{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ December 8, 2013

Happy Advent!  Alas, I have no Thanksgiving pictures to share.  We were traveling for my nephew's wedding, and I didn't bring a camera.  Actually, I forgot it.  Actually, it never crossed my mind to bring it.  I'm such a failure as a photographer . . . So let's just move on to Advent, shall we?


My parents gave us this nativity set in the first few years of our marriage.  I have always loved it for its understated elegance and simplicity, and every year it occupies a prominent place in our home. Baby Jesus will make his appearance on Christmas Eve.


Hannah knitted this lovely shawl for my birthday.  It's a beautiful deep teal.  Since I couldn't model it *and* take a picture at the same time, this will have to do.  I really like the fringe!


Our new phone book came in the mail this week.  Here it is in all its diminutive glory.  (The Altoids tin is for scale.)  It measures 5.5 x 9 inches and boasts a whopping 64 pages, white and yellow.  There are some inconveniences to living in a small town, but there are also many advantages.  For one, I have never lived in a place with more community spirit. For another, it's the safest place we have ever lived.  Also, I never knew the wonders of a farm store till I moved here.  No, that's not sarcasm.  Ours is a great place, carrying everything from guns and ammo to animal feed to clothing to canning supplies.  Big R, where have you been all my life??
