A Christmas Simple Pleasure

The living room Christmas trees (and Cleo, our polydactyl, black cat!)

 I love our house this time of year!  Sitting in the soft, warm glow of a Christmas tree (or several!) is a simple pleasure of mine.  I can sit and just get lost in the twinkle and sparkle of the lights.  It's like being enveloped in a warm, snuggly blanket on a cold winter's day!  It takes me back to days gone by.  And brings to mind the anticipation I felt as a child at Christmas time.

What do you love about this time of year?

  1. Beautiful! I love the soft lights this time of year, too.

  2. I love the outrageous outside lights that people put in their yard. In my younger years it would be my house that was decorated like that. Now I just do the bare minimum, but my younger neighbor across the road, has really used a lot of colorful lights out side this year and I'm enjoying the view from my front living room windows!!

  3. Your house looks beautiful! Love your kitty. I just the going to the stores and seeing people shopping and Christmas music playing in the background. And I love seeing the decorations everywhere.
