Dark December

The calendar turned today to the last month of the year.  Just when I was getting used to 2010.  It's been unseasonably cold here in the Midwest and all I feel like doing is nesting.  Of course as the calendar changes to December I also realize that there are mittens to be knit, cookies to be baked, and gifts to be wrapped--activities that fill a house with creativity and warmth.  So I shall plug in the Christmas tree, sit down on the couch next to my dear one and make up those little mittens that will keep little hands warm.  Hope that you are staying warm and cozy too.
