My excuse for this late post (for which I beg your forgiveness & indulgence) is that it has been a whirlwind of a month, filled with hearty eating & congenial revelry in London. It has been a precious time with adventuresome Older & Younger Daughters, in part with Loving Husband: enjoying catch-up with family & old friends, delighting in the festivities of the season, and welcoming the Christ-child into our midst.
It has been a month of sublime discoveries as we reacquainted ourselves with this vibrant city, all the treasures we find on an almost daily basis, one of which was the Garden of Rest, a little corner of Marlebone High Street, near Marlebone Road (see above Feature Photo). This small garden contains various gravestones & memorials, one of which is to Charles Wesley (1707- 1788), one of the greatest hymn writers, credited with 8,989 hymns (Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing, Christ the Lord is Risen Today).
And of course, there is the food. Whenever we gathered, wherever we went, we sat at the table and broke bread together. Here are some of the December highlights:
Wishing all you lovelies a wonderful 2019 to come!
