The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year


It's that time of year...
A very Happy December to you, my Dear Readers! I love December. The air is filled with magic and the scent of pine. People are hustling and bustling and wishing you good cheer. It is really and truly the most wonderful time of the year!

This started out as a Happy Weekend post last Friday. But time gets weird in December, and it just never saw the light of day. Instead, the diminishing daylight hours were spent hustling and bustling and brimming with cheer. There were two visits with Santa, wreaths hung in windows, and an annual holiday tradition: Sledwreckers! Presents for dear ones sit waiting to be wrapped, and the teeniest, tiniest tree is ready for strings of lights. The parade of old Christmas movies has begun its march across my TV screen (I watched It's A Wonderful Life for my very first time ever. If I'm being honest, I found it to be a bit of a downer. Think I'll stick with this.).
All that's missing is a sprinkling of snow. After a cold early fall, it's been rather warm here. There are still a few leaves hanging on trees, and the grass is full and green. It may be the first time ever that I went to pick out a tree without the cumbersome burden of a thick and heavy coat. According to the weather man, that should soon change. And I for one have no problem dashing through the snow to get my cards in the mail. It's how it should be, and I look forward to it.
Hope your Holiday Season is shaping up to be a merry one!
