Holiday Greetings

The wonderful thing about the Holidays is that is allows us here at Blue Oak Cottage to take a little time off and enjoy each other and our family, near and far. Traveling to visit loved ones and also entertaining at home. Writing Christmas cards, baking cookies,Evie Baking decorating our home, visiting Santa,Santa1 and most of all celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, Immanuel, God With Us. These time honored traditions have all been observed and new memories made that will be cherished.

The garden is still an active part of my days as I used Holly and Ivy from the yard to decorate the table for Christmas dinner. I decorated gift bags of home made goodies with sprigs of Rosemary and Holly too. The “Wild-West Garden” has provided herbs for flavoring soup and stews this week, as preparing yummy leftovers has been at a year end high.

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas traditions and I wish each one of you a Happy New Year!
