...12.12.10...










as you can see.
winter has arrived.
and it is still coming.
this started about seven o'clock last night.
winter storm warning right now.
the white stuff is coming down
pretty steadily.
doesn't seem like it will let up anytime soon!!
comfort food today.
scalloped potatoes and ham?
anyway...
i am inside with my coffee.

this book.
i have had.
i am guessing.
since second grade.
and i say that.
because it's 5th printing was 1972.
i was a second grader in 1972.
i love that i signed it.
my middle name is ann.
however.
i wrote "and".
like i've connected my first name.
with my last.
what great little glimpses.
into the past.
this is a book about wishing.
a series of wishes from a little girl.
and a doll.
the wishes brought them together in the end.
"if i had not wished." says holly.
Christmas is nearing.
and i find myself wishing.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.
robin.

Even though it's cold...it sure feels like Christmas ~ we guess that we prefer it to a green Christmas :) Love your pictures of the snow coming down - it was a doozy, wasn't it?! Cute signature...we were wondering about that "and" - what fun to remember things from childhood - but then again, Christmas is our favorite time to do that!
Enjoy the rest of your week Robin!
