and friday has arrived

Good morning everyone! One thing I love about winter is being awake for sunrise. This morning (well, about 45 minutes ago), I was doing some dishes and noticed this brilliant pink/orange color out of the corner of my eye. I turned around to look out the window and saw this beautiful sunrise. Of course I grabbed my camera and ran upstairs to the little balcony off the back of our house. Even though it's shared between all the neighbors here, mostly the upstairs people use the balcony and we use the front porch (in the summer, that is!). But I've found that the balcony is just perfect for photographing over the tops of all the houses in my neighborhood. It was beautiful indeed.

I'm looking forward to a very quiet weekend...a little party tonight, some baking, organizing (and planning!) of gifts to give, a haircut, and checking out (not participating in!) a small craft fair on Sunday. What are your plans for this fine December weekend? I hope they're good ones.

ps: I did get to work on a couple of decorations (thanks for the ideas!) and am not quite finished yet. I'll be sure to share them this weekend!
