I'm enjoying the quiet today after a wonderful holiday and long weekend. Ryan and his father spent the weekend away at a hockey tournament, while Matt stayed home with me. Both Andy and I spent great one on one time with our kids. Hopefully, they feel the same. We are easing slowly into the holiday season. The weather has been warmer than usual, making it hard to get into the spirit of things. It is supposed to turn colder through the week and snow by week's end. Perfect timing for our town's tree lighting ceremony!
1. I discovered that my son still has that dry sense of humor that he had as a little boy. He makes me laugh when he's not complaining about something.
2. Lots of knitting in the early hours. Easy stuff, with no pressure.
3. Many fires in the fireplace. I've found myself asleep with the cat curled next to me. It's a good feeling.
4. Advent is here, and in a round about way, we are preparing.
5.There are many geese gathered on the lake and in the fields, eating and waiting until it's time to fly south. I wonder if they know something that we don't. We, on the other hand, are all waiting anxiously for the first sizable snowfall.
Have a good week everyone!
