Quiet Morning Christmas Tree

My guests are here but they are all asleep.   I thought I'd share a quick photo of what my view is, in the early morning as I have my hot mug of coffee.
 I have the fire going and apple cinnamon muffins are in the oven.   It wont be long before that scent has everyone waking up..
  The sun is just coming up and it looks like it might be a hazy winter day with temps only in the low 50's..
 We're going to see some of the local sites and who knows where that will lead us, so if I dont get to stop by your blog for a visit, thats why.

 The birds are just waking  and coming to the birdbath for their morning sip of water.  Its soooooooooo quiet..  Wish you were here~!

   I hope you all have a wonderful day~!
ps~  I was sitting at my desk when I took this photo.    behind each loveseat there is a desk and chair. The sofa's keep that part hidden and with the lamps they just appear to be sofa tables..  Just thought I'd explain that :-)  It allows us to play on our laptops without anyone ever realizing this also functions as an office for 2....

Our C'mas tree is in the den, so we do spend lots of time there. I love the serene, beautiful white tree and the room too and it's great you can enjoy it all day.

Your home looks so warm and cozy lit up by the tree! Very smart idea about the desks. It's early here, too, and I wish our tree was here already!

Have a great day with your guests!

Sonny-What a beautiful room...and I can FEEL the quiet there. It is wonderful. I have a "desk" behind our sofa, too. Works great.

What do you mean you are going to entertain guests and not be on the computer for the whole day? Is that allowed?;>) xo Diana

Morning Sonny,
It looks dreamy and lovely. Is that
deer on your fridge? Where ever it is, it looks great!! Very pretty tree, I always love seeing our tree
and lights early in the morning and late at night when ever the house is quiet. A great contemplative retreat.
Have a great time with your company.
Blessings, Nellie
