The Small Things
I'm a bit too tall and a tad too old to be an elf, but elf I was this week over at the Cottage, what with all the sleigh unloading! So I'm glad that part is over! And now everything in it's place and a place for everything. And I contemplate some time off. Time for me. Time for family. Time for friends. I will close all the shops from Dec. 21 to Dec. 26.
We will go out for a nice dinner with the family (a jeans ban for that evening) and a holiday play. Mr Shabby and I then leave the next day for Raleigh to spend a few warm and delightfully cozy days with Liz and Rick. Then back for traditional Christmas Eve dinner at the folks. Followed by Christmas day. All in all small things but important things. What Christmas should be about, family, friends, warmth, love and much, much laughter. I dearly, from the bottom of my heart wish the same for each and every one of you out there in blogland.
The picture above is your TGIF free image. It makes me think of a silent winter day in the forest when the silence is eloquent. Enjoy dear ones.
