Today was another wicked cold one for a December day in Maryland but here inside the old manor house, it’s warm and cozy. George is asleep on the little couch across the room and my husband is in the kitchen, hopefully making me some tea.
It was another late day for me. I stopped to get a few things on the way home. I find it easier to do in small increments, but I still had time for my walk. There were goodies at the school office today and they need to be walked off or I’ll have a butt the size of Montana. As it is, it’s already the size of New Jersey.

The battery went in the camera today, so no pictures from my husband to share with you. But this one is from last December and is one of my favorites.
I took this photo in the upstairs hallway. The garland was a present I had just bought for myself on sale at my favorite garden shop. It has feathers and pods and all sorts of natural elements. The glass beaded candleholder is an old one from Pottery Barn and I just love the light it throws.
It’s happy at school; how could it not be with all those children? Today after dismissal, I watched from our back office door as the junior cheerleading squad (grades 2-5) went through their routines in the lobby. They were preparing to cheer for the jv basketball teams at a game after school and they were so adorable that I found myself with a tear in my eye. Even their pom poms are tiny and the coach was explaining the proper way to hold them.
I am getting my spirit on. And I am looking forward to next week and some fun things I have planned. But until then, it’s still quiet. And every day I come home, I hope that my husband surprises me with greens and maybe even a handmade tree. He really spoiled me last year with that tree.
A handmade Christmas tree
This is one of my favorite holiday songs. The video that this person created is nice with the skating and the dog on the ice. Hope you enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today. It's always good to see you here.
