Did you hear a contented sigh a few minutes ago? That was me settling into the big chair in the living room and basking in the glow of Christmas lights.
We're really only about 75% there with the decorating. We can't find the remote that turns on the outside (very meager) lights. The top quarter of the (artificial, obviously, but beautiful nonetheless) Christmas tree still needs to be lit and attached. The tree needs to be decorated. The boxes need to go back downstairs. But we've got a good start on things.
For the next six weeks or so, this living room will be my favorite place in the house. I will happily read Christmas book after Christmas book by the light of the tree, listen to carols, and enjoy the Santas and snowmen and the Willow Tree Nativity I love.
