Today was a day filled with happiness and sweetness. There were family and friends and charming, appreciative children. I was so damn festive I even mulled a few wines. (A hit; a palpable hit.) The horses were kicking up their heels as the sun came out. Stanley the Dog was in a haze of pleasure as he made a new friend, when the dog of the Older Niece and the Man in the Hat arrived on the compound. I wrapped some presents and made some lists and time dashed past me. I’ll never quite catch up with this Christmas, but it’s proving to be rather a lovely one, for all that.
At last, I could take the camera out:
I hope you had a happy Sunday.
