I lit a candle today for my friend.
I send my love and light.
On my desk is a little Christmas Tree
that is decorated with memories.
My daughter made paper garlands for my miniature tree.
She made kite and penguin garlands since
I love them both.
She made tiny traditional paper doll garlands too.
I used an old felted Snowman hat
that was from my childhood for a topper.
My Mother and I made two little milk top ornaments
when I was 4 years old.
I remember making them with her.
I treasure this little tree.
We have begun our Winter Cribbage tourney.
Tomorrow we begin our Christmas cookie baking.
We will be baking glutton free delights!
This week I am studying ginger and the Pine tree.
This photograph has inspired me.
I want to see if I can sprout a pine tree!
I have lots of fresh Pine boughs in my house.
I love the smell.
I also have fresh Holly in vases.
For Winter Solstice I will buy Roses to go with
my Pine and Holly.
I am enjoying my study
of the German culture.
