Supply run adventure

Yesterday reminded me mildly of what a standard, routine day used to be like.

Love on branches

Imagine a tree, decorated to please.

With glitter and glass,

And shiny trinkets.

Some are made by the hand of a child.

Others, handed down from generations ago.

But the new year beckons, and for some, that means something:
