Last night the temperature dropped.
We all baked Christmas cookies.
This morning I found two black prince cicadas
on the front fence.
After dropping Emily at work,
I baked potatoes for our big Christmas dinner
at my parents' tomorrow.
I made this stuffing
which smells amazing;
custard and a capoko cake
and was thankful for the cool weather
as I was busy in the warm kitchen.
Santa has just driven by,

... so now it really feels like Christmas Eve!
The turkey is in the oven for our own
(not so) little Christmas Eve Dinner tonight.
Time to set the table,
bake some veges,
light the candles,
and enjoy being together,
all the year's work done.
