I can believe that it is December. Sort of, I mean we did almost, or did, hit 60 degrees this Saturday, with another mild week on tap. What I can't believe is that, it is Monday again?!?!?! I'll bet you can guess what two of these pictures this week sums up me today?!? If not for Christmas, December would be a ho hum month you ask me. It's the first month really that truly looks baron outside and all is "asleep" or as I call, all dead and sticky. Thankfully Christmas month comes with just enough beauty of its own, for me...the scent of cedar, boxwoods and pines and balsam pines, as I decorate mostly with them indoors and our fresh wreaths that adorn the doors, and all the woody and pine scented candles help too, along with bright or sparkly baubles of ornaments. I usually look forward to the holidays as it begins my wind down of social activities, but there seems to be no end in sight right through till the end of January. Oh dear.... let's breath in the pictures, shall we?
