We are getting ready for a small, quiet Christmas. I've put lights up in various windows around the house and they are a welcome brightness because the days are dark and gloomy. We are experiencing so much heavy rain that a spring appears to have sprung up in our drive! Himself is interested to explore but I just say that we should just walk carefully round it, that when the water table lowers we should get our drive back. We'll see!
We gathered pine branches and berries during a brief spell of sunshine. The sap from the cones is sticky but smells wonderful. We have several clumps of mistletoe growing on our apple trees but only leaves this year and no white berries. It's dark enough in this dull weather to have the fairy lights on all day.
I hope that, like my bear, you are well wrapped up and getting ready to celebrate, even if it is not going to be the usual rumbustious family gathering.
