Two days until Christmas, and I’ve done what I am going to do to prepare for the holiday. David finally got a wreath for the door and put up the out-door lights. I set up my ‘nativity scene‘ a pretty little crèche from Fontini. (To see this set in its glory, checkout Freda’s blog ‘What’s the Story in Dalamory, in the blogroll.)
I hadn’t tried setting up a manger scene since my kids were small, and my Dad built a roaring fire and set the Christmas finery, including a hand-painted crèche I had made for Mom, on fire.
My kids’ dad died last Friday night, and my daughter and granddaughters are headed out-of the area to NC. So, David and I decided to eat our Christmas dinner in ‘The Vantage Point’ a restaurant here in Arlington that overlooks the Potomac River with a view of DC. We still haven’t decided if we will attend a church service.
I will probably spend most of the holiday reading as I have an outrageous number of books in my Kindle cloud. I got a new iPad for Christmas, and downloaded the Kindle App so I can take my choice of venue.
