The Magical City of Scott
This morning the village looked like this
with villagers going about their Sunday morning routine . . .
And this afternoon
The pile of boxes was brought back inside
and the Magical City of Scott
was put back in those boxes!
To await next December
and another appearance!
And after lugging all those boxes to the garage
And a good sweep
The breakfast room has returned to normal!
The centerpiece, a piece of lace and the wee poinsettia from the Guest Room
(we always have flowers for Sarah whenever she comes home)
for it is, after all, still Christmas
(The Tenth Day, actually)
The Magical City of Scott spends 11 months of the year in a corner of the garage
And it was chilly today
Twelve trips to the garage with a bin
(for when you take them back outside, it's one box at a time!)
And that makes for a chill on the inside as well as the outside!
A pot of Harney's Hot Cinnamon Tea
and the updated Grandma's Raisin Cookies
that I baked after church
The tray with my "God Jule" towel
A gift from some dear Swedish friends, Eric and Anna
I love the red and white with the blue and white of the transfer ware
Updated raisin cookies because they're not made with raisins but rather dried cranberries!
Small cookies, as tea cookies should be, and the cranberry is so in tune with the season!
It's nice to have the breakfast room back!
We'll have breakfast out there tomorrow morning!
I can hardly wait!
