"Even dust sparkles when it catches a ray of sunlight." Read that in a book I opened at random earlier today. So that could excuse me from dusting my shelves. Why does this time of year have to get so hectic? We should be hibernating, like the bears. After all, the climate has been similar to the North Pole all these weeks, and I just feel like climbing into my cosy bed by teatime, when it's already pitch dark outside. But I must now finish writing cards, cook a meal and wrap presents for friends, coming to visit from afar.
