I walked around the outside of our home a few minutes ago to observe the Christmas decorations and lights we worked on this weekend in preparation for the Holiday Season. As always at this time of year James makes our Victorian home feel like a Currier and Ives lithograph. Knowing I was going to be outside for just a couple minutes I did not wear a jacket which only made coming back into the glow of the lights, the warmth of home, and scent of dinner in the oven even more welcoming. On the seat of a rocker is The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin I started this afternoon. With a light covering of snow outside and the season taking hold inside makes it easy for the following announcement.
It is never too early to get into the mood for making cookies and planning time with friends and family as the weeks ahead move very quickly. Therefore until shortly after the start of 2015 I am taking a few week’s respite from the daily blogging that has been underway since July 2013 when I came back after writing my book.
While I will from time to time comment on news events briefly on my Caffeinated Politics Facebook page real blogging on this site is taking a holiday break. Happy Holidays and see you in the New Year!
