I am taking this time so easy I can’t even believe it myself.  We do not stress ourselves by including obligatory events in December, so our home life is without strain to complete or compete.  We decorate a little, and I like to burn candles this time of year because the dark begins in the afternoon and seems like a cheery flicker in the dark.  We celebrate not exactly any holiday other than the winter solstice, but are happy to join in the whole festive season.  I drive less and shop very little because the crowds and traffic are not on my list of jolly things to experience.  I buy a little more than usual in the specialty foods and booze category, but in general our consumption is normal in December.  We certainly do not go wild.  We like it quiet.

I am very lucky that the Tucson Botanical Gardens is right around the corner from home, so I zip over there for some outdoor nature time.  It is also a winter treat to have the butterfly and tropical frog show at the gardens in the greenhouse.  It is a gift the year around to be able to take a beautiful botanical break away from traffic and shopping and work.  This is my idea of a jolly good time.

I consider my life to be blessed with ease and good health. I wish all my gentle readers a holiday week of gladness and good fortune.  May you all be the merriest of readers in the jolliest of good company.  God bless us every one.
