Virtual Advent Tour 2019

Welcome to Day 6 of the Virtual Advent Tour. Happy St. Nicholas Day! I hope he filled your shoes with treats!

Behind today’s calendar door we have a treat from raidergirl3 at an adventure in reading. She has a post for you about the fun ways she and her family are adding a little pizzazz to their holidays.

Thanks for stopping by and do come back tomorrow. If you’re interested in doing a post as part of Virtual Advent Tour, just leave me a note in the comments and I’ll get you set up. We still have some unclaimed dates available.

Three beautiful things from my past week:


1. Many of the towns I drove through last Friday were putting the finishing touches on their holiday decorations, and I saw more than one cherry picker. This one reminded me of the reformed Bumble at the end of Rudolph.

2. Rudi and I caught a sneak preview of The Aeoronauts, which we loved, about a Victorian balloonist and the scientist who conceived of meteorology. The acting was great (Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne front the film), the script tight, and the movie should win awards for both cinematography and sound editing. If it interests you at all, make sure you see it in the theater, because no matter how good your tv is, it’s not going to compare.

3. We had the first snow of the season while we were up in New England. And then my parents had another foot after we left.

What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
