A new tradition for Carl’s G.I.F.T. challenge — mistletoe!
Walter De La Mare
Sitting under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
One last candle burning low,
All the sleepy dancers gone,
Just one candle burning on,
Shadows lurking everywhere:
Someone came, and kissed me there.
Tired I was; my head would go
Nodding under the mistletoe
(pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
No footsteps came, no voice, but only,
just as I sat there, sleepy, lonely,
Stooped in the still and shadowy air
Lips unseen — and kissed me there.
None of the local floral shops had any mistletoe in stock. Apparently there isn’t much demand for it anymore. I found some at the floral department of a large grocery store.
We’ve really been enjoying having this stuff hanging around!
Jessica stands under it giggling, waiting for her Daddy to pass by. This time she got me!
In all the years I’ve been married to her son, I’ve never kissed Mom D — until now!!!
Anjelia has the cutest little Santa girl outfit. She needed some black boots to complete the ensemble. I purchased her a pair this evening. She was sooooo excited about her new boots that she wore them to bed!! She had to change out of her footie jammies into a nightgown, so she could wear them. I had to sneak in the dark and pull her covers down. It’s so dang cute!!!
