We are starting to feel the Christmas spirit smiling in through the window, slipping in under the door and peeking its head around the corner. We don't tend to put up the decorations any earlier than a couple of weeks before Christmas Day but a couple of little things have managed to find themselves a home for the next few weeks - a star light in the window and a pair of beautiful felt deer on my mantle. Little things. Not overly exuberant, or bling, just gently pointing towards a celebration and lovely family time.
Days are hurtling past and the pointing is becoming more urgent but i dont seem to feel a need to rush, just taking pleasure in each day and finding lots to smile about like...
... catching a rainbow,
... breathing the sweet scent of banana muffins,
... hearing the crunching and whooshing of a scootering boy over leaves,
... playing in the park,
... finding a peeping Tom on the fence,
... enjoying a crafty advent,
... and making salt dough decorations with the children.
I know I will need to step up a gear very soon to get everything ready for Christmas but I am enjoying the lazy meander as we head towards the day.
How are your preparations going?
