December Dailies

In 2007 I took part in Holidailies where everyone tried to post a blog every day during December. I can not find a 2010 Holidailies project so I am attempting my singular attempt at December Dailies, which, considering I post just maybe a couple of times a year these days is a tad ambitious. Nevertheless, here I am, grateful for the year that has been for me so far and wanting to post some updates and tidbits.

December the first and my beloved advent calendars are out and the star is above the manger on one, and one of Santa's helpers stands waiting in Santa's grotto on the other. Yesterday snow fell and lay all about here and as I did not have any college or clients to run off to I ended up decorating the house for Christmas. It looks gorgeous with its pencil thin tree (saves on space) touching the ceiling bedecked with silver, grey, glass and mirror baubles graduating from medium size to tiny ones at the top, paper chains around the walls and fairy lights twinkling along the bookshelves. Scrooge of years gone by has gone and I am happy.

More snow this morning and I am rather cautious about my early morning trip to college and our cute country roads. It is fingers crossed, blankets packed in the car along with supplies and hopefully a hazard free trip.

A happy December to you.

Doris, it's so good to see you back again! It sounds as if you are in a good place. Now all you have to do is keep safe and warm.

I decorated my home on Sunday, but we haven't put our tree up yet. Still, I have a collection of Santa Claus's that I absolutely LOVE.
It's so nice that you are blogging, if only for 31 days - I'll take it! I'm very thankful we've reconnected.

Thank you Anji - you are such a sweetie. You are right that I am in a much better place than I have been for such a long time. It is not perfect yet but waaaay better. And may you keep safe and warm too.

Dear Diane - hugs to you too :-) A collection of Santa Claus's sounds fun and well, large! You are one of my original blog friends and that is longer than some marriages!!

Sweet Debbie - thank you too. We are all growing and changing and it is good to be able to stop and acknowledge all that there is to be grateful for. Peace and love to you and yours too.

Hugs to you all and thank you for the lovely welcome back! It is a note to self to actually remove comment moderation especially when I do not have email alerts attached to it. Doh!
