Let it snow
Today was nice--I had the day off from work, but the girls had school, so I got some time to myself. The highlight of my morning was being able to watch TV without having anyone complain about what I put on. (Yay for BBC America!) I had lunch out with a couple friends and got to do some (mostly window) shopping as well. The only things I came home with were these candles and holders. As I mentioned before, I love snowflakes. I particularly like these holders because they aren't specific to Christmas, so they can stay out after the holidays. I don't buy a lot of candles, since I'm not fond of a lot of scented stuff. Yes, I'm that person who buys unscented everything (laundry detergent, etc.). The few things I do buy are usually in the citrus family, especially grapefruit and tangerine. These candles aren't citrus-scented, but they are food-related. The white ones are vanilla, and the red one in the middle is cranberry. I actually like that one a lot, and may pick up a couple more. It's too early for a lot of decorations, but I'm getting excited about the holiday season.
