virtual advent tour 2018: day 21
posted by soe 6:15 am

virtual advent tour 2018, hosted by spritewrites.net.

I’m guessing today might be the final day at work for a lot of folks before the Christmas holiday, in which case, may it go speedily along. Today is also the Winter Solstice (winter officially arrives at 5:23 p.m. EST in North America/22:23 UTC). In honor of that, I offer one of my favorite Dar Williams holiday songs, “The Christians and the Pagans”:

Now, on to today’s host! Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading has written a final post for us this season, sharing her traditional Christmas morning breakfast. I’m betting a bunch of folks try out the recipe she includes.

We’re back tomorrow with our antepenultimate post of the Virtual Advent Tour for 2018. See you then!

Honestly, I forgot it was Thursday. But then I remembered, so here are three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I’ve seen cars with Christmas lights as decorations earlier this season, but today was the first time I’ve seen a fake tree decorated on one’s roof.

2. I was one of the people highly disappointed last season when NBC opted not to renew Timeless, but I appreciated they were willing to give fans a tv movie to wrap up the outstanding story arcs. It aired tonight and did not disappoint.

3. I finally made it across town to one of the library branches to donate three bags of books that have been sitting in my car for a month. Now I just need to get to Goodwill to do the same with the gigantic bag of clothing taking up half my trunk.

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