    This was such a lovely post! It makes you feel like your a close friend of Lovina’s and that she might be chatting about her family and holiday as if you met in the market or in town and just stopped to exchange pleasantries. I also get the impression that the holidays are a lot less stressful for the plain people. They prepare special meals, buy and exchange and even hand-make gifts, but it seems so relaxed. It doesn’t even sound like having other large families come visit for entire days frazzles them too much. The cooking and preparations seem so effortless with their wonderful attitudes. Very refreshing I must say.

    What a wonderful way to spend Christmas day. There are no relatives near us, and we didn’t travel to see anyone this year, so it was just the four of us. Very quiet!

    How do you eat a haystack breakfast? Is it all put on a big platter and everyone takes what they want?
