School's out and we are having such a lovely time anticipating Christmas Eve with baking, decorating, singing. I need to write Christmas cards next. My kids told me this 4th Sunday of Advent that for the next two Fridays, there is no penance because they are feast days!!! Why yes!!! After a bit of fasting, the feasting is even more special! I wish I could share bread and cookies and fresh oranges with all of you.
Our little garden didn't fare well this year. We got ONE teeny tomato and ONE tough okra. The herbs did okay, as did the peppers and when the oranges started ripening, I had to exercise tremendous self control to not pluck them and eat them up ... they are soooo sweet fresh off the tree.
