Heap on the wood! — the wind is chill;
But let it whistle as it will,
We’ll keep our Christmas merry still.

— Sir Walter Scott

And a merry Christmas it was.

We’re enjoying our jammed schedule here in beautiful, cold Wisconsin. Today provided a rare quiet morning. It didn’t last long, but I relished a moment of peace with my coffee as snowflakes danced in front of the windows.

Wishing you all breaks, if only momentary, in the holiday action to be at ease. See you back next year!
