It's positively balmy this morning -- it's only -20C. Haha! The skies look heavy with snow and methinks the sun has hied off to Hawaii today... no sign of Mr. Sunshine at present.
Even so, I begin turning my thoughts with eager anticipation towards preparing for the holidays. My list today includes gathering my ingredients for some Christmas baking. And, I want to put up the Christmas tree. We're a lot later at putting it up than most years -- but I have had my fig tree in the living room festooned with tiny white lights for weeks, so we haven't been totally bereft of cheery lights and cozy ambiance.
I just looked out my window. Snow crystals are forming and falling, so I may need to add shoveling to that to-do list. If you've followed this blog for a while, you may recall that I actually prefer snow shoveling to lawn mowing, so I won't mind bundling up for a brisk workout on the driveways!
Wishing you happy thoughts today.
