Sunday, December 17, 2006

Most of this week was spent shrouded in fog, which lifted only to let in the rain and drizzle. The fog settled and lifted, surrounding the house and yard in a blanket of quiet. It was too wet to go out into the garden, but I surveyed my projects from the balcony, dreaming of the weeds I should pull and the dead vegitation that I should remove. I also pad around from bed to bed, watching in anticipation for the next Spring's bulbs.

To fend off the gloom, we stayed inside, keeping the house bright with Christmas lights and warm with cooking and baking projects. As Christmas and year end approaches, I marvel at the blessings we have been provided. Although it's lots of work, I can find no parallel to the joy of snuggling with a baby, even if it is first thing in the morning, before the sun has risen.
