Today. My husband and I, for the first time this winter, skiing in the woods of my childhood, where my father used to take me, the two of us, alone, blue sky, ice cold sunny winter weather, snow on the trees. Beautiful. Wonderful. Love.

This morning, I woke up to a pleasant surprise: My very own Advent Calendar, wrapped in paper marked with a T, hanging innocently on the children's Advent Calendar. A lovely little book (one of Murakami's favorites, so I better like it!), marked with which section to read which of the next 24 days. And I can't access the pages for tomorrow and the days after that without ripping out the red tabs. Clever. And very, very cute!
