As the daylight fades sooner these days, my little fig tree, festooned with tiny white lights, is now called into service each day as soon as evening shadows lengthen. Her express purpose? To create a cozy glimmer in the corner of my dining room.
Already the room feels cozier, softer, more inviting. A few lights... just a simple thing... but, oh, the pleasure I get every time I pass by.
Laura Ingalls Wilder once said, "I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." We're discovering she's right, isn't she?
So here's wishing you cozy pleasures... whatever time of day it is when you read this and in whatever way they make you happy!
