I called home(Maine) they are getting hit pretty hard...lots of snow.
I want a storm, a blanket of white, the comfort of curling up inside and justifying cocoa and crafting.
I know I don't need to justify it, but I do love the peaceful, calm look of the fluffy white flakes
dancing in the wind. It brings back wonderful memories of all things snow, sledding, making a snowman/snowwoman and making homemade vanilla ice cream..(we used snow instead of crushed ice).
Instead, I guess I will sort thru white items and make a grouping...sometimes this will satisfy, or
go browse my photo albums of Maine and Alaska.
I guess I can pretend it is a snow day and do what I want, but it just isn't the same. We have a
tradition when it snows, we make homemade molasses cookies the size of elephant ears or ginger snaps. It is a team effort, everyone has to be involved you can mix, shape or bake them.
I will be patient and hold out for Mother Nature's glistening white blanket and the aroma of
ginger in my house. I will share the recipe, soon...
