Christmas Morning has a rhythm in my family that never changes: breakfast first, then presents. And then chores, because there are always chores on a farm.
Our special Christmas breakfast this year sadly lacked in the usual bacon due to poor planning on our part, but at least we had left over bacon grease we’d saved for scrambled eggs! We also had a fresh fruit salad, and two kinds of homemade breakfast breads, along with the usual tea for me and Mum, and coffee for Dad.
Post-present-opening, I noticed a slight “British Invasion” theme had unintentionally happened… Unsurprisingly, I’m quite okay with that!
As always, there were new ornaments among the gifts — including this carved flying pig from Indonesia. It seems appropriate, in a double meaning kind of way, because Dad calls his part of the farm “Hog Heaven”.

Mum hard at work in the back room, finishing her first book. It’s going to be about our farm, and how we use the Korean Natural Farming Method; basically, the long version of a farm tour, complete with photos (some of which I took!). This photo was taken for the 16th of June, for those of you keeping track of how far behind I am on my posts…
As of today — the Summer Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere — she has finished writing, editing, and formatting, and is now waiting for the first proof to be sent from the self-publishing branch of Amazon.
I’m so proud of her for being a soon-to-be published author! Keep your eyes open for later updates about “Hubbell’s Hog Heaven & Liz’s Happy Hens: A Farm Tour. Korean Natural Farming In Pahoa, Hawaii.” By Elizabeth Cannon.
