My 10 favorite things this winter

My ten favorite things this winter...

 1. More time with my sons. I love when they are home and inside!
 2. Snuggling with my husband, the most amazing man in the world (no joke!)
 3. Hot drinks.  (Hot Chocolate, hot tea or the occasional white mocha from Starbucks.)
 4. Warm meals.
 5. Wearing scarves.
 6. The snow! We haven't had enough to complain.
 7. The extra downtime because it's too cold to be out and about.
 8. Having a fire in the fireplace, so romantic and relaxing.
 9. Burning candles.
10. Dreaming about the spring flowers that will be here in a few months.

What are your favorite things this winter?

I love the crunchy sound the snow makes when you run on it. Second only to the sound of running on leaves in the fall. :)

How the snow lights up the evening sky and hushes the world.

Hi Amy,
So glad to see you are back. We are actually not in Minnesota right now. My always healthy husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the end of November. It was very shocking but we have been picking up the pieces and are now at Stanfird Hospital in Palo Alto where he us getting an unusual tyoe of radiation called SBRT, which we hope will be helpful. I am enjoying the nicer weather. We are hoping that Jud will become operable after this treatment. It is really his only real chance to get there and have a few more years of living.
Please remember is in your prayers.
