You Got Mail

December 23, 2011

I view winter as a time to rest. Ideally I would love to just hunker around a fireplace all winter, reading, writing, making soup and trying out new bread recipes. Hmm! It’s a very nice thought.. We were not prepared for snow when we encountered it last weekend. The elevation is 5,800 located in the Angeles Oaks area of the San Bernardino Mts. in Southern Ca.  From our home to yours….

Winter’s Rest

Gentle is the snow that falls

Beauty is what winter brings

In the sing-song of the rain or wind

Quiet is the earth as it settles

In for a long winter nap..

A time to embrace thoughts

Sifting and shifting of the

Old and in with the new…r gould

There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven..Ecclesiastes 3:11

    I love the winter. Yes, to sit inside by the fire – but also to be out there skiing even when the days are short. Merry Christmas to you!
