It's beginning to look like Christmas at our house. John brought the tree in and strung the lights. It's a beginning!
I spent the day writing notes on cards and making a few quick presents to put in the mail.
Our children are trickling in: one is here, one arrives tomorrow, the third on Tuesday; we'll have a full house come Wednesday when our son-in-law Jim arrives. That's when it will really feel like Christmas is coming!
As John strung the lights on the tree, I realized which earrings I should wear today: one of my 4 pair of Christmas bulbs. This is the only red pair, one of the two that once flashed on-and-off, powered by tiny but heavy watch batteries.
I could never stand to wear this pair for long--too heavy. But they're popular favorites among people who're amused by their flashing lights.
Seven days remain for wearing Christmas earrings. Which ones tomorrow?
