I’ve spent much of the past week in bed, knocked out by a nasty upper respiratory infection of some sort…but am finally on the mend.
While I didn’t have much of chance to create this weekend, I did manage to do a little holiday decorating…
We had a beautiful December 1st snowfall, the kind that turns everything into a crystal wonderland (sorry, I didn’t have enough energy to get outdoors for a photo or two…)
which has definitely put me in the spirit, and I’m looking forward to a joyful Advent season…
so when I start to complain about winter weather in a few weeks, remind me of these words!
Like foolish folk of old I would not be,
Who had no room that night for Him and thee.
See, Mother Mary, here within my heart
I’ve made a little shrine for Him apart;
Swept it of sin, and cleansed it with all care;
Warmed it with love and scented it with prayer.
So, Mother, when the Christmas anthems start,
Please let me hold your baby–in my heart.
Sr. Maryanna, O.P.
I’m so sorry that you got sick.>I love your tree that’s on the table.
your decorating looks fab! I have had a similar sort of virussy lurgy that has laid me low as well…..and my Christmas decs are still in the attic….yikes must get a move on and get them out or it will be too late!….and the sleigh will have left the building!
Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather.>>I need to get going on my decorations as I only have my Advent wreath up so far.
Wow, your tree decorating looks gorgeous! I have been under the weather too with a cold, so I’m hoping we can put up our tree and decorations this weekend. At least we have the Advent calendar started.
