A Quiet Christmas Morning

Christmas morning this year was quite different from what I am used to but it was still a wonderful day.

 I started the day with a walk in the park.  It had snowed on Christmas Eve so it was a perfect winters day; cool, crisp, the snow crunched under your feet and when the sun came out the snow sparkled.

 I only met one other person on my walk.  A woman out jogging.  She was dressed all in clothing that runners wear and I wondered if she had unwrapped everything earlier that morning.
 We exchanged Merry Christmas and I continued with my walk down to the river. 

 I loved the fact that on a Tuesday morning at 8 am there was ONE car on the street.  Any other day at this time there would have been 4 lanes of traffic bumper to bumper.  It was nice knowing that no one was rushing to work or to the shopping mall and that everyone was home with their family having breakfast, opening gifts and just being together.
Once home I packed my knitting bag and spent the afternoon with my parents and the evening with wonderful friends. 
This picture was taken on Christmas Eve and I think it sums up what Christmas is all about; having fun and making memories with family and friends.
