As this year draws to a close and another draws to a close, I’d like to wish you all a merry, merry Christmas/Yule and wonderful blessings for the New Year. See you then!

I had such a lovely day on Tuesday. A little and well needed respite from all work I’ve been doing. It was sort of like a finale to it all, like when you have a party at the end of semester when all your finals are finally, finally over! For my ‘party’ me and some family went to Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios. We saw dolphins:

Watched them frolic in the sun with their trainers:

Enjoyed the beautiful sea (including jet boat ride):

And after many pictures some good others not so good, a dolphin encounter experience, late lunch, browsing in the gift shops and watching the waves on the ocean it was time to go and leave our gentle friends behind – a wonderful day indeed.

What a week it has been. Suffice to say I’m one tired little bunny and some rest is most certainly needed. Most of my time has been spent over at Enchanted Angels, changing this, refining that… Sometimes I wonder when it will all end and things will just be as they truly need to be – sort of settling snugly into the right spot the way Chloe does when she wants to take a nap. I know it all makes sense though, that there is a wonderful plan and purpose to it all and that all I need do is sway along gently with it like a swan on gentle lake waters. Perhaps I’m feeling a little poetic I think. I know this much though: That each new thing, trial, attempt helped me in the end, because now I can say, “this is me, that is not” and so and so.

Soon to come are lovely flowers and healing creations from my little garden here at Flower Childe Cottage – those will be here for next Spring. Now is a time for going in and resting because I’ve done so much this year. Did I tell you about my angel book for the little ones? I finished it some weeks ago and soon I’ll have some cover art I think. Meanwhile I’m busy making my list and checking it maybe once because I’m rather pooped, but handmade they probably will all be. Hubbykins asked me what I wanted for Christmas this year, mostly books I told him, maybe this bag I think or perhaps that pendant. I couldn’t decide. He only smiled and said, “let’s see what I can do?” So sweet that one, so sweet…
