Imitating Mother NaturePosted: December 14, 2012
Yesterday afternoon, as the sun hit the Christmas decorations adorning the yard and home of the neighbor across the street, the sparkle and shimmer reminded me of the morning frost at sunrise. I delighted in the idea that Christmas decorations are a way of imitating Mother Nature’s glitz and glam. You might think I was the first person to think of this idea. You’d be wrong, of course, but you might think it based on how delighted I was with the thought.
Our Very Important People are going to begin arriving this evening. Our wonderful sons, their lovely wives, and our beautiful granddaughters are all coming in for an early Christmas celebration. M and I will put the tree up tonight, wrap the presents, and pile them under the tree. The kids and grandkids can decorate the tree tomorrow.
We’ll exchange gifts tomorrow, too, and have our big Christmas dinner. I’m looking forward to every moment of it, if one can really look forward to a future moment.
I haven’t been out for my walk yet today. I’ll get out there around sunset since I missed the morning golden hour. It’s a pretty day. Chilly, but bright and sunny. Would you believe it’s going to be in the 50’s on Sunday? It’s a little late in the year for that.
Well, I don’t have much more to add. Thank you so much for stopping by. Do you have any plans (big or otherwise) for the weekend?
Wishing you a delightful and magical weekend no matter what your plans (or lack thereof). :)
