I’ve just come home from our annual faculty Christmas party, held at a co-worker’s home. I love her home. It’s an historic one, built before the Civil War, with a couple of additions, and she and her husband (our favorite dentist ever) have it tastefully decorated for the holidays.
It wouldn’t feel like Christmas if I didn’t see their place.
It was a small party this year, as many of my co-workers couldn’t attend for reasons beyond their control, but all in all it was wonderful. And the food was fantastic.
I slept in ‘til 7:30 this morning and when I got up, I saw that Jack Frost had left his mark on the bedroom windows.
It’s pretty chilly in our bedroom, which I actually prefer over being too warm. The only drawback is that it’s difficult to get from under those warm covers in the morning.
Today I wrapped presents. I didn’t realize how little I had until I began wrapping everything. That’s never good.
The little snowflake above is actually a strand of garland that I bought as a gift for someone. I wanted one for myself but the shop only had the one. There are about twenty snowflakes in varying sizes along a strand of silver rope. Very beautiful, I think.
I wanted to get some photos before I wrapped it all up.
I laid my jewelry out before I got dressed for the party tonight and thought it looked pretty, so I snapped a photo of it.
It’s fun getting dressed up sometimes, isn’t it?

There were years in my life that I wished I could have just cancelled Christmas. I am just so glad that this isn’t one of them.
Hope your weekend is a good one.
