nog, knows me too well, and aglow
posted by soe 2:57 am

I admit to being stressed about the fact that Rudi and I have done no housecleaning thus far this week, which means the next two days before our holiday party are going to involve a lot of drudgery. But it’s when you’re most down that it’s important to focus on how good things really are, so here are three beautiful things from my past week:

1. The dairy farmers at my market have eggnog.

2. Every Thanksgiving weekend, Mum and I make Christmas cookies, most of which she kindly lets me take back for my party. While I averred that it was not necessary this year, she wouldn’t heed my assurances that I could make a batch at home to serve my guests. While my dad and I were bringing in the Christmas trees, she made and decorated enough cookies for me to bring home a generous tin’s worth.

3. I unplugged the lights that surround the living room a couple days before we left for Connecticut so that it wouldn’t be so obvious when we weren’t here and I worked late Monday night, so forgot to turn them back on. Trudging home in a chilly rain Tuesday night, I kept thinking how that would be my first task in the door. As I walked past the window, I noticed a rosy glow from our apartment, where Rudi had already plugged them back in as a beacon to draw me home.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
