The Joy of Winter














For my whole life I have been cold. Escaped to Florida
for many years. At 80 it is imperative to learn to be
thankful for all seasons. Sassy will never go to Alaska
or Antartica but she can love the ice flow on the Hudson.
Such beauty, not to be missed.

Playground Mittens/ Happy 2019


















Sassy is knitting "playground mittens." Ms. Jennifer
has playground duty this year. So, it seemed a good
time to make colorful mittens to keep her hands warm
 and teach her little ones their colors.

May your new year be filled playground fun and your
world spin with new adventures, different
colorways.

December 21st

And so the Shortest Day came and the year died
And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
Came people singing, dancing,
To drive the dark away.
They lighted candles in the winter trees;
They hung their homes with evergreen;
They burned beseeching fires all night long
To keep the year alive.
And when the new year’s sunshine blazed awake
They shouted, revelling.
Through all the frosty ages you can hear them
Echoing behind us – listen!
All the long echoes, sing the same delight,
This Shortest Day,
As promise wakens in the sleeping land:
They carol, feast, give thanks,
And dearly love their friends,
And hope for peace.
And now so do we, here, now,
This year and every year.

Remember the Children




















Light a candle and remember the children of
Sandy Hook. Their loss is not to be forgotten.
First graders snuffed out on a December morning.

The post is a day late. The memory is still fresh.

Pray for children, all children this season meant to
inspire peace.
