Happy Solstice!

Of course, as school ends and the holidays begin, I am sick. I'm trying to fight this cold with oranges and rest, so today I'm plopped down on the couch watching HGTV. I should be completing the last two sewing projects (gifts) but I've decided that an IOU or two may be easier on me.

Tonight I plan to celebrate the Solstice by eating cookies, drinking tea and getting all cozy by the tree. There are big celebrations for the festival of lights in Kensington Market, but I'm going to have to pass this year. Are you doing anything to celebrate the longest, darkest night, and the subsequent return to light????

I'm sorry to hear you are sick. Yuck! Your little tree looks quite like ours this year. Super cute.
I have my niece tonight and after dinner we all went for a long drive to see the Christmas lights while drinking hot cocoa. We had to see from the car instead of walking down the "fancy street" because of the rain but it was all so glittery and pretty!
HUGS my sweet friend. I miss you.

I got your wonderful card just before I left (drove to Missouri while you were on the couch, am headed for Florida tomorrow). I did listen to Mary Chapin Carpenter sing "The Longest Night of the Year" on the drive down - my favorite Solstice song. I hope you starty feeling better very quickly. Have another orange.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather Martha, but you've done a scrumptious job on your tree. Hmmm, maybe all those Christmas bulbs will bring back the light. Hope you feel better soon.
