Raspberry Snow

Click To Bid
Snow. I wanted to paint snow this morning with raspberries tucked and cosy on a cushion of cake. I am thinking Benedryl is my new muse. I slept in until 10 o'clock!!!! Never happens. And the sun is out. I expect any moment to break into a rousing version of Zippity Do Dah....well almost. My friend Patti called me from North Carolina to tell me they had a slight "dusting" and it is still snowing in the mountains. We have known each other since the third grade, so it doesn't surprise me anymore that we are often on the same wavelength. Remember snow days as a kid? We used to hose down the street in front of our drive so the bus couldn't make it up the hill. Such freedom, a snow day. So I am tucking all that good stuff into this little tart and wishing you all the happiness of a snow day now and then. Meet you at Starbucks...don't forget your sled.

Cold here too, but no snow. When we were little we'd go sledding on snow days. As we were walking home we'd put snow in out boots so Mom would make us Hot Chocolate. I think she would have made it anyway if we'd have asked. Hot Chocolate with whipped cream and choco powder....secret ingredient the love.

Oh, snow in the boots, excellent! Much better than having your brother roll you in a drift just before you go in... :) JC

Snow days are signaled by the sound of shovel scraping against pavement in my book.
We had one last Friday and the threat of one last night but no show :(
Nice "snowy" tart

I 'v always wondered who does the drifts the snowplows pile up in the city? Everyman/women for themselves? I can see PB on her way to the pool, tunneling out. JC
