We got a little bit of snow here in Northern Jersey...it'll be gone by tonight because of the rain, but I feel like a kid for a few hours at least. Yay for snow! It is so so so cleansing.
I haven't had a tree since I last lived with someone. I love the smell, but I find it reminds me of the lonely aspects too much. So I just decorate my windows. Here are my snowpeople and the heart ornament I got for my birthday many years ago.
And of course the 5 nutcrackers keeping watch...
And here is the dove ornament that I put up when the military first went to war in Afghanistan. It is up 365/24/7. I said I wouldn't take it down until they were all back home. I knew it would be awhile, but I never thought it would travel to 3 rentals over so many years. It seems perhaps it will have to remain up forever, but I do wish we could bring'em home.
I am not a mindless patriotic flag-waver, but a patriot who questions her government while remaining an optimistic fool, hoping for a more peaceful new year around the world.
Did anyone send a card to Walter Reed?
