"The best way to observe a fish is to become a fish."
~Jacques Yves Cousteau~
A reminder of warmer climes. The only thing I remember about this, is that I took the photo of what I thought was a very pretty embossed tile in a restaurant, the name of which I have long forgotten. I liked it a lot, loved it in fact. I looked for something similar but was unsuccessful. At least I have my photo. I added the frame in Paint Shop Pro.
I have sent parcels off (thanks to our son who delivered them to the post office the week before last), along with cards and letters for family and friends to receive before the 25th. Several started arriving at our house a couple of weeks ago. Thank you family and friends! I still love getting snail mail.
The days are ticking right along. I am going to have to push myself out the door as the weather gets colder. As long as it isn’t raining or snowing, I don't really mind the cold as long as I am bundled up. I am a winter person. One of the many things I love about this season, is getting the sweaters out, along with the woolly hats, scarfs and gloves.
I also enjoy a neighborhood walk in the evenings, and smelling the wood from fireplaces, seeing wisps of smoke floating out the chimneys. It is fun to look at the twinkling lights of Christmas trees showing through the windows. There seem to be more decorations in people’s front yards this year. When we get back inside the house chilled to the bone, I make a cup of hot cocoa topped off with sweetened whipped cream and marshmallows. It is a winter treat looked forward to.
Wishing you your own winter treats out there, and take very good care of yourselves.
