Christmas 2010

Christmas is over for another year; there’s just New Year’s Eve to get through now. That makes it sound like it’s something to be endured, doesn’t it? I don’t mean it that way, but I’ll be honest, this isn’t my favourite time of the year.

That said, this Christmas has been a quiet one, relaxing and peaceful. Allow me to share a few images from Christmas here, Chez Skae.

bunsI baked on Christmas Eve. The buns were shared with our neighbours; we kept a half dozen and each of the other three tenants received a half dozen. One neighbour, on hearing that I’d made them, commented that they even looked like “real dinner buns”! Another neighbour simply salivated!

xmas walk The weather was gorgeous, hovering around freezing, but sunny. it was perfect for a nice, long walk while the turkey was cooking. We walked for about an hour and a half. By the time we were headed back home, this is sort of how we felt…

snowmen…A little tired, but happy.

xmas dinnerAnd then, we feasted. Amazingly, even after that long walk and working up an appetite, neither of us could eat even half of what was on our plates. We’ll be eating turkey for weeks to come!


  1. Very generous of you to share with your neighbors. The bread looks delicious!

    I haven't tried the KnitPicks Gloss. Sounds like you are enjoying it.

  2. The reactions that homemade bread gets can be quite funny. For some reason it seems to amaze people that it is possible to make it rather than buy it at the store!

    Your Christmas feast looks delicious. Happy New Year!
