Joy at Christmas:: a birthday

I'm so happy to have the cake 
and the plate
 and the kiddo who wants to decorate
 even when she's called out of bed

as we celebrate 
one we love so very dearly

before and through the Christmas holiday


We continue to celebrate the day you were born my Dear.

Joy at Christmas:: the pomegranate

I do love the sweet and tart beads of fruit peeking out of the beautiful pomegranate.

Perfect in a kale salad.

Perfect on the plate.

And a long-standing family tradition. I can recall purple fingers for days when I was a kid.

My 85 year old mom loves this new technique and seeds every one from her tree. Then she shares them with her pastor! Mom, bring them by!
