to love–right this minute.
The big and small helpers that make up our Christmas light brigade. Such stalwart souls in the 17 degree outdoors. Brrrrr…
The sweet, ancient ornaments that come out this time of year and are handled so tenderly so that somehow they will last forever.
The Christmas bowls that magically appear and are quickly dubbed the “only way to eat cereal in December” by the male population of the household.
The indoor lights that are left to me and my packaging tape. I know there’s a better way to hang the crazy things in the window…but…you know…old dog…new tricks…and all that.
The crochet hooks and Peaches and Cream yarn that seem to be fused to my hands these days. Not a spare minute can be wasted–so much to sew and only 11 more days to do it in! Yikes!!
The lovely Christmas countdown chain–from Somebody’s Stuff–that was made to be torn away each day but is far too pretty to meet such a fate. So it just hangs around and makes us very happy.
The trees that seem to be trying–with all their might to get into the spirit of the season.
The snow that obediently fell when April stomped her foot and declared that she “must have snow for her birthday!” Now that’s power.
The brand-new stocking for the brand-new sweetheart in our world–made with the very last scrap of red sock velor, that I’ve held on to for some strange reason…all these years.
It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
Please tell me~
what Christmasy things do you love right this minute?
