 Everyone is clearly going to be far too full to eat anymore tonight! But you are welcome to warm up at  my Chateau in Bremagne for the night. In the morning at the great table in the great Hall, we'll have a sumptuous seasonal breakfast, with croissants, cream puffs and both sweet and savory eclairs, smoked salmon, fresh cheeses and scrambled eggs, all prepared by my chef. The menu will also feature hot chocolate, tea and coffee and fresh oranges from the Southern ports of bremagne Naturally, I'll welcome everyone's help decorating my Great Hall following breakfast.

For our northern celebration, please dress warm.  Toque, mittens and scarves are the best. 

The portal signature is a loon, and you will hear its call when you arrive at the cottage on the lake.  Step inside and warm yourself by a 1940ís stone fireplace (now propane to befit modern times).  Dinner will be more like breakfast:  blueberry or buckwheat pancakes, pea meal back bacon, and true Canadian maple syrup.  There will be Niagara wine and northern craft beers (who says beer is not for breakfast)!  And butter tarts for dessert;  raisin, pecan or plain Ė all with savoury brown sugar. 

The bonfire will be lit by the lakeshore (though the lake is frozen by now).  Toasted marshmallows on a stick.  Watch as the stars come out, and with luck, we may see the northern lights.

As the moon rises, look across the lake; silhouetted against the night, you might see the majestic Christmas moose.

The fresh warm bread with honey butter and the chochlate covered strawberries will most definitly bring me to your portal stone doorway. Can not wait.

For the St. Johns River element of the celebration, the red-and-gold bells on the door in front of the Portal square will tell you that you have arrived at the right place.  The Portal signature itself is a golden-tan tabby cat playing with a catnip mouse.  She will meow to announce your presence, and feel free to pet her.  She likes meeting new people.

The weather here is in the 60's F (about 18 C), but after sundown it will likely be closer to 55 F (13 C).  Dress for your own comfort.

There will be homemade bread with softened butter (both plain and honey butter), homemade tomato soup, Tex-Mex shredded chicken, an Italian-style bean, tomato, and spinach stew, plus green beans seasoned with small pieces of crisp bacon.  For dessert, there will be chocolate-covered strawberries that were macerated in Prosecco before being coated with the chocolate, banana bread, and snickerdoodles.  Possibly also chocolate chip cookies, if I get around to baking them.  :)

We will not be decorating the house or a tree because of the aforementioned cat (who has a tendency to turn ornaments into pucks for Cat League hockey), but feel free to bring any food or beverages you would like to bring.

ETA a photo of the bread when I had just taken it out of the oven yesterday evening.

What a wonderful idea Laurna.

And that tea looks utterly scrumptious.

Progressive Holiday

Let us travel each day during the holiday season to the different home of a gracious host or hostess of the Rhemuth Castle{Time Portaling and universe Portaling is an option}. For each day to follow would everyone like to join in. Tell us what the event is and what is on the menu. Give us the time of day that we should arrive and an idea what to wear, and Please give a full description of your Portal Stone Signature. Donít want anyone to become lost in our travels.

I will start our Progressive Holiday on the West Coast in California

For this Sunday afternoon, please let me invite you all to a Californian Victorian Tea Luncheon.

We will be trimming the Grand Noble Fir at 2:00pm. {Please do your calculations for Pacific Standard Time.} The Silver tipped branches of the Fir are well layered in the old fashioned style and the ornaments of glass and silk are plenty.  They just await your touch to make them shine within the boughs of the evergreen. 

Our 1892 home is decked out if holiday fashion. The dining room is set for an Afternoon Tea at 4:00pm.

On the menu:
 A selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches: 
            Kelsonís chicken and cranberry salad,
            Denisís Egg salad with cress
            Duncanís Cucumber and butter
 Savouries include:
            Cassan Mushroom lemon dill tartlets
            Lendour Bacon wrapped asparagus
            Corwyn tea tarts
 Fresh baked warm scones will be served of Blueberry, Pecan and Orange poppyseed.
 Served with fruit preserves, imported clotted cream and lemon curd, also newly discovered Key Lime curd that is most sumptuous.
 Cake and sweets will be a plenty
 Hot teas and Champagne

Suggestion of what to wear? Hum let us see.  The weather is expected to be most fine. A cool sunny 65F. The house is warmed. The craftsman fireplace and mantel will be lit for visual joy and to warm your fingers. We recommend semi formal attire, Victorian ensemble is most welcome, but please no hoops{The house is just not that big.} Please bring a wrap, as the Portal stone is outside and though your arrival may be fine and sunny, the evening departure may be a bit chill.

As to the HorseFeather Portal Signature. We have put a small Portal to be found at my home. No more than three persons arrival at any time. Two will have room to spare. The unique signature is an image of long black horse-hair manes  and blue peacock tail feathers. And yes the birds will sing{scream} out announcing your arrival.  Donít be surprised when you arrive between the junipers, with the butterfly Koi fish pond before you. Please donít step off the portal stone until you have found your equilibrium. I donít want to have to pull anyone out of the fish pond.

I've had to delay him a couple of times, but he's coming tomorrow afternoon.  I'm going to have to work late tonight and probably get up at an insane hour tomorrow to get everything ready for him.  Thanks to whoever invented Ibuprofin!

Great scene Laurba. Poor Ratharkan always seems to get the worst of these battles. It was set a afire in the first Mearan rebellion. Can't think the people of Ratharkan would have any good feelings about the rebels. Anxious to see what happens next . Hope Kelson's orders reach everyobe soon. Fiona is not very patient. She will want to go with those freeing the manor, even if Jaxom is leading. Could see some clashes there..
