Christmas 2009


Merry, Merry from Texas!

I hope everyone had a delightful Christmas Day. This longhorn resides above my close friend's mantel year round, but is always decked out in special holiday greens this time of year. So I thought you might like to see a little Texas Christmas humor for Pink Saturday. I don't think Beverly will mind since she said we could "fudge" a little during the holidays.

But just to be on the safe side, have a peppermint almond macaroon before you leave. They're filled with chocolate mousse, and oh so delicious! And they are perfect for a Pink Saturday!!!

Please do leave me a comment before clicking yourself over to Beverly's @ How Sweet the Sound.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.

  3. Happy Pink Saturday, Sarah. I must admit the longhorn looks not only quite festive, but lovely, too. Do you think a longhorn would mind being called lovely?

    Now about those macaroons. I would like one right now to have with my coffee.

  4. Wonderful PINKS and tasty treats too! Love the longhorn. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Happy Pink Saturday ;-)
