I woke this morning to find a light dusting of snow outside. Not enough to play in, but it's pretty! I've been watching Christmas movies for the past few days. Yesterday, the first Christmas card of the season arrived in the mail. What a lovely surprise! I haven't even started my cards yet. Yes, I'm procrastinating as usual. I could be writing them out now, but I had the urge to visit a couple blogs instead.

All Creatures Great and Small is playing on the television. It's a favorite of mine! I love the scenes of the English countryside, the animals, the stories. It's a gentle step back in time. I made myself a homestyle caramel latte with Folgers coffee, 2 teaspoons of caramel syrup, and a splash of Half and Half. A bit indulgent, but so tasty on a cold day.

With all that is going on in the world, and even in the lives of some people I know, I am feeling thankful for my family and my friends. I don't want to take any of it for granted. Each day we are given is a blessing! Wishing you joyful days!

Can't stand the stuff!
Hope your Thanksgiving was warm and wonderful! Headed down the road to Christmas now...
Having Larry pick up some rhubarb at the grocery, if he can find any, to make a crisp. Love a good crisp.

Donna, I only love snow for a short time. The first fluffy, big flakes are so pretty, then comes the icy roads, dirty slush, and cold! Haha! Thanksgiving was quiet, but lovely. Rhubarb Crisp is one of my favorites! My husband made a Green Apple Crisp a couple nights ago, and it was heavenly! It was good to hear from you, and your card was the first of the season! Thank you! It made me smile!
