Getting ready for Christmas

Its that time of the year. You know, the time to dress up our pets and take humiliating pictures.
I finally have my tree trimmed and I am trying to feel festive despite the month long battle with a cold and sinus and throat issues.
My Christmas wish for this year is for everyone to be warm and safe and have enough to eat. Simple things for a complicated world. It seems like it would be so simple if we all really put our mind to it.

Long cold winter

The last days of Autumn are gone. We are now into our long cold winter. Here in Michigan it seems to last longer then it actually does. Winter brings with it, colds and flu and days in bed wishing I felt better. I have already survived H1N1, 2 colds and about of strep & its only the first half of December.
I long for the warm Autumn days that were here just weeks ago.
I made this necklace to remind me of those times when the sun sparkled and the leaves fell down like confetti.
