Sunday Surmisings

Sunday, November 29, 2020

Awoke to beautiful sparkling frost everywhere, the sun is shining and the skies are blue. It is in the 50's now, warm for the end of November.

Routine sometimes get us through a day, sometimes they are a rut we are stuck in. Now that the feasting of Thanksgiving is over, and winter is here, changes need to be made. Yes I am focused on the holidays. The 13 dishes at Christmas Eve dinner seems a bit excessive for four people. Paring down but still keeping the most important parts:
Meatless can stay, check.
Opłatek defineately stays, check.
Dinner after the appearance of the first star, check.
My cheesecake, check.
Alright we can do this. Traditions do change. For example I have heard of folks that had the Christmas Eve carp swimming in their bathtub until they cooked it for dinner, (yikes). Nope, never did that.
So yes, just like 2020, traditions and routines can and do change.

❤️ Grateful -
Sparkling frost.
For curbside pick-up.
Lovely cups of herbal teas.

    this will be first year no christmas eve party at my house. when i was tiny santa came on christmas eve and brought lollipops. Then my uncle and aunt took over and it became a small dinner than santa and small gifts for the kids. Then it moved to my grandmas house, bigger dinner bigger gifts for the kids, Then a few years after my grandparents passed it moved from house to house, Then finally me being the oldest we have had it at our house for 10 years pizza and party food christmas eve a whole house full nieces nephews and their kids, santa comes in his original suit that is from 50 years ago. . The kids all get toys or books . This year if the weather is nice maybe we can have it outdoors by the firepit with hot cocoa will see. My grandma used to do the seven fishes for a long while Hugs

    Oplatki! I know what that is.
    Part of my Slovak and Lithuanian heritage. Christmas Eve dinner was always a big deal.
    No Carp in the bathtub, but I do remember some old folks who did.
    The carp in Slovakia was different from the carp that swim in our lake.

    So many blending of traditions in our family now, drawing on our many different roots to grow a strong new tree.

    That sounds yummy, and doable. I really should start doing herbal teas. My entire year has been off caffeine and I'm proud of myself. Have a great day.
