How is December treating you so far? Good, I hope!
The other day, I noticed my warm, plaid scarf in the closet. I haven't worn it much. When you're 5'3", you need to pay attention to "scale" when it comes to things like scarves. I fell in love with the plaid but when I put it on, it was a bit... overwhelming.
I think the scarf looks much better on our entry way dresser.
A couple of years ago, my Mom gave my sister and me each a set of these beautiful wood angel wings for Christmas. This year, I hung them from an old door with burlap ribbon...
Tomorrow, I'm heading to see "The Sound of Music" musical with our oldest son's class. When you're the mom of three boys, opportunities to see musicals - much less "The Sound of Music" - don't come up often. So, I jumped on it!
I'll be blessing those around me by singing, "The hills are alive..." for weeks to come, I'm sure (if only I could carry a tune).
Maybe I'll drop some subtle hints for Christmas gift ideas by changing the words to "A Few of my Favorite Things..." It might go something like this (must be sung in tune of the song):
"Grain sack on pillows and baby doll sheep,
Children who listen, going to bed without a peep.
White ironstone anything and warm, soft throw blankets,
hand-drawn pictures and flowers in vases..."
Nah. They'd just tune me out. ;)
I'll leave you with Doe, a deer. A female deer... (Sorry, I had to.)
Hope you have a wonderful December day!
