Oh! Baby It's Cold & Snowy Outside! Plus A Return To Chidlhood

Here is an updated photo!
I took this photos at 9:00 pm last evening. Lot's more of this beautiful stuff (well, beautiful when I don't have to drive I mean) is still falling. It's that small crystalline structure that glistens in the light. What an unusual winter we have had so far!

My cousin has been clearing out a lot of old family memorabilia. She has, thankfully, sent me many things that bring back long forgotten memories. Letters with my mother's beautiful & unusual handwriting, letters in my grandmother's clear hand , and lots of other letters from family members to my beloved Grandmother, Thea. I have to share two things that were in the package that made me chuckle quite a bit. Two pictures I had drawn and sent to my grandmother when I was 11 or 12! Aren't these dramatic! I don't know how most 11 years old draw, but somehow I think it's better than this! I am so very grateful to my cousin for the wonderful family momentos she sends my way. These objects and letters really warm my heart!
I wonder what I was thinking? Veronica Lake? No! She was way before my generation!
