Agreed!!! I could do 3-4 weeks of beautiful snow in January...then bring on spring, longer days, & warm weather!!!

But every year I buy more...especially more versions of this! This year I got an annotated version and I'll tell ya what I have decided I am going to start the minute Halloween is over.
And yes, I am not ready for summer and my beautiful mutch waited for and anticipated armth to leave me (although it hasn't been much of a warm summer for us). And oh, January hits like a desolate, bleak ice storm and I start counting down until March/April when greenery and bunnies return. But until then, here we are on the verge of holiday time, the most wonderful time of the year!!!!

Maybe we should start reading NOW!!! Actually, I did start reading Redbird Christmas, but it came due back to the library! (Kindle lending) I have read it before though! Time for a new one!
