Now . . . if somebody could just convince this little Indian boy that it really is time to put the shorts away!

A Winter Wonderland
Winter has officially hit in Wisconsin. The temps have begun to consistently drop, and again we are crazy enough to be convinced into thinking that thirty degrees above zero is a warm front. There is fresh, clean snow on the ground to lure us into dreaming about ice skating and sliding. Hibernation mode seems to be setting in as well, with thoughts turning to books, quilts, and hot chocolate with cool-whip and sprinkles on top. Winter's not so bad: there's Christmas and birthday's and lots of good food. Everyone is settling in here for a long cold spell; critters and people alike. We'll hope to stall off any thoughts of spring for at least a couple more months when all those seed catalog's start filling the mailbox and our minds begin to think, once again, warm thoughts.
