Ending the Christmas Season
I'm enjoying the Christmas lights on the shrubs on the back bank through the end of the Christmas Season. At church last Sunday, the readings celebrated Epiphany, when the Bible readings talk about the Magi coming to pay homage to the newly born King of the Jews, the Christ.
But today, January 6th, is actually Dia de los Reyes, the Epiphany: The Christ is revealed as King for Gentiles as well as Jews.
Our Valley has been under thick fog for days now, which means that it's very cold (for here) and damp and drearily foggy gray. Even with the woodstove going, we've been chilled and -- OMG -- wearing shoes to keep our feet warm.
A month and a week until the trees start blooming.
