A beautiful Yule was had. The eve saw me finishing off gifts for a friend's children, and a wee spell of healing for another friend. Phew the energy, took me a while to come down from it. Can you feel it; it's palatable on my skin, it feels like little explosions of fireworks tingling all up and down me.
Afterwards, the spirit of the Winter King game upon me, and the wrapping commenced, and the filling of stocking. Then wearily I clambered into bed for sleep. The energy of the turning wheel invaded my sleep turning it restless. So when a certain young man appeared at the foot of my bed, all excited and jiggly, I had to bite back a groan.
Matchsticks may have been needed, but what mama can be grumpy in face of such joy?
Then downstairs; the Yule candle lit and over awed exclamations when Rye saw the tree;
The rest of the afternoon was play, and Rye taking lots of photos and movies with his new camera. Soon it was time to make moves and go to our friend's house for the FEAST.
Arrived to much excitement from Cassie's kids and delicious smells of the FEAST.
And we ended with a game of junior monoply........... which went on, and on, and on... lol suppose to only last 20 minutes! Cassie and I began to get very competitive, good naturedly of course, it was hilarious; in fact I suspect we had more fun than the kids.
I had planned, once home, to enjoy a tipple and pop outside to toast the stars; honestly tho, I was so shattered I ushered Rye upstairs and into his bed, kissed him good night and fell into my own bed.
It was a fantastic day, and lovely to share with another family.
I'm hoping to return the hosting next year, and have our friends over to my house. :-)
I hope you all had a lovely Solstice, and many wishes for a Merry Christmas :D
