It's a beautiful, warm Saturday in our neck of the woods - warm enough to comfortably have a morning snack outdoors. It's currently 12 degrees, with our town Christmas parade to look forward to this evening.
The weather has been so warm, it feels more like late summer than late fall. It's definitely enjoyable, but I haven't really taken time to settle in to many Christmas preparations - it still feels so far off, even though the calendar is telling me otherwise. I bought some cedar branches at the market this morning, so perhaps once I get some planters filled, and the weather cools off tonight, I'll be more excited about it. In the meantime, I'm loving all of the leaves in the yard, and the beautiful browns and yellows and oranges outside.
