Friday Nature Table
This is the start of our Winter table. Instead of starting it on Solstice I decided to begin it now. November and Autumn feel very far away. I placed everything this morning before E gets up and remarked to J that it looked so cold and barren. Exactly like winter. I used a white silk scarf for snow and left the barren earth tan cloth on the table as well. I had planned on placing the snow scarf and a yet-to-be-made King Winter on the occasion of our first snow but as that was last week the scarf will stay but King Winter will wait.
We have a Nativity as well but we have placed it on a special shelf. E was so desperate for a baby Jesus that Joseph was a stand in, and since she is so tiny yet (2.10) I went ahead and put Jesus in the manger. Whom she promptly removed to Marys arms "Baby Jesus, wants out, wants milk milk!"
