shortest day...

Today is the shortest day of the year, well... light wise that is, with all that I wish to accomplish, it better not be any shorter time wise!!!! The Christmas cards are coming in on a daily basis... I love receiving cards... some think it's an out dated thing, with emails, facebook, blogs and all.. but I am happy to see that not all agree. I mailed cards this year.. I didn't last year, we were newly in the house, I didn't have a clue as to where my address book was, and for some reason, I didn't seem to have the time to do them. I missed not doing them, so this year, got onto it.
I know we don't get as many as we used to, but they still are making a nice "frame" around the dining room doors.

Our guest doggies are beginning to arrive for Christmas... we will have five staying with us. This is Daphne.. she is a six month old Great Dane and a real sweetie pie. Abbie was (is) quite taken with her. She thought Edgar was a big dog...

But Daphne has them beat for sure. And to think she is really just about half her size.... kind of like having a pony in the house!!!!

So, as this shortest day comes to a close.. and tomorrow the light begins to lengthen... we still have a lot of winter ahead of us. Guess that means, cuddle up by the stove and enjoy just being at home.
