It's hard to believe that in just a few days it will be Christmas! I've realized that every year when it gets to be the middle of December I get feeling just a tad down. Nothing major, more like blah. SO, I've been finding things that make me feel LESS blah!
Here is my list so far:
Candlelight. Even one candle burning can brighten a room. Today we'll light all four candles on the Advent wreath at supper.
The soft glow of the Christmas trees when I come downstairs early in the morning ( DH has the lights on timers so they are on for a while in the morning as well as the evening). It's so dark at 7 AM that the trees look extra lovely.
Pretty Christmassy tins filled with cookies and fudge. The freezer is full and I've taken to keeping things cool on the porch.
Wishing people a Merry Christmas and seeing them smile as they return the good wishes.
Driving down the streets in the evening and seeing lit up trees in living rooms as well as all the outdoor decorations.
Vintage postcards stuck in the corners of mirrors. Who said you can't have Christmas stuff in the bathroom?
Garlands of Christmas cards ( made with cards from previous years, too lovely to throw away!)
Watching A Child's Christmas in Wales like we do every year.
Fruit cake. I've never understood why there are jokes about fruit ( Christmas) cake. I love it. Mind you, I've only had homemade ones. Maybe the bought ones are not good.
That's my list so far. How about you? How are you coping this Christmas season?
Thanks for visiting. I wish each one of you a blessed Christmas and a wonder-filled New Year.
