All stories they say, begin in one of two ways:
"A stranger came to town,"
or else, "I set out upon a journey."
The rest is all just a metaphor and simile.

Trim the Hearth and Set the Table
Advent is one of my favorite times in the Church calendar. They sing all my favorite songs (People Look East and O Come, O Come Emmanuel) and there are advent calendars and pink and purple candles to light.
I let the girlchild decorate the tree this year
Bob is the only one who has his stocking hung so far...someone is excited
I thought we'd spend the season working on a family puzzle. It only took us an evening though. Next time, more pieces!
There is still a little bit of setting up to do (the nativity scene mainly), presents to wrap, and a birthday to celebrate.
Then we'll be ready for Christmas.
