Just about to throw another log into the woodstove, as we have a NE wind & snowstorm going on, but just had to thank you Toritoo for the smiley face and the wonderful description of your gorgeous CA day! You truly are a great writer, in addition to your art glass & clothing design...you have an artist's eye for sure! Glad you had a 1/2 hr of pain relief! Maybe tomorrow it'll be a whole hour! :)
PALady, you can have this weather---and you WILL! We call it a "wintery mix" here---aka: slush! But they promise us 60's by Wednesdays! So I'll send you that later! But I want to enjoy it first!
You also mentioned a "theme song" in another post---I remember that episode of Ally McBeal from years ago: well, tonight after reading about sunny & lovely CA, thanks to Toritoo's eloquent prose, I wanna be a California girl too! In fact, that is now going thru my head, including the lyrics about the "Midwestern farmer's daughter, they keep their boyfriends warm at night..." LOL!! Well, tonight for sure!
Thanks Toritoo--I'll be a CA Girl from now on, until we warm up at least, next month!
Rest well everyone! I feel like we're all one diverse, multi-talented & supportive family! Such a great community of friends!
