The temperature here on the farm will be hovering around -6 tonight (with the wind chill factor) so you can imagine that the woodstoves are burning brightly and all our heavy draperies are drawn against the cold winter's air.
Household management was on my agenda today. It is always quiet but diligent work...paying the monthly bills, organizing my recipe binder, making a list of Christmas to-do's so that I am not worn to a fiddle-string by the month's end.
I find that my home is so much more cozy and welcoming when I am tidy and organized. Bedlam is the enemy of a hospitable home. With the Holiday season now upon me, I want to be able to open my door to all who enter with a quiet warmth....a shelter from the storm of this busy time of year.
My decorating is almost complete, just a few bits to gather tomorrow as I run my errands in town. Then I can sit back and enjoy all the blessings of this loveliest of seasons.
Yours so kindredly,
P.S. I am ever so curious about all the kind and thoughtful folks who happen to wander by my little home each day....would you be so kind as to leave me a comment and tell me a little about yourselves?
