December 22, 2014


What a beautiful solstice celebration! This year we're playing with the holidays, looking for what fits just right. We moved our big turkey dinner to the winter solstice and it was delightful. It was a gentle day full of cooking and good food, sitting back in front of movies and enjoying good company. The weather was crisp but clear and I made sure to go outside and connect to the night and the cold. A beautiful winter celebration.


Okay this Christmas vignette has a bit of Halloween crossover with the owl coming out to play. Who says owls don't love Christmas too?


Reg and I had a wonderful weekend hanging out mostly at home to avoid the crowds but did go play D&D last night. That's me falling through a window onto a woman who run an orphanage, killing her. It just got worse from there. I may have to buy new dice because I can't seem to roll more than a 1 anymore.

Time for new dice! Although, what were you trying to do when you fell out a window? I love your crazy style of D&D Suzie! Fearless!

Suzie Ridler said...

Oh I love the owl! And I agree, I think they love Christmas too Shannon.

That's what Reg wanted me to do, buy new dice, LOL.

My character was covered in spiders so I wanted to get away and roll in puddle to kill them. Not the best problem solver yet but thanks Shannon. Yes, fearless is a word for it.

I love the owl, Shannon! And the whole vignette. I've loved all your vignettes. What fun!

Ack! Suzie, what a story line! At least you are in the throw of things, very dramatic! No milk toast for Suzie!

(late add for me)

Suzie Ridler said...

Wow, I love that you had a turkey dinner on the winter solstice! :) I think that is beautiful.

No milk toast for me, that's right, LOL.

Gorgeous picture for the winter solstice Jamie! It was delightful to celebrate on the solstice this year and it was a really awesome day. Turkey contentment, /happy sigh.

I love your creative problem solving Suzie! I used to do that in D&D too, but I ah... didn't have much luck with it either. Usually need a really high roll for it to turn out (I didn't realize that til like...last year).
