations! I'm so glad to be your newest follower, love your blog:)
