Christmas preparation has begun

What are you thankful for?
“Suddenly there came a tapping, as of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.” I looked up to see a blue jay pecking at our sliding glass door. “Only this, and nothing more.” I laughed as Poe’s words came to mind.

Soup was highlight of day
