Tomorrow is December! Yippee! Our realtor (from over 20 years ago-we haven't done any house buying since then) left us a poinsettia. Bill sent Christmas roses and greens to me at school (so sweet!). So, it's a flowery Christmas season already. No decorating has taken place at this cozy house. Soon.
I finally met an M & M product I don't like! Miracle! These are the pretzel M & M's. Have a handful?
Let's tip the polka dot teapot. Do you want some? I do hope you have time for warm beverages this holiday season.
Susan Branch does it up big when it comes to calendar pages. Last month! Can that really be? Do you think 2012 went by terribly fast? I do.
I thought a look at a bear face might cheer you. Maybe because my maiden name has a Bere in it, I really LOVE bears. I keep my teddy bear (this is a secondary bear pictured above) near our bed and sometimes when I'm messing around looking for shoes that I've scattered there, I pick up my bear and squeeze him and smooch him. I say, "I love you, Edward." I bought him quite a few years ago after having my own personal Winnie the Pooh read-a-thon. I was on a mission: find an Edward Bear for cuddling and loving. I found one at the Hallmark store. He's floppy and soft. Just now he has on a pair of koala printed corduroy overalls that were Bill's when he was a baby. I believe in stuffed bear hugging.
No decorating yet, but the books have been carried up from the basement. Fine reading.
Once again I am participating in Floss's A Pause in Advent. I will post on Sunday. If you pop over to Troc, Broc, and Recup
you can join in. You'll meet VERY nice people, I promise. Yes, it's time to light the lights.
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned . . .
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
