It has been awhile since we've enjoyed a white Christmas. I'm loving every minute of it.
What enjoyment I find in baking and cooking my favorite sweets, marveling at the beautiful blanket of white everywhere!
The smell of gingerbread and chocolate envelope me with a warm, inviting smell; while my pine-scented Angel candles fill my living room.
During the summer, a neighbor and I watched squirrels gather branches, laboring up and down a plush, green tree outside my window while building a nest. We patiently watched that production for over a hour, amazed at the intricacy of their work.
I look outside, my eyes glance at the nest, it stands there today -the squirrels are nowhere in sight- icicles dangling from snow-covered branches. A stark contrast to the empty nest.
A noisy flock of birds signal their flight over head. They form a perfect "A" formation as they pass.
Billy Bob Thornton's "Bad Santa" is on the flat screen and all is well within my world...
I'm at peace....at least for just today.
