Apologies to dear friends in snowy, frigid Sweden and blizzardy prairies of Canada. Here in Syracuse today we have bright sunny skies and it is almost 70 degrees F. I am blissful. Though I do like cold snowy weather around Yule, it is lovely to have a day like this to throw open the windows and let the balmy breezes blow through the house. This gives me an opportunity to do a special ritual for cleansing. Working with the wind can be a little iffy, because it is so fickle. Blowing first one way, than another, then ceasing all together. But grab the opportunity when you can. I love how the house feels after a windy day ritual. It smells divine too!
One of the craft stores I go to is having a special 50% sale on all their Christmas supplies. Boy, howdy did I go a little nuts!! Decking the halls is a little challenging this year with kittens amongst us. So I am looking vertically and high for decorating. These little cats are jumpers...leapers...climbers. We shall see! I will keep you posted. I did buy a small artificial tree to put on a table top. It will have soft or wooden ornaments. I am sure they will be fascinated by it. I just don't want to risk our usual big fresh tree; worried about the kittens ingesting needles, drinking up the tree water, climbing up and inside and all around.
The next few days will be busy with decorating, crafting and other Yule-themed activities. I think I have gotten a bit of the Spirit of the Season simmering. That's a good thing!
How is December treating you so far?
