How many days till Spring? The answer today is 20 days and counting, ( I found a website that actually counts for you, https://days.to/spring/2020.
Perhaps you are like me and just done with Winter? I have had enough of cold, blowing snow, dark days and just BLAH days.
Don’t get me wrong I like the festivities of Christmas, the decorating the time spent with family and friends, but come January and February I am completely done with “Old Man Winter!”
I like to have fresh flowers in the house, especially this time of the year. It is one of my guilty pleasures is keeping my house filled with flowers.
I also like to add more warmth using comfy pillows, blankets and lighting. I love to have candles all over and little strings of white lights all over the house. I use the battery operated candles so I don’t have to worry about any mishaps.
I keep my white lights up well beyond the Christmas season, to bring cheer to the outside of the house. Some will disagree with this, but I love the twinkle in the snow at night.
Here is a little tune called “White Lights”, from a new band I have discovered. Check out the link below to watch this great band.
