The Christmas tree is decorated (has been for a few weeks) and the shopping is almost done. Hopefully I will complete everything by tomorrow evening. We still have four days before the festivities and I am already exhausted. Oh and by the way, the tree ornaments are a sprinkling of old 1950's bird ornaments, glass pine cones and acorns and even glass grapes, wine bottles and adorable little wine glasses.
One of the last things to do is go through the wine closet and find a couple of good bottles to celebrate the holidays with. But it won't be all wine as I will bend the elbow a bit taking part in some hot Tom & Jerry’s spiked with a dash of rum and a dash of brandy. Therefore, I will be taking a holiday break from the blogging machine. I need time to recover from all of the festivities, you know!
I’m including a little gift from Bing and Frank. Yeah, it’s a little schmaltz, but if you can’t have schmaltz at Christmas, when can you? Happy Holidays and I hope that Santa fills a few bare spots in your wine cellar or maybe even drops off that dusty bottle of 1787 Chateau d'Yquem that you've been dreaming about. Cheers!
