Where are you Summer?

I am NOT a lover of cold weather. I dread it. I would love to live in a world of perpetual summertime. Okay, maybe not with humidity and bugs, but lots of warmth. That being said, I do love those mysterious, cloudy, overcast days. You know, the ones that whisper of a nice afternoon thunderstorm. There's nothing like sitting on the front porch watching the rain slowly track its wet footprints onto your sidewalk. But thunderstorms are for summer too, and here we are in the midst of Brrrrrrr. I'm trying to be positive, so here are some nice things about COLD - blankets, love them all, especially the handmade quilted variety. Scarves, because they make COLD at least a bit festive, and finally, warm soups and hot chocolate. These help thaw cold bones, like mine. It could be worse, we could live in ALASKA. Travis just had to spend four days in Alaska for work. I could feel the glacial breeze via cell phone! I'm glad he's home and warm with us. Here are a few snapshots he sent from the cell phone.

I stashed Lacey's little doll in Trav's suitcase. She got a big kick out of seeing her baby all over Alaska!

I'm kinda glad I live in the south too :) Oh...and I wanted to say thanks for reminding me about Picasa. We had it on our old computer, but never got it on our laptop, so I was glad that you shared that tip, because I had forgotten how much I really love it. You might see a lot more collages on our blog too because it's so easy, fast, and convenient...and did I say faster than downloading all the pictures on blogger.
