I walked into the kitchen this morning to find this outside my window.
It seemed like a good omen for the month. But then I am fond of finding good omens in life.
The advent calendar came out today and I spent a happy half hour planning our coming weeks of activities. Pedicures, paper chains, The Nutcracker, an art show, taking in the Christmas lights. Tonight we listened to music of the season* over dinner. It was a good start.
Tomorrow, five little boys invade for a birthday party after school. I'd better get some rest.
*One day, when my hair is much more salt than pepper, I will cut my hair just like hers.
