my 2011 christmas love list

poinsettiasThings I love about the Christmas season:
– working on my computer in the evenings by twinkly Christmas tree light.
– the smell of fresh pine
– Christmas at Eastside, my terrific job there and the incredible church family I get to serve with, eat with, hang with at 9 Christmas services.
Peppermint Bark.
-Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe-Joes (at about $2.99 – considerably cheaper than the peppermint bark).
– Flannel sheets.
– Mittens, not gloves.
– The Vince Guaraldi Christmas album.
– Starbuck’s Cinnamon Dolce Latte.
– Christmas cards in the mail.
– The movie Elf. And Christmas Vacation.
– This Harry Connick Christmas album.
– Kettle Korn, when you can get it.
– In southern California, the Christmas Boat Parade.
– My own killer butter rum cake. It’s the best. Ask anyone.
– Conversations with people at the mall who would never otherwise talk to you.
– A fire in the fireplace.
– Hot chocolate with Amaretto.
– The hope inherent in Christmas, that “…All shall be well and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well…”
