Santa street in Toronto

For the next few days I will probably be posting photos. It's a very busy time for
of both work, and prepping for the holidays in whatever way possible. 

It has been a wonderful day. As I write this I can hear Steven singing in the kitchen while
he makes supper. Today we tried to figure out where we would put the Christmas trees
we bought for our porches. Just the sight of them sitting outside on our porches made
me feel happy. And our Siamese cat, Fiona, absolutely loves the smell of Christmas trees.
She was out in the cold, on a chair on the back porch, rubbing her face against the tree branches. 
I get it. I love the smell of Christmas trees too.

The photo tonight is of a street we go by on the way to the market on Saturday. The whole street
puts up huge Santa Claus figures all along the street every year. There is something so touching, and
delightful about this practice. We talked about how it must have started, when a downtown
Toronto neighbourhood street got together, and decided that they would display Santas at every
house, every year. So sweet.

I hope you had a super day, and wish you a great one tomorrow.
