We are counting the days now until the winter solstice arrives and the days begin to get longer again. We are lucky to live in a mild winter climate, but nightfall comes so early.
But a small candle glow warms even the greyest morning. (I'm still passively searching for my lighted garland to lay over the mantel.)
I probably never would have gotten to unpacking the Dickens' Village this year. But it is a favorite of the children and my eager spouse who set it all up.
And a couple of nests were added to the twiggy tree to round out the ambience.
I hope you are also enjoying a few quiet moments in this busy season!
Best Christmas Wishes!
