Let It Snow!

Yesterday's tragedy at the Omaha mall is still fresh in my mind, especially since I just watched the news conference where the victims' names were released. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in this horrific, senseless act.
Snow and Hot Cocoa
I woke up to a beautiful white world - big, fat flakes continue to fall here in Nebraska and it's simply gorgeous outside. Driving isn't too fun, but after years of dealing with the white stuff, you learn how to drive in it. :-)
Last night my daughter and I went over to my mom's new apartment - it is so very nice. She has a fireplace and had a warm, cozy fire going. We made hot cocoa, frosted sugar cookies, and read stories. The storytelling was my daughter's idea. She had brought a bunch of her Scooby Doo books and a few of them were winter-related, so each of us took a turn reading a story to the rest. It was a nice, relaxing evening.
Tonight I plan to stay home and enjoy my Christmas decorations, maybe work on a few freelance projects, and do a bit of research for my next novel. And I saved a sugar cookie from last night, so I plan to have it and a hot cup of cocoa for my evening snack!


  1. just keep that snow in Nebraska. It's staying in the 60's today although tomorrow is going to go down into the 50's. That is chilly enough for me.

  2. I'm very upset that the snow seems to have skipped us! Glad you're enjoying it... have a cup of cocoa for me!

  3. Yes, that was tragic.

    Sounds like you had a nice evening.

    I want snow.

  4. Yum!! Making sugar cookies with a grandma is such a treat- it's great that your daughter is able to do that :) Sounds like the perfect evening for a day with snow!

  5. I bet you're all still reeling from the news.

    Snow. [stamps foot]

  6. Yes, it was tragic and, as you say, senseless.

    Enjoy that snow. (I'm sulking now.)


I love to hear from you!
