Christmas is coming - the goose is getting fat -- says so right here:
That also means that Boywonder's birthday is just around the bend! I know all of this mentally, but I just don't feel it yet! I'm ready, willing - but apparently not able. Yet. Anyone else in the same boat? Let's try and get there together, shall we?
The Saints are feeling it -- one of them is donning a Santa hat .... this made me laugh outloud.
Feeling it, yet?
Holiday music, especially live, usually gets me right in the spirit... you?
And then there is that intoxicating, earthy fragrance of evergreens -- I need to get out and get my cedar garlands - simple garlands, faerie lights casting their warm gilded and soft light - maybe some antique sleigh bells ... and candles - lots and lots of candles ... and some antique german glass glitter ... in burnished gold... Okay I'm starting to feel it.
If you're not feeling it yet, maybe some traditional Christmas dancing of Olde?
But in all seriousness - one of the things I love most is to drive around at night this time of year and look at the lights - especially on the water. The sweet, simple lights -- it most definitely puts me right into the spirit of the holidays.
This is my kind of Christmas lighting - serene, ethereal ... magical. (and in France!) Not too much glitz and glitter, but just the right amount of sparkle. Perfection, really.
