We are having our Christmas dinner today, Wednesday, as we will be away on Christmas day. Our son, Mark, is coming and we are doing something different instead of turkey. We have having steak on the barbeque. There will be potatoes, peas and a tossed salad to go with the steak. A simple meal, but a hearty one on this cold and damp day. I am glad my son is tending the barbecue.
Today is the shortest day of the year then it's all up hill from here. That, my friends, is a good thing, even though we won't really notice the change of longer daylight for a few weeks.
I'm using my Christmas plaid china on red chargers. Do you see the beautiful table runner?
My dear friend, Lois, made this for me for Christmas. I was so thrilled to get it.
Yes, I opened my gift early. :-)
A simple centerpiece of a silver tray, a berry wreath, pinecones and a mercury glass candle stick.
I kept the setting a bit masculine since it's just me, my hubby and my son.
Looking toward the living room.
The small mercury glass holders were given to me by two different friends!
They know my taste.
The amaryllis has 2 huge blooms now and another bud coming too.
I hope you enjoyed our Christmas dinner table. It's not very fancy but
the company and the food are what's important.
