Silent Night

That's what's playing in the living room right now. Adam lit a fire in the fireplace for the first time, this evening. Julia is enjoying it too, and now she has her favorite soft pillow and blankie on the floor. It feels like the season has begun.

It's dark outside now, but only a few minutes ago, Adam and I both noted how unusual the light of dusk looked. It had a rich, golden tone. The fallen leaves and tree trunks glowed.


The boys are out having fun (both of them with groups of girls, strangely enough!). Anna is downstairs with her best friend watching a movie. The logs are crackling and rolling around. Adam is relaxing (finally!), which makes my wifely heart glad. I may go in the kitchen and make some brownies. Maybe.
