Merry Christmas to all!!
And our own little holiday ambience (that candle smells like a real wood fireplace) and those clove oranges I made with girlfriends at a holiday crafting night.
We had the girls downstairs over for make your own ice cream sundaes, with homemade caramel and chocolate sauce and also hot chocolate (spiked for the adults). Ice cream sundaes does seem like the perfect holiday dessert here in Hong Kong.
It’s been unseasonably warm! We enjoyed a lovely lunch at the beach and I was really sweating when I tried to wear my new boots! Silly girl.
Packages have been sent and most (fingers crossed!) have arrived. Have I mentioned here that I LOVE HKPost?? It costs the same to send a package from San Francisco to Boston as it does to send it from here to Boston. How is that possible?
Jam has been made… passionfruit this year instead of the usual red pepper jelly.
I’m most excited about giving gifts from Vision First and of course I did buy a few of these pretty balls for our own growing ornament collection.
Santa has already stopped by… if you’re wondering what that large suitcase is doing under the tree… well I asked Santa to fix my bag’s zippers (something I have been trying to do for no fewer than 18 months) and it looks like I may have been a good girl after all. Sending you all lots of warm wishes for a blessed Christmas day!
