December 6

We awoke this morning to shoes filled with special treats, Christmas lights twinkling in the dim light of the morning, and snow lightly swirling down to give the brown earth a light frosting.

Yesterday I helped to create a holiday market at our library with lights and greenery, live music, handmade local gifts and prepared foods for sale, cider with treats to munch, and pinecones to decorate and snowflakes to cut out for the children.

Upon arriving home we decorated a beautiful tree cut from our land. We are blessed to be able to have this tree in our new home and the warmth and beauty it brings during this month is so very welcome.

Today we are preparing for a small birthday gathering as our second oldest son is turning fourteen on the eleventh. He is having six friends over for games and cake.

I have toys to package for orders we have received, more greenery to hang and a surprise wreath to make for a neighbor that has been away and will be returning just before Christmas day.

I also wanted to share a very special project orchestrated by GardenMama that can be found here - The Wellness Tree.

Please consider making an ornament. It is a simple way to make a difference in the life of another. May Kelly's strength be a blessing to all of you.


  1. love that you're going to surprise your neighbor with a wreath on her door! what a fun thing to do! Happy Birthday to your son! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. We had a bit of snow on the ground this morning too. I can't believe there is not more yet, but I think it is on the way!

    I emailed you a winter poem this evening, but forgot to sign my name, though it may be clear that it is from me anyhow...

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day.

    I'm so happy to have found your blog!!!

    Wishing you a wonderful day

  4. Happy Birthday to your son. St Nicholas is such a magical festival for children. Ours are enthralled by this celebration each year. Popping over to look into the Wellness Tree.
