winter is almost here

we had some snow showers this morning and it's finally cold. now, normally, i don't wish for cold weather but i have to say- i don't really dig the 50 degree very, very damp and chilly weather that we have had so far. i'll take cold over damp any day. gearing up for the holiday season- and by that i mean i am going to get packages ready to be sent next week- and then i am done until the cooking starts. we try to stick to a very minimalist ideal- i don't decorate much and we don't gift much. we eat plenty and share ourselves with family and friends in the fine pagan tradition. i celebrate the winter solstice and completely embrace the concept of spending the dark, cold downtime of winter with family and friends- playing games, sharing conversation and feasting. :)

i don't do the consumerist christian thing. so- enjoy. i will.... :)

Now that sounds like a great way to celebrate Yule Betmo. Enjoy!
