When I awoke early this morning, the windows in the bedroom were covered in frost. The wind had howled all night long and inside was just a little chilly, especially up in the bedroom. We use blankets to keep warm at night, to cut down on the heating oil.
I ran downstairs to get my camera, smelling the delicious scent of coffee emanating from the kitchen. God, I love that smell.
I'd like to thank you all for your kind comments on Sunday's post (below). I've been busy cleaning all day and then made dinner and am just sitting down for a well-deserved rest.
I like cleaning and polishing (to an extent) and am proud of how nicely the house gleams. Our eldest son comes by train from NYC tomorrow afternoon and I can't wait to see him again. Our youngest son may not make it out by Christmas Eve, but you never know with him. He just may surprise us. And we'll see him on Christmas Day for sure.
A present came via FedEx today. Although we both agreed that we would not exchange gifts this year, SOMEBODY couldn't help himself. And all I had gotten him was a card. Oh, bugger!
