Hello friends and hello December! I didn’t even mind the freezing temperatures this morning since Lucy looks so festive in her red polar fleece (and it fits her perfectly right now).
She’s 16 weeks old today, so we have officially given up lunch. I’m looking forward to a little more flexibility in my days since I don’t have to feed a puppy at noon. I’m also looking forward to getting out and exploring more on our walks.
We did get the house decorated and we went minimal like last year – our big tree (without ornaments on the bottom branches and nothing out underneath it), two little trees (the one in the photo at the top of the post is our advent calendar and the one below with holiday words), two mantels with fresh greens (one with twinkle lights), and a tray with the waxed
poinsettia (oops! amaryllis!) bulbs (like last year). It didn’t take long to do and I know it will be quick to un-do (which means I’m not dreading it). and since it’s already done, I have the whole month to enjoy it!
I’m looking forward to a month full of crisp morning walks, family gatherings, baking cookies, good books, plenty of sweaters, twinkle lights, and wonder.
Hello December, welcome!
