2. However, I do love Christmas music! As I am typing this, I am listening to Celtic Woman singing O Holy Night.
3. Although there are no decorations inside the cottage yet, the December camellias have been decorating their bushes along the side of the front porch.
4. The box of hats for the Chicago area food pantry kids' Christmas party was sent off just before Thanksgiving. I heard this week that it had arrived--all twenty-six hats inside.
5. Now I am knitting some Christmas projects. No photos of those yet--obviously. That would spoil the surprise. I'll give you a hint, though. They involve several balls of different colors of yarn and a knowledge of fair isle technique.
I shall light the second Advent candle this weekend, the candle that represents LOVE. It follows the first candle, HOPE. This week, among my offerings of gratitude through Friday Fave Five, I send my LOVE to all, friends and family, and my thanks to Susanne for hosting FFF every Friday.
