Somehow it is the 4th of December, and I’m not quite sure how that happened. The leaves have all turned and fallen from the trees. Pumpkins have been picked and are now rotting in my back yard only to be born again next spring. Turkeys have been roasted, fried and smoked. Hanukkah has started and is nearly over. My sweet little guy is four months old, and the new year is right around the corner. So it’s December, but that does mean that winter decor is in full swing. I can’t get enough of cozy tartan blankets, fresh greens, candlelight, and cranberries. I do love a cranberry, sugared, baked, stewed, and as decor, I’ll take it all. So as the wind blows, and I hope for snow, I’ll curl up on the sofa with my scotch and try to cherish the last days 2013.
