Do you ever have one of those days – that you feel like you’re sleepwalking
barely roused from a deep dream.
That is how I’m feeling today. After long days of preparation and
anticipation, our Christmas party arrived and then it was over.
The moments are now but memories.
We have been hosting our annual party for years.This one was special
because we celebrated my husband’s upcoming 50th birthday – I actually
pulled it off and surprised him. It was such a marvelous time –
I read to him the poem, ‘To My Dear and Loving Husband’ by
Anne Bradstreet and each of our children gave tribute to my husband.
In addition to the party food I prepared, I served Coconut Cake cupcakes
giving him a large one with one candle in it –
Today as I sit in a sense of an in-between world of daydreaming
I enjoy a lovely cup of tea with one of the cupcakes while looking
over some of my Christmas with Victoria books.
It is a still and quiet day – I believe there is a thunderstorm on the horizon, but I’ll cherish these few moments of solitude and quietness…
reflecting in my awakened dreamy state.
I hope you’re having a marvelous first day of the week. There’s so
much still to do – I think that to me it all comes down to the moments
of gathering together with loads of laughter, those moments when
you’re enjoying the quietness of your own solitude and those
day-dreaming moments when the world seems to be far away
with all troubles and cares.
