Twelfth Night

Just a quick overview of the week...Philip and I arrived home to Indiana on New Year's Day. Aaron and Karen had dinner ready for us which was wonderful after traveling a thousand miles. It was,however, a fast journey as we keep each other great company.

It was back to school for me while Philip has been pouring over his writing. My library is set up so that the two of can work and spread out all of our papers. He gets more writing done here as there are fewer interruptions...actually he has quiet days unless he goes to town to visit with Zach or Rachael.

Tonight we are hosting our Twelfth Night Party, complete with choosing a queen, the reading of poems and stories, the singing of the Twelve Days of Christmas and to finish the evening, Auld Lang Syne. It is a wonderful old custom of which very few celebrate these days.

So, we are busy cooking and baking this afternoon.

Happy Twelfth Night to you.
