After non-stop days of much needed rain for our drought-stricken State, the clouds cleared to views of snow-capped mountains and blue skies for Christmas Eve.
I took this photo while we were in the back yard picking the citrus fruit: oranges, grapefruit, tangerines and lemons. I remember the time when my Father was putting in these saplings ages ago. He had to break through hardpan for each tree. His garden is a living memory of him.
After a late afternoon bike ride, we all were home to make the annual Tamales. In my family, we stay up past midnight making the tamales and end with eating the first cooked batch. My favorites are cheese with jalapenos and cheese with beans and jalapenos. Once it turns midnight, we exchange our presents. I certainly enjoyed sleeping in this morning. I hope everyone is having a lovely Holiday.
