Winter . . .

In our house it is starting to show . . . 
 Holiday meals . . . Salad with pear, pecan, goat cheese and honey mustard dressing . . . 
 Brownies with swirled cream cheese and bits of candy-cane baked on top . . .
And our Christmas tree . . .  
Finally . . . It took us forever to get one. We always buy potted live trees, but this year they were so expensive we almost gave in and got a cut one.  But by the time we went to pick out one of those, all the Christmas-tree stands had sold out. So back to the plant nursery we went . . . And now everytime I look at the tree I feel so glad . . . It is so beautiful and someday will get to grow to be so tall.

                                                      Happy Holidays ~ Marica
