The Christmas Tree is home, the lights are on and I am happy as a lark! I could care less if any ornaments ever make it onto the tree! The scent of pine & the sight of multi-colored twinkling lights fill me with such calm. If there's ever a time when I'm able to silence all the noise in my mind it's when I'm physically gardening or like now when the Christmas Tree up.
I'm not an artificial Christmas Tree kind of gal - a small one or two is fine on a bookshelf or end table, but for THE Christmas Tree, I love a fresh tree.
Christmas is next week! Sigh. The most wonderful time of the year goes so fast.
