Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real {the cozy season}

~PRETTY~
It has been a while since I have seen a rainbow this clearly and I had to snap the photo on my camera even though I was holding up traffic for a moment.  Rainbows always make me think of God and Noah and promises and peace.




~HAPPY and FUNNY~
Lately, we have been doing a lot of snuggling on the sofa while watching Christmas movies.  Here we were watching the Ice Age Christmas special in our jammies ~ complete with little boy bedhead.  :)  If you also like to share cozy couch moments with good family shows, check out the 25 Days of Christmas programming guide here.


~REAL~
December is here and the leaves are off the trees.  The barren months lie ahead.  Time to turn toward home, creativity, reading, and quiet, contemplative pursuits. I love this time of year.  The darkest evenings, longest nights evoke such a refocusing of my priorities on my family and job as keeper of the home.  Time to read a little Laura Ingalls Wilder by the fireplace (and turn of that TV... and iPhone... and computer...) .

  1. Good for you holding up traffic--maybe you made someone else look and remember the God's promise. I like the fuzzy couch hair, too. Happy Advent!
