51/52: Merry Christmas!

Friday, January 15, 2021

I had every intention of posting quickly following Christmas Day and then... Life. The longer you go without posting, the easier it is not to post! But I do need to finish out the year of 2020 posts before I move on to 2021 I suppose, though I'm tempted not to challenge myself to do the 52 Project in 2021 since I just haven't felt like taking much pictures... It's harder in the winter! I like outdoor pictures much better, but I don't want to go outside. So I just don't take pictures. And the cycle continues. We'll see though, maybe I'll muster up the energy.

Anyway, it is still Christmastide, as we celebrate all the way through Candlemas, which is February 2nd. So Merry Christmas to you! Maybe I'll manage to get the rest of the Christmas cards sent out soon!

The kids helped me make this year's Buche de Noel, particularly the meringue mushrooms... So I'll blame them for any imperfections! It doesn't matter though, because it was delicious. Even if I am incapable of making a sponge cake without it getting cracks. That's what the frosting's for, after all!

Our friends' 7-year-old daughter, Celine, is in the hospital recovering from extreme burns. They would all greatly appreciate your prayers, particularly since her mother is due with #7 next month and Celine will be in the hospital for a while following skin graft surgery. You can follow her recovery here (you should be able to view without needing a facebook account, but I know FB keeps changing settings...) and if you feel inclined to help the family financially, there's a fundraising page here.

Please also keep in your prayers a father of five who is very seriously ill in the hospital right now - when I have information I am able to publicly share, I will do so, but the family will need a lot of help and prayers!


  1. It is so nice to hear from you again. I only have three children but my oldest is 8 and you have walked with me all these years xx

  2. Thanks for sticking around! Sometimes it feels like I'm just blogging into the void 😂 it's nice to know someone is still reading!


I *love* reading your kind comments and will always try my best to reply right here in the comment box so we can keep the conversation going! If you have a blog of your own, please do link to it so I can visit back :)
