ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec.17

I haven’t checked a weather report for other parts of the country, but how  can we be so blessed to have this perfect weather. Everyone who can, should do something outside and if you can’t do that, open a window and sit beside it and just breathe.Even though I do not celebrate Christmas, I appreciated a winter scene and a possibility of snow at this time when we lived in the midwest.We would leave for our Michigan cottage the same day that school let out for the Holiday season. We were happy not to see any snow until we got to our country  road. Then , after a four hour drive, it would be a magical return to our cottage. moonlight, clear sky , sparkling stars with no street lights to interfere, and snow. What more could you want when you had cross country skies waiting. I look out now to a swaying palm tree, sunshine ,blue sky ,green grass,and those days seem far behind. For now, I’ll take the memory and sunblock .

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
