We continue to have bitterly cold weather with just tiny amounts of snow. Fact is as I’m sitting here today there is no snow but it is still very cold. It’s a mystery to me how the heatless sun can still manage to melt off the little snow we’ve gotyet melt it does…even in the shadier places where I’d think it would hang on. Inside things have been a joy to me…especially when cookie time rolls around again! We really have enjoyed doing this together…making plain sugar cookiesinto little works of art. Not much could look more Christmas like then that don’t you think? Not all the cookies were created equally but here is the pick of the liter: . I went out today to get some more outside pictures but was greeted with a bitterly cold wind and no snow, just a lot of dead leaves and such…I have to say it’s pretty hard to get inspired by this. I trudged in and looked under the treeand I realize that though there are gifts there you all are some of the most wonderful gifts God has ever given me!
