Our yule log this year is covered in slivered almonds. It took a while but it didn't matter with Clara's company. We thought it turned out rather well. It is fun to see that I have been getting better at this little tradition. Here are the previous four years. 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012. We shared this with the Andersons.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
