a very cold day here in our little valley and its feeling festive.
we spent the morning writing cards and wrapping gifts,
then strolled to our farm shop to post our cards and bought a tree.
it felt good to be buying a tree that had been cut only the day before from the farm shops own little forest and to carry it home down the lane in the cold, it was nice to know our tree travelled the sum total of about a quarter of a mile.
we have just been out the front to put our lights, little twinkling white ones...not a multi-colored extravaganza!...over our porch.
now i am in by the fire my hands are tingling it is so cold out there. so i will spend the rest of the day in the warm, dressing the tree and listening to Caithream Ciùil.
