Snow - please.

Sure could use a little dusting of white today. After the intense socializing for days and days the post-Christmas blahs are settling in around me. It's damp and gloomy. My son and husband are discussing computer stuff. (Borrrrinngg ) I'd love to turn on the TV and lose myself in an old black and white fantasy, but my sweet heart doesn't love them as I do - and I am getting a foot rub - so I'll just sit here tapping away trying to conjure goose down snowflakes filling the air, covering the bare ground and giving my heart a happy, glittery song.

The painting is Claude Monet's The Magpie - maybe my favorite Monet canvas.

A foot rub? Does your sweet heart have a single brother? ;-)

By the way, I adore that painting too.

We have a dusting of snow on the ground today, but I would love a nice thick snowcovering like the one in this picture.

I join in your song for more snow - please.

Don't you just love the COLORS in that painting? Lavender and golds are so sublime....and that footrub is also. Seems like many at this time of year are just going "Ahhhhhhhhhhh."

Cuppa - We're still gray and snowless - they promised sun today and it shone for 2 minutes :0(

Bonita - Leave it to you to find the lavender and gold. Yes, yes - I see them now. Yes - sublime. Thanks for helping me 'see'.

Laurie - No brothers - you're right - I should have him cloned :0)
