To be able to say Christmas was a success feels good. We had two wonderful meals at our house with presents and excellent people to share our holiday with.
First, our brunch on Christmas eve. Our grandkids were so excited about opening presents they hardly ate. We served a huge breakfast and afterward had cheesecake and cookies with coffee. The day was perfect for traveling, (no snow) and everyone seemed to leave with full bellies and new goodies.
Christmas night we had Mom, Cousin Tom, two of my mother's friends - Kathy and Joanne - And my son, Travis. The flank steak was delicious, along with mashed potatoes and homemade hunters gravy, fresh green beans with sliced almonds and rolls. Followed by cheesecake and fresh strawberries or cherry pie and ice cream.
Dinner Christmas night was much more relaxed, (except for the snowy roads) and the house decorations added to the lovely atmosphere. I really enjoyed the company and the food was a bonus.
Chalk up another successful holiday! Now we have a new year upon us with big plans. Two books will be launched, conferences to sell books, classes to teach, and more fans to join us in Djenrye. I sure hope you continue to come along on Stevie's journey and my companion stories of my fantasy world.
Don't forget to sign up on the new website. I will be adding more questions to Djen Talk, the blog, and soon I will have a new cover to show off for Lore. Lots of fun stuff! djenworld.com
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, whether it was Christmas or Hanukkah. I love the time with family and friends and the excellent food, decorations and love.
Have a happy New Year everyone and be safe!
