Heading towards "" the darkest days"

Goodmorning everybody!

We are really getting into the darkest days of the year. Somehow I hate it, but at the same time I love it, because of Christmastime and the lights and decorations and all.
I just love it to be up at about 8 or 8.30 in the morning, by then it still is kind of dark outside, specially when it is cloudy, then it appears to be a bit gloomy.
But first I put on the coffee, put some food into the bowl of Brodski, walk into the room to open the curtains. And then the best moment of the day: I switch on the lights on the Christmastree!
With my coffee at hand, I sit down on the couch, listen to the news, read some teletext, and every now and then cast an eye on the shining and shimmering tree and I just feel happy at those moments. Yes, I sound like a little child, but we are entitled to do so, and it's good to be able to feel that way once in a while ROFL.

Just love those quiet moments in the morning, don;t have to be fully awake yet, can let that happen steadily, sit in my little computer corner, read the mails, and blogs and the lovely comments I get from my blogvisitors, design a bit and then for some time life is just good.

I did even some housework yesterday(laundry!) but will do some more today. Also must not forget to make a call to my hairdresser, I really do need a haircut, and want it to be done this week., so I will be pretty again at Christmas, grin!

Then this week I also should try and have a quick visit to Heidi, or perhaps she can come over to me, because with Christmas she and her family will be away for a few days.
I am kind of nerd, I suppose, but I always like to be home with Christmas. I don;t mind people coming over to me, like we did some years ago every Christmas with the circle of friends we had.
Many of them already have passed away( and they were all too young).
I enjoyed making a dinner, dress the table real pretty, and such fun we had in the afternoon, when we unwrapped all the presents, everybody had for eveybody! And it were just small things, we always put a limit on it, you had to find something between € 5,00-€ 10,00. It was more about "thinking of somebody, making an effort to find something funny or useful, it was all about the joy of giving(and a bit of receiving too LOL) and yes, it was great to see all those different wrapped presents lying under the tree and later see all the smiles on the faces!
Pity, it is overbecause the group isn;t there anymore.
But we still remember at Christmas those moments and it always brings a smile on our face.

Okay, let's go back to the present and bore you with another Christmaskit hahahaha!
This one is in a completely different color palette, it is named "Cool and Chic Christmas"and I just love the gorgeous framecluster Arlene made with i, as well as the two gogrous pageborders !
Hope you will have a fantastic day!

What a pretty kit and add-ons by Arlene! I will post Pogo's page today. I know what you mean about gathering with friends and loved ones in your home for the holiday. And now most of them are gone. But the memories stay with us, and that's the nice part. Enjoy your quiet mornings with your coffee and the tree lights blinking. It really is nice. Have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

I also love the quiet dark mornings... It's almost 7 right now and time to get moving, but I have been up for more than an hour enjoying a cuppa and blogging. Thanks for sharing it with me. And thank you for the lovely kit. Merry Christmas!

Hello and Thank you for these lovely downloads.
I agree it's good to feel like a child again sometimes and enjoy all the wonders around us.
My haircut appointment is today, I booked it last Friday. I hope you can get your haircut done too.
I remember when our family used to have Christmas at home - with everyone around the tree opening the presents and enjoying their surprise when they saw what they had received...
