How I hate to take down the Christmas decorations. Each January it is tough to say goodbye to the green, silver, and red.
My sweet reindeer, resting comfortably once more in their basket in the attic. The tree lights are dimmed and my little evergreen is outside in the cold.
Two weeks of warmth, joy, and freedom rushed by. Monday it is back to normal. Back to work.
But I’ll keep on lighting candles throughout the year! And I put my two friends on the left on top of my bookcase. They’re inseparable! And too cute to be stuffed away.
Welcome to January. 😀
Dear readers and friends, thank you all so much for the good things that you have shared with me and with each other over the past year. Inspiring writings and photographs, the beautiful and often touching words and images. They make this sweet world better.
Happy holidays and all the best for 2019. Stay healthy and live well. Take care of each other. Laugh and embrace.

Today V-man and I visited a garden center, where the Christmas spirit was running free and merry. In a quiet corner I found this fluffy soft cat pillow. The perfect gift for sweet Bandit.
What do you think? Does he like it?
the joy of giving
mirrored in the peaceful smile
of the other’s eyes
