Here are some photos of our Christmas decorations this year. The photos serve as reminders of what worked and what didn't for future planning. Here's the entryway table. Here are photos of the living room decorations. Here is a photo of the dining room sideboard. And here is the baker's rack in the kitchen.
We celebrated our birthdays in fine style this year, with a weekend in Destin! We stayed at the Sandestin Hilton, where we've stayed before, and it was great. The weather cooperated (after an arrival in driving rain), and we enjoyed walking on the beach, shopping, and eating some wonderful meals.
We have had a fun summer, with several visits from Eleanor and Thomas. They especially enjoyed "swimming" in the pool. Eleanor and her mom went to Boston when we did, and we enjoyed sightseeing together -- and riding the T!
You've heard of The Young and the Restless? And The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, the story of my life would have to be called The Dull and the Dutiful. No one would buy my autobiography, as I had a happy childhood, married a terrific man, and have two brilliant and delightful adult children and three adorable (and brilliant) grandchildren. Oh, and I have just retired from a long career in higher education!
