I should say Three Important Things!
First of all, yesterday was the first official day of winter! Down here the weather isn't bad until sometime next month so we don't feel the cold as much but still, it's winter! DH has an issue with the long dark nights as time approaches the winter solstice. So he was very elated to see yesterday come. Gradually life for him will be better as the nights are shorter. I don't think he could handle living in Alaska, at least not in winter. Of course, I don't see him handling snow and ice that well either long
term!! I'm not so big on real winter either. I'm spoilt having lived in Tennessee so many years now!
Secondly, it's almost Christmas!! It's one of my favorite times of year. I love the lights on the tree in the evenings.
It feels good to have that done. Now it's time for wrapping a few presents and maybe even, shock of all, bake a few cookies. This year has been so different. I'm not thinking about shopping or worrying about getting the right thing for family and friends. It's been a season of trying to help my in laws with the house. My mother in law had good taste and found some pretty neat things to use for sewing, laces, fabrics, buttons,pins, etc. As the recipient of alot of her stash, I'm well stocked with supplies. Anyone need some children's buttons?
Until next week, Merry Christmas!!
