This week, while home for a few days, I helped set up Mom's Christmas Tree. This morning I drew some of the ornaments for my morning drawing and took a couple snap shots. We had a good time shopping round town the past two days, only finding a few things worth bothering to take home. Then we spent the evening setting up the tree, a rich family tradition. All the ornaments are full with history for me as many are inherited from dead friends and lovers. This week Mom got a copy of the Washington Post which had a really list of holiday cookies here with dozens of new recipes and we might be trying several over the holidays.
