…ever so stealthily, Christmas has arrived

As usual, December 1 marks Christmas at our house.  I pulled out my favourite, happiest ornaments as it will be my little grandson's first Christmas. This Christmas will be a bit more relaxed and less stressed. For once in my life I did not buy any extra Christmas ornament of any kind, rather used what I had. For me, decorating for the holidays can overtake my weekends - this year I just put some great music on, poured myself a glass or two of a good Chablis and spent time  putting ornaments on the tree and reminiscing about Christmas pasts.  Then I put on Netflix and enjoyed watching old episodes of "Charmed". Kind of a girly weekend I know, but ever so fulfilling.
