The Days After Christmas

The best time of the season is between Christmas and New Years.
For me it is finally time to be quiet and content at home by the fire.

Christmas is very different now with my parents gone and most of the family in different states.

Pog and I had a nice day with his oldest daughter who came for the afternoon. We made pizza and had Pog’s chocolate silk pie. My son had the flu and couldn’t come so I will spend New Year’s Day with him.

The mountain is frosted over this morn and the wind is fierce. It is a good day to stay by the fire quilting or working on my new jigsaw puzzle.

Pog made cinnamon rolls yesterday so a cup of coffee and a roll is in order for my afternoon snack!

I hope you are warm and cozy where ever you are today!


  1. i couldnt agree more! i love all the goodwill and merriment of the season leading up to christmas, but the cozy stillness of the week after is heaven.

  2. Yummy cinnamon rolls! Sounds like a perfect day...stitching by the fire...enjoy!

  3. Hope your son gets better quickly.

    Sounds like a perfect kind of day, we have a light dusting, but cold temps, more up on the mountains too. I loved those photos, the rolls look delicious.

  4. It is a peaceful time isn't it?
    Yout Christmas sounded very nice -I'm sorry you couldn't spend it with your son - but New Years is a great time to celebrate with family.

  5. Forgot...those rolls look absolutely fantastic

  6. Christmas here with no "little ones" is different too. The fire looks so inviting and I would love one of those cinnamon rolls! For now I will just have coffee and a caramel. I too am going to spend some time relaxing for the next few days. Enjoy yourself!

  7. Children are the true spirit of Christmas. I am blessed to have both my parents and a new grandbaby. How wonderful it was to once again assemble toys on Christmas Eve. I count my blessings each and every day. A wood fire, good book, cup of hot chocolate, equals a perfect day. Oh, and one of those delicious cinnamon rolls to top it off. Happy New Year to you and yours. Greetings from snowy Maine, Julie.

  8. Those cinnamon swirls looks delicious. Makes me want to make some tomorrow.
    I love wood stove heat especially when it's cold outside. There's something comforting about it.
    I hope that your son is feeling better soon.
    I love the quiet of after all the hustle and bustle is over and I can really enjoy my Christmas decorations until after the Epiphany on Jan 6th.
    The snow is swirling in the wind tonight and it's cold.
