My favorite part of the day now is when dusk falls and the house turns into a warm and cozy Christmasy place to be. One thing about your better half being super into technology, is that they love to get gadgety with just about everything, so most of my christmas lighting is on timers. It just click, comes on. Which is nice, when you're huge and tired but like some ambiance.
This is our first Christmas here in the new old house. First of many, I know. In this house our family will grow and I am so excited to see what the new year will bring us. But til then, I am ready to settle down into winter and enjoy the slowness and quietness-- even the bleakness can be beautiful if you look for it.
They say cold and ice is headed our way. I've already started a pot of white chili in the crock pot and bought the most luscious yarn at Loops the other day, so there will be tons of tiny hat making on the horizon.
I hope where ever you are, a cozy Christmas evening awaits you. Less than a week for the big day, can you believe it? Santa's on his way.....
