It seems I have been slack on the blogging front. However I did think about blogging over the holiday and even took some photos for the purpose.
Mat spent quite a bit of Christmas Day pottering in the kitchen. You can see the leg of lamb in the foreground, a couple of pots on the stove, and him putting vegetable scraps into a container to give to the chickens later.
We had friends over for dinner, including my friend Heidi who came up from Boston for a couple of days.
Freya received a lot of art supplies as gifts and began work immediately on a painting. Here she is using inks and a Japanese watercolour brush to begin. She's filling in that space with small spirals.
It got colour later and now hangs in my office.
I finished up some knitting projects. A sweater that I wore that day and that is going to become a wardrobe staple for our not-always-very-warm house.
And a cardigan, which has since acquired button bands but has yet to acquire buttons
