OK, who's had snow? Would you be willing to share some?
Although, if I could transport myself to Australia's summer at no cost--I would be tempted by that too.
I'm loving getting ready for the holidays. this year. Last year, Santa announced her retirement, and my adult children were enlisted as replacements. Now, my most taxing duties after work are cookie baking and decorating my wacky Charlie Brown tree.

They hold special ornaments really well.
It's wacky--we like it that way.
I enjoy trips to the mailbox for old-fashioned Christmas cards and photos. This week, the most delightful winter poem swap arrived from Janice Scully. She's recently back from some amazing travels and shared a lovely Madonna medal and s beautiful mini-quilt. The colors are so festive and the sewn lines are wonderfully straight. I've done a bit of sewing lately and my lines do NOT look as straight and even as hers. I'm using my mini-quilt to keep my tea cup warm these late fall mornings--at least until I need a refill and my senior cat steals it as a pillow.

By Janice Scully
I have an hour,
to wonder in peace,
touch the grass,
watch the geese.
when my chores are done,
I'll ponder the sky,
by the apple tree,
and hope to spy
come whirring by.
I sincerely hope you are enjoying this time of year wherever you live. Peace on Earth remains an earnest wish and prayer.
Our wonderful friend at More Art 4 All is hosting this week's round-up. Make sure to stop in and say hello. Thank you, Michelle.
