#1 On Monday night, my spiritual book club met at my house to discuss what we've been reading for Advent. Our discussions usually center around a book that we're all reading together, but for Advent we decided to each read something on our own. This is my choice, a collection of writings by some of my favorite theologians. I'm loving it. . . .
#2 Packages! Daily, there are one or two new ones on the front porch. Just love those brown boxes with the familiar logo of my favorite online store -- the 2012 version of 'brown paper packages tied up with string'!
#3 Our local dairy has the best eggnog ever. We always include a bottle or two in our weekly order.
#4 Spending time with someone I love doing ordinary things. On Wednesday, I spent the day with my aunt. We baked. We cleaned some of the high spots in her apartment that she has a hard time reaching. We went to lunch.
#5 Simple traditions. When I was a child, this candy dish was always filled with colorful hard Christmas candies. It's something I continue to do and it reminds me of the year when my brother and I were little kids and bought the dish at a church bazaar for our mom.
I'm linking up with Susanne and friends for Friday Fave Five! Join us!
