Christmas Spirit

I looked out the window this evening before I left work. The sun was shining and the sky was clear and blue. The weatherman said that it would be cold this evening, but after the window survey I had my doubts.
When I stepped out on the south side of the building, it was chilly, but not that bad. When I stepped away from the shelter of the building, the wind was blowing hard out of the north and it almost cut me in two. I picked up the pace and got into my truck and pulled on my leather gloves.
When I got home, Jilda had the fireplace going and the dogs were curled up in front of it like a Norman Rockwell painting.
Jilda was hard at work on our Christmas cards. Her cards aren't your run of the mill Christmas cards because she hand watercolors each card. They are beautiful and several of our friends have them framed.
This weekend we'll be re-arranging the plant life in the living room to make room for our Christmas tree. Saturday we'll get out the decorations, put on hot apple cider, load up the stereo with Christmas music and decorate the tree. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I hope you all are getting into the Christmas Spirit.
