Christmas Eve 2016 treats

Merry Christmas EVERYone! Wow, what a year 2018 has been… Only 3 (now 4) published blog posts, ‘though I’ve had plenty to say (accumulating more incomplete draft posts than ever beforeย ๐Ÿค”

Now for this post, I wanted to link a photo with my last year’s Christmas decor post. And suddenly, there it was. A box of fresh-baked shortbread from our next-door neighboursโ€”uploaded 2 years ago to my WP media folderย ๐Ÿ˜Žย What could make it more perfect? We exchanged Christmas cookies again today ๐Ÿ˜

Life’s funny like that, isn’t it? Sharing is caring and with crumbs to spare! Yup, ’tis better to give than receive… And ’tis better to realize we have what we need… And ’tis no use chasing our “wants” lists… ’cause have you seen those things? They’re endless! Contentment, now that’s something worth wanting!

  2. Beautiful post! And better to get up 4 than none. We do what we can. I agree so much with your thoughts on contentment and would add gratitude to that. They go hand in hand, don’t they? Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

      • Well I am going to make my version of that recipe (later this spring sometime) and experiment !
        Try to use stevia – dark chocolate – and keto friendly ingredients. Wow – they came out so well!
        Anyhow – hope you are having a nice week
