The pockets of joy came from being able to see so many of my relatives at this time of year and see how much the generations have changed and grown. You know you're old when you think you are talking to a niece only to discover that she's the daughter and her mother is across the room!
Pysanky holiday ornament orders were really up this season -- most surprisingly from Europe and the U.K. So, along with holiday preparations, trips back and forth out-of-state, and filling orders -- and, an incredibly long rainy period here in NC, solar cooking has been very limited and writing this blog almost nonexistent.
But, I did want to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a holiday season filled with lots of solar cooking, warm memories, and a New Year of health, good fortune, and happiness.
