A bit too cold for walking this morning. It was 9 degrees and windy.
If it was calm and sunny it would be okay but with the wind I decided to stay home.
I finally got the Christmas tree up and decorated today. 🎄
I know not many people put tinsel on their trees anymore, but to me the tree
just doesn't seem finished without it.
It makes me smile to see the tinsel flutter and glisten when I walk by.
Picture didn't come out so great because of the window
but here it is.
We are going to have a gas fireplace in the new house and we went looking
for one today but didn't find one we liked yet.
We've had snow flurries, some sun, but it was stayed cold in the teens.
A happy day to you.
"The universal joy of Christmas is certainly wonderful.
We ring the bells when princes are born,
or toll a mournful dirge when great men pass away.
Nations have their red-letter days, their carnivals and festivals,
but once a year and only once, the whole world stands still
to celebrate the advent of a life."
