Dreaming of Snow -- Again

No -- no snow here -- instead another grey, rainy day. We're expecting over an inch of rain -- and all the while, I'm wishing it were snow. I heard on the news that Alaska has received 18 FEET of snow -- wow! That's a bit more snow than I'd want too - but a dusting of white, the welcome hush that comes with it, and the clean, clear air -- yes --- ! That's what I'm dreaming of!

It's been a catch-up kind of week with preparations for next year's events, budgets, and workshops. We have a late night tonight but an exciting program on landscaping with herbs. We've a full house, so by the time everyone leaves this evening, it'll be after 9 pm.

I've been preparing for my own workshop next week- Cooking with Herbs. I've found some unusual recipes to share so I'll be cooking this weekend to prepare for Tuesday's presentation.

Mom continues to improve and seems to be doing well. She still has a long road to recover her freedom of motion but from the sound of her voice, she is growing in strength. And today, she celebrates her 89th birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! Again, thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Stay dry today -- that rain is going to be a 'big event' all along the East Coast.

Glad to hear your mom is doing better...89!!! Happy Birthday to her!

This is lovely. You've captured the softness of the snowy scene. I agree that a dusting of snow would be nice for a change. Enjoy your workshop...sounds like fun.

Gorgeous fir trees against the snow and your beautiful mountains.

We too had heavy rain this morning and I grumbled as I slogged up the hill to the eye dr's office for my annual but then I thought: this could be snow (which is predicted tomorrow) and I quit grumbling!

Happy Happy Birthday to your mom. How wonderful that she has reached this age and that she is improving. Still keeping you and all the family in my heart and thoughts.

Big hugs,
