I love love love this time of year. This time of year right before Christmas. This time of year when the days are pale and cold, and the bundling up to go for a walk takes as long as the walk itself.
Yesterday, I read half a book and napped on the couch underneath blankets. Two warm schnauzers curled next to me. I felt a little under the weather, a little tired, a little like maybe I needed to hibernate the afternoon away. So I did. Dreaming away the cold. Sunday afternoon is good for that.
And we went for three long, frigid walks. This time of year, even the ordinary becomes sprinkled in glitter.
The anticipation of Christmas, of family and friend time, of food and fun and lots of laughter—that’s what comes this time of year for me. I wish you all the same.
We’re two days away from winter solstice. And six sleeps til Christmas!
