Random Reflections


This week I've been so thankful for the bit of snow that greeted me in the morning and fell most of the day, defying the forecaster's predictions.  I will ignore the warmer temperatures this weekend and hope for more snow in the weeks to come.  I just love looking at the holiday decorations in the evening, it seems so cozy!  I've pulled out the Christmas mugs and my tea just taste better because of it!

I am one of those people who loves the dark evenings that creep up closer to dinner time.  I've missed walking Frodo after dinner and we haven't established a before dinner walk.  In time, it will happen.  Suddenly Frodo seems to be unpuppylike for most of the day.  Yes, he does funny little things but his napping is more frequent.  I'm not complaining, just noticing.

I am thankful for:  cranberry bread warm from the oven, checking off items on my l-o-n-g to do list, advent calendars, twinkling lights, crossword puzzles, secret shopping, and the free advent reflection booklet my church distributed :)

Have a lovely weekend!!

  1. Karen, I think in a past life you and I were sisters, I too am thankful for the things on your list, except crossword puzzles, I like word searches!
    There is something so cozy about preparing dinner with the darkness closing in and if I had snow it would be just perfect.

  16. Wow, Karen, I don't know how I got so far behind in reading your blog! You've been very busy though, and I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. Love your little stockings. Isn't Baby Ull great? What size needle did you use? I've noticed that the Dale Garn sweater patterns call for itty bitty ones and that sure takes a while to knit.

  17. Your posts are so cozy! I am definitely craving snow - that's a big reason we moved to this part of the world! But we keep getting cold spells mixed with warm spells and it just isn't in the cards for us yet, I guess...I will just have to live vicariously through you! :)

  19. We have no snow and it's been in the 60's. Not that I'm complaining about that but it doesn't seem to be December with no snow. And the ski areas are needing some in a serious way. I agree with you about the darkness early. I appreciate it staying lighter in the summer, but there is something about when it is cold outside being able to hunker down inside with tea and yarn.

  20. Sounds like you are really settling in nice to Winter and the Holidays.
    We've had rain, rain and more rain here. Not nearly as fun as snow...but it's "Winter" for us.
