Day No.6 – Happy Holidays

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday filled with warmth, good food, and contentment. I found myself missing the familiar holiday celebrations. My Grandmother decorates the house with over 200 Santas (yes, 200 – I counted them a few years back and she adds more every year…), my cats have their little holiday feast and a toy cat-stravaganza, and the family has a celebratory gift opening followed by Champagne. That said, I was very welcome here and enjoyed the family’s tradition of having a breakfast Brandy Alexander! I may keep that one.
