I love Christmas decor, but am always relieved to take it all down and pack it away for another year. My living room looks like it's had a haircut.
For now, this gift is going up there: a picture made of slatted wood.
The reds get put away, the blues come out again.
I love the window wall in this room. Even on a rainy day like today, it lets a lot of light in. I am content to sit and take in all the changing lights and shadows on the walls.
I can see the forest and the trees, and the rain on the pond.
I am ready for a new year and all the new things it holds.
