My area of Colorado has seen a lot of snow lately. Despite taking a trek on foot with children and man yesterday, we've been, for the most part, sitting by the fire, watching tv and playing Dungeons and Dragons. Part of the problem when we go out is that snow, invariably, gets in the boots of our youngest, causing her to whine the whole way. I remember this incredibly well. It doesn't help that she pulls the laces out of her boots to play with them.
Cloud covers roll over the Rockies this morning as I sit near the fire, contemplating a day of decorating the tree and making ginger bread cookies with icing. If I smoked a pipe, I'd be smoking one now, making large rings, if I was talented that way.
I have not decided what to do with this blog. My interests are all over the place and a blog needs a theme. I will take the holiday season to think about what I want to do online, if anything. I wish you all a joyful winter solstice time.
