Well it is winter in northern VA, cold and wet. The pretty snow of a few days ago is but a memory now, and there will be three more days of cold and wet. My daughter is wishing she was back in San Diego, where the days are predictably warm and sunny. But then they have just had 6 inches of rain, so even the predictable isn't. As Christmas draws closer I look forward to seeing my son too. The holidays can get so harried and rushed, I want to just slow down and enjoy the advent, the anticipation. Remember to breathe and slow down, and do a little art. And if it were to snow a little, that would be okay too.
