Despite being an avowed country girl, I must confess the song “Silver Bells: It’s Christmas Time in the City” is one of my favorite secular Christmas tunes. Go figure.
For the first time, we’re living urban during Christmas and it’s kinda neat. For example, yesterday I kept hearing what sounded like drums, but couldn’t place the sound. After a few minutes, I looked out our back window and saw a small three-person music group, socially distanced in an elevated parking lot, serenading passers-by. It was great.
Naturally, all storefronts and windows are dolled up, including the World’s Most Fabulous Used Bookstore that I’ll be very sorry to leave behind. (Let’s just say I’ve given them a fair bit of business in the short time we’ve been here.)
I also liked seeing this Little Free Library, something I’d heard about but had never seen in person.
It’s a pity this little nook is so far away from our place, or I’d stuff it with a number of books I’ve read and can pass on to others.
And there have been other pretty sights too, such as a new snowfall on landscaping and trees.
It’s probably no accident I tend to focus on little bits of nature, such as this snow-covered nest left over from last summer…
Or snow bending down branches outside our window.
And of course, people are adding pretty touches of color to their homes.
One evening we experienced a strange phenomenon. On a moonless night — remember, moonless — the air was lit up as if the moon was full. We postulated the city lights were bouncing off both a low cloud cover as well as snow on the ground. The photos below (un-enhanced in any way) were taken at 9:30 at night, at a time when our street is normally very dark since we have no streetlights. It was almost light enough to read by. Top photo is from our front porch, bottom photo from the back of the house.
But despite the temporary charms of city life, it’s time for us to leave and move to our new home. Today — Sunday — is moving day. So we’ll say goodbye to the lights and color, and get ready for another chapter of our Adventure.
