the littlest day.

December 21, 2013


We are in the studio today doing wood working…. this man child and I .  We work shoulder to shoulder creating gifts…consulting each other on if it is just right.

We are in the kitchen today…making gingerbread… and hot cocoa and bee fondant….and God willing I will make lemon curd!

With all this bustling about… this roly poly baby is getting a lot of quality time with read alouds.  She will have heard the whole Little House on the Prairie series before her first birthday…thanks to her most adoring sister.

We will be in the bee yard today… because it’s 55* out and we want to make sure these bees are fed fondant for the icy months ahead.

We will be in the forest today… because it is the shortest day!  So we will be out singing and walking like we do every year!

Here on this tiniest of days… we are capturing every second and getting last minute things done.  I love celebrating this littlest day.. because from here on out.. the days will get longer as we march through the icy months into Spring.

    Really enjoyed this slice of your life, and of the year (tiny slice). Good thought to hold: how every day will now grow longer with light. A blessed Christmas to you and yours!

      you asked about the soup last time… I have the chicken curry recipe here on my blog...
      but this time I had made some roasted honey, ginger carrots the night before… so early on in the prep of the soup i took the leftovers and put them in…and then “shuuzzed” the whole mess with the immersion blender…then continued making the soup with chicken and such.
      Merry Christmas to you!

    Love it. Everyone so content and so merry. Margot’s middle name is Day and my nickname for her has always been “the littlest day”

    Hi T, I am always so inspired and encouraged by your blog posts. The way you celebrate the everyday wonders as well as the bigger milestones in life inspires me greatly. I often think about the phrase you use, ‘you are what you celebrate’ and it reminds me that everyday, there is so much to celebrate : )
