As the weak winter sun sank away into the gray mist over Lac Leman in Switzerland, we sought the warmth and glow of Balzac's.
As we waited for our warm drinks, my friend snuggled her daughter, stroking her hair. I smiled. I remember how wonderful it was to hold my daughter in my lap, stroking her smooth, shiny hair. She still asks me to braid it sometimes when she is home from college. I love it.
While my husband worked out our dinner plans on a blackberry, we got ready for hot chocolate.
It's cold this morning here in New England. I wish I had some of that hot chocolate right now! I hope you are enjoying visiting Acorn Pies this Christmas. I might not post any Christmas crafts this year, beyond the pomander ball. Do you really need more to add to your list of to-do's? I just want to share my own feeling calm and peace with you here on Acorn Pies.
