We finished the last of the mantles today. We made Christmas arrangements, set up Amaryllis gifts, picked up containers for Christmas Eve flowers, tried to salvedge a crate of paper whites that had fallen over, and failed. We welcomed regular customers who shopped for last minute gifts and bouquets for their Christmases, we enjoyed visits by previous employees who came to wish us well and say hello to
the rabbits and catch up with their news and ours. We drank hot lemon water, ate roasted squash and pumpkin soup, a few cookies and we started the morning with Burdick's hot chocolate demis.
We're open tomorrow from noon to five and Christmas Eve from ten to five. We're closed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We'll be open on Friday and Saturday and then I'm going back to The Circus for my left knee replacement. I'll be blogging while convalescing and we'll be back on January 16. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and a winter without ice.
