The smell of ginger cookies winds it's way into every corner of the house these days. Our holiday cards have been received by loved ones. The errands are done. Late night knitting sessions by the fire, result in the last stitches. The whir of the sewing machine echoes from the studio. Equal parts wool, wood, and fabric are used to create gifts that get tucked beneath the tree. The arrival of snow and colder temperatures bring wool scarves and snowsuits from closets. The lights twinkle all through the neighborhood. Tomorrow is the children's last day of school and will include an assembly and lots of cookie eating.
The excitement is building. There are many, okay all of us, who can't wait for holiday break this year. Time to play. Time to honor. Time to create and give. Time to sled. Time to wear pajamas all day. Time to work on puzzles while sipping cocoa. Time to be a family.
Yes, I have to say, it's getting mighty festive over here...
How are things in your world?
