Twas The Week Before Christmas Everywhere

  a few pictures from around here...
               It's a winter wonderland out here...
                                                a menagerie of sorts...

Here is a cookie recipe for you...(homework happening also:)
              Sunshine Tear Drops (or Bird Seed  Cookies to some...)
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds (also I put in ground flax seeds  because they're healthy)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup honey ( I used half molasses)
1 cup coconut or nuts
1/2 cup cocoa or carob powder
Mix well. Roll in balls and roll in coconut. Let sit to chill and either eat, freeze or refrigerate.
                                            molasses cookies..
                     thumb print cookies with currant jam and peanut butter balls

our tree would not ever be featured on the cover of a magazine but it is full of sentiment,and many hand made decorations.

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, may all the moments; ideal and not so perfect,
blend to bring you a Christmas that is full....full of joy...full of gratitude...full of peace.

please listen...


  1. Hi Lucy,

    Your cozy home is aglow with Christmas fun and festivities, (okay, and some h/w!). I can imagine all the wonderful aromas heating up the kitchen, carols 'simmering' on the stereo, and flashes of colour warming up the ambiance all around. You are surrounded by spectacular countryside and the calm and natural character of your beautiful animals; what could be more peaceful?

    Gorgeous photos of your world, the week before Christmas; thanks so much for sharing!

    Merry Christmas, sweetie!
