Happy Epiphany!
Masterpiece Monday ~ Downton Abbey Season 3 Premiere!

A Kings' Cake ...

For Three Kings Day ...

Kings cake
... with a "crown" of 12 stars for the 12 days of Christmas!

By tradition, I believe a Kings' Cake is a yeasty, citrusy, ring-shaped concoction - but ours is plain old chocolate and vanilla. A nice Sunday dinner dessert.


Well, I hope you've all had a nice weekend. We took the older boys to see The Hobbit this afternoon, and oh my goodness was it wonderful! For a very long movie, it ended before I was ready for it to be over! Happily there are two more installments to come.

And tonight of course we have - not only the return of Once Upon a Time BUT ALSO - the premiere of Downton Abbey season three! Remember all those months ago how we all bemoaned the horrible long wait for DA to return? And now the night is here at last. I'm about to take a power nap so I might be able to stay up late enough to watch!

But I'll be back tomorrow morning with a "Masterpiece Monday" post, so we can talk about our thoughts on both DA and OUaT. Until then I thank you for stopping by and I wish you all a very pleasant Sunday night ...

See you all again very soon!
