2013 Christmas Tree

And I had just finished my 22nd Nutcracker performance of the season.  

My arms were tired beyond reason,

(Not good for present wrapping, or cookie baking)

But if I said I wasn’t excited, I’d be faking.

Off I went to find the wrapping paper,

So that we could enjoy our champagne and a caper.

Blogging wasn’t really in the plans,

But I wanted to send a message across the lands

To bid my readers a very peaceful night,

and a Christmas full of light!

      Muito obrigada, Teresa, e Feliz Natal para ti!

      O meu pai faz bolo rei todos os anos. Este ano vou estar com os pais em Ohio para a festa do “Epiphany.” Se qualhar, tenho a sorte de ficar com o brinde…:-)

      Um abraco e melhors desejos para um ano novo feliz, Joana
