Sparkles of warmth

“Santa’s long gone,

the elves put away.

Christmas balls packed,

Stashed with his sleigh.

But here in our home,

We bask in its glow.

Bubble lights continue


Candle sticks throw,

Sparkles of warmth

Rays of good cheer.

While the calendar

Counts on,

We savor the

New Year!”

The rest of the world may continue, we know, but here in our home, we wait on the snow:)
The rest of the world may continue, we know,

  1. Thank you for another beautiful post. 6th January we put away all the inside things. This year I have left a string of lights draped across two scruffy bush trees. In the darkest part of the night when it is still gently humid those lights continue to bring a beautiful touch of hope and encouragement even if the promise of the next day is for much heat. I love an Auzzie summer but love also have blogs about snow.

    1. Thank you Faye:) My birthday is shortly after the New Year, so my “guys” (husband and son) have made it a tradition to keep up the tree. Ron does such an amazing job with the lights, we don’t put much in balls and such. The real Christmas decorations were down before I went back to school. Replacing with soft winter blue and a touch of hearts. But oh the lights:) We can’t do the winter nights without the lights. Will take down next week. At least that is the game plan. Husband puts it up and takes it down. We are both happier that way!:) (he’s an electrical engineer) Lol Stay cool; our summers are brutal too!


    1. I have an early January birthday and my family has used this as a perfect reason to keep the tree up. We have enjoyed it so much over the years, it has become a tradition:) We are getting a bit of snow today, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to take down! Lol Thank you for stopping by:) blessings, denise

    1. Amen! Thank you. Here in Oklahoma, a “passing” bit of snow is coming our way:) We’re from Pennsylvania, so winter was always to be stretched out and enjoyed. Here in the south, (although we love “here in the south”) they seem to be inclined to take the tree down on Christmas day! After the run to get there, we just cannot understand why not to enjoy the light for a bit longer than a day. Yes, Santa and the full blown out Christmas decorations are away, but next weekend seems good to us today:) Heading in the kitchen to bake up a coffee cake to celebrate this ” season ” of life and stress free joyful 3 day weekend!! Blessings, and enjoy your snow:)
