If not, a more traditional version would bring the holiday spirit to this beautiful home in the twinkle of an LED light.
In the meantime, in Coeur d'Alene, some winter images to dream of the Blog Cabin by....
'Twas some weeks before Christmas, inside the White House
All the folks were so busy, there was no time to grouse
Decorations were hung from every mantel and tree
For millions of dreamers to watch on HGTV
The viewers were nestled all snug in their seats
With hot cocoa to drink and all kinds of good treats
Family and friends were gathered closely around
While the music of Christmas added holiday sound
And then in a twinkling, or so it would seem
Smiling right there before us, as if in a dream
Who to our wondering eyes should appear
But Genevieve Gorder, to the crowd's boisterous cheer
From Red Room, to Green Room and on to the Blue
All the decorations were glittering in every seasonal hue
From the Oval Office to arches and the South portico too
Joy to the season ringing from every angle and view
Yes, it's Christmas again in Washington D. C.
But all 'cross the country most folks would agree
When all's said and done, it was a magical sight
So thank you to all, and to all a good night
I hope we'll get updates on all those great discoveries along the way, and some side notes about the inevitable travel challenges that pop up when least expected.
Enjoy Christmas in Budapest, and Happy New Year on your way to Bali, where the tropical weather, despite the likely rains, will surely make you want to dally!
In this case, I'm tempted to go with your suggestion of a rustic bread board as a background for ALL kinds of freshly baked warm breads and plenty of real butter, for although they say "one cannot live by bread alone," I think I could be quite happy trying to prove them wrong!
