Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now we move into Christmas. I enjoyed the holiday with my family, even if the 20 or so people was a bit overwhelming, it was a jolly time, and worth the three day post holiday clean-up!
Now, the quiet days before Christmas, if we can fathom that. I don't proscribe to all of the crazy holiday shopping, etc. I prefer to do things a little more slowly, and to give gifts from the heart, like home-made gifts, etc. Plus, one really nice-store bought gift!
So, in the quiet late-Autumn, early Winter landscape...the frigid, frosty days and nights have been giving some very serene and lovely little vignettes for me to absorb, like the one above.
