Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
As many of you know, we've had a drought in Texas this year. Lately - a few intermittent days of rain. This past weekend, cold and rain dominated the forecast. I relished its arrival.
|Stay in bed. Surround yourself with hundreds of catalogs (that have your postman hating your guts), a laptop, and a credit card. Start and complete all Christmas shopping while tucked in the warmth of a comforter.|
|Get the bread machine going while getting out of bed to make a new cup of tea.|
|Keep it going, all day long. The scent of a sweet bread filling the house. Oh, yeah. Switch from tea to wine and get your journal out.|
|Relish the beauty of the loaves before wrapping them to give to your friends.|
Set up the tree.
|Go downstairs and watch the Green Bay Packers.|
