On the third day of Christmas....

On the third day of Christmas we had more snow!

A lovely reprise of our Christmas dinner,
with two new candles that we were given
this Christmas!

I love the light of candles ... 
part of the truth of Christmas:
in the bleak winter,
light has come.

I've been loving using our Christmas dishes!

We had a bit of ice cream with chocolate with orange sauce
for dessert.

And we opened a few of our presents...
A Chesterton book and a Goudge book!

Which Goudge book?
Girls Gone By Press have just reprinted "Henrietta's House" and "Sister Of The Angels" :-)

Wonderful, all of it, but especially the books at the end! The Joy of the Snow is a fascinating look into her life and I've re-read it several times over the years, always seeming to find something more. Enjoy!

PS: If you have trouble finding Henrietta's House, it was also published as The Blue Hills (in case you didn't already know that).
