From the parking structure at the train stop
I can see out over the Atlantic to the rather tiny almost an island where I live
sometimes there is a ship or two sailing past on the horizon
on their way into Boston....just like me.
the Sweet shop
around the corner from Beacon Hill
all decorated like a magical faerie land for Christmas
and filled with chocolates and goodies!!
It seems like the Advent season and Christmas flew by this year!
I put all the Christmas things away on Monday.
I normally wait till closer to New Year's but the tree was dying fast
and I wasn't sure it would last till the end of the week.
As much as I love having all the house decorated for the season
it's always so nice to have it all cleared out and clean again.
Christmas was very special for us this year
although it was a year with some pretty heavy losses in our family
it was also a year with some pretty happy gains
Verne is at the top of that list
My mum, my daughter, Bonnie, Verne, and myself!
Some of our family members thought it would be nice to have a
special wedding cake for Joe and I to celebrate our
wedding cake this year!
So after we ate our Christmas dinner they surprised us with a beautiful cake!
