I wish for anyone reading this a peaceful and contented Christmas, or other holiday…..I’m so happy you come by to just read, or to talk also….I hope you have good things to eat today and nice people to be with. Or if you are by yourself, I hope you are good company for yourself. And if there is music, I hope it is just the kind you most like. And the dessert is your favorite kind of dessert, and nice and sweet.

This morning I made apple pancakes for my ex husband and son. It was a nice relaxed brunch. We had a few presents too. And gathered around my Christmas vase of flowers. (It’s a big vase of flowers.)

I got some books of fairy stories and I read the Princess and the Pea. And also Country Mouse and City Mouse, which is my favorite so far.

Your friend, Ellen (kid) and Ellen (old(er))

    Glad I made you folks smile. :-)@ erin – Sometimes it's OK to be by yourself. I'm glad you didn't let the crow scare you! It is nice to hear about your day.@ Amanda – Well we'll get along really well then. I enjoyed the pancakes quite a bit more than the turkey from the night before. Books are a mainstay of my life. Nice to meet you on my blog!@JBR – I'm glad JBR. Hugs to you.@ Em – Books are excellent em. Merry Christmas to you also.
