Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from December 22nd at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday December 25th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
If we were having coffee this week I’d invite you to join me for a homemade latte (or drip coffee if you’d like, or tea). I have been playing around with making eggnog lattes, and would be happy to make you one. If you’re an eggnog fan. It does seem like people either LOVE it or HATE it. I fall into the LOVE it category.
Most of my family celebrates Christmas in one form or another, so if you’re joining me today you’ll get to take in some of the festive decorations. One of the perks of living with my mom is that I get to benefit from her holiday decorating — and Christmas is one of those holidays that she does a pretty good job with.
Over the years things have accumulated and evolved — this year we have the Santa Room (it started out as a little Santa Tree, but eventually there were too many to keep contained to a small tree), a window of snowmen and snowflakes, and the regular Christmas tree. Not to mention lights outside. It’s overall pretty festive, which I appreciate!
This year, since my large family is no longer centrally located, the celebrations are somewhat subdued. I’m going to my Dad’s one day for a meal with him and my step-mom. Christmas even I’m actually doing some childcare in the morning, and then might go to a late service that night with my mom — it will depend on how my energy is and if I feel like dragging myself out of the house at that hour. I do love church services during the holidays though, the music and magic of the season really appeals to me.
Christmas day is pretty low key. Mom and I will do some present exchanging, and then my brother and his boyfriend will join us for more present exchanges and dinner. I have to go back to work on Tuesday, so I’m planning on spending Monday evening doing not-much and just relaxing.
Do you celebrate a holiday in the winter? If so, which? And how do you celebrate?
