Once again, PM's Chronicler has been remiss in her duties. But Chronicler and all her alter egos wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! This space will soon be filled with more exciting musings, but for now, enjoy your holidays!
Emeralda, the 2012 tree, "breathes" in the hovel. Then she gets some lights. Then ornaments and tinsel. And she becomes the most beautiful tree in New York!
Mom's favorite bird was the cardinal, and she had lots of cardinals on the family Christmas tree. I always tried to put her special ones at the top of the tree. This cardinal is for her.
This snow man ornament just makes me happy! Every now and then my eyes find him on the tree and I just have to smile.
And the newest ornaments, the blue egg and the purple egg, of course represent renewal, but they also represent a very sweet sale at Macy's! Glittery and gorgeous, they surround the golden egg ornament from last year.
Join Chronicler as she sings carols around Emeralda, the 2012 Christmas tree now proudly ensconced in the hovel. Chronicler, PM, Alabaster, Peppermint Paunch, Rudy, Lapis, Geranium and all the other Christmas Crew wish you and yours the very Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest of New Years!
And after you've checked out the tree, you might want to read (or reread) the last Saga, the one that covered Christmas 2004 and 2005. Catch a Christmas Starfly, the Quest for the Ancient Monster is ever so exciting, and you can read it here.
Catch a Christmas Starfly, The Quest for the Ancient Monster, The PM Saga, Book XXVII: In which Alabaster sets to work on the "Missing Link Project." The Starflies spread the light and love.
