Yule Love It

I think it's time for me to enter into the xmas spirit. Oldest will be home on Saturday night and I'd like to have some lights up at least by then. I suspect I may do a 'time to fake it til you make it' xmas post most years but I can't be arsed to look at the archives right now. I got back from my October friend reunion trip with ideas about sending Thanksgiving cards to those beloved individuals and others. Ha. Somehow it's the second week of December. 

Spirit has been fairly lacking but today I had a moment while donating blood of enjoying the xmas pop music (all songs from my youth or before). Somehow I had never noticed that our friend James Taylor recorded a Christmas album, 2004. Smooth and warm. I'll bet they offer it as a PBS fundraiser treat. Lou Rawls can join this relaxed jazzy mood too!

We have no snow but got a few bitter cold nights and days this week. Going back up to 50s and 60s for the weekend. We'll be driving to Austin around the 23rd and back on the 27th if the roads stay clear.    

Here's our tree with beautiful Zing last year:

I've been lighting candles and thinking of her.
