Happy Christmas Eve ~ I hope all of you are enjoying some of the final preparations for tomorrow's celebration. I hope you have a restful night tonight and a peace, joy and love filled day tomorrow, whether you are with friends and family, or even alone. I spent the last three Christmases alone, adjusting to widowhood, but this year I am spending time with family and I am looking forward to that.
It is almost 1 p.m. EST, is 83 degrees and feels like it is 87. This has to be a record setter for Christmas weather. It isn't. I just looked and it was 85 last year on this day, and in 1941 it was 88. The a.c. is keeping it nice and cool in here and feels good.
I did cookie baking yesterday and today. Would have made more but ran out of a.p. flour and didn't feel like going out into the madness that is out there to get more.
Below are pics of nativity and heavenly host. In my header you can see the main little Nativity figures, Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, the three wisemen and a cow and a donkey. We bought them in the little town square of Rota, Spain, the town where DH was stationed in the US Navy. These are made of mud, and can still be bought today, all sorts of figures, not just the Navitity figures.
DH made the creche probably 40 years ago and I love setting it up every year. I need to get some garland to wrap around the light wires.
That's it for now.
Merry Christmas and have a wonderful 2016.
Let the Light of Love from God shine in your heart,
filling you with love, peace & joy.
