A Christmas star


I set up our Christmas tree during the Thanksgiving weekend. 

It’ so pretty.

Tucker approves of the Christmas lights in his favourite window. 

I saw my grandchildren last weekend as well.

I happened to glance out of the living room window one morning and was treated to the most beautiful sunrise. 

In these darkest days of the year it’s nice to see some light. 

Just around the corner is the Marblehead Boat Yard and every year, at Christmas time, they put a giant star up on top of their crane. I came home from work a few days ago to see it shining high above the harbor.

It’s sort of reassuring in these times.
