Never so happy to be back in my nest as I am right now.
I ventured out to Target this afternoon and was literally stuck in my parking spot. The cars were lined up and down each aisle and nobody was moving. Eventually a man showed up to patrol traffic in one particularly congested area and we slowly made our way out of that maze of a parking lot.
It has occurred to me that I am most likely talking to myself here tonight as we are all scurrying around in these last days leading up to Christmas. However, after the craziness of that parking lot, I am content to sit here and babble for awhile.
Tomorrow the baking and cooking marathon will begin.
No more trips to the store are needed. Hooray!!
How are your plans shaping up?
It has gotten cold here and the wind was whipping today.
The chances for that White Christmas I was dreaming about are still pretty remote, however.
I decided to bring a bit of a snowy feeling to my dining room hutch. I clipped a few sprigs of cedar and added them to a white bowl along with some pine cones that I spray painted white and covered in glitter.
Snowflakes and icicles were mixed with milk glass and snowy branches to create my winter wonderland.
Not quite the same as the real thing,
but at least there is no shovelling involved.
I'm off to do some reading now.
I'm thinking of you all and hope you are finding joy in this busy season.
