One thousand gifts and still counting (1322-1357)

1322. snow resting on tree branches
silence in its fall
cloudy skies
blue light

snowball fights
puddles of coats and bibs
a scarf
the lack of concern in a child's play



1330. chocolate whipped cream
coffee in the afternoon
a good soup
cookies in the freezer

the UPS guy
peppercorn knobs
safe commutes home
a bench

Erin playing Leapster on the bench

a key in the search
soft bath mats
"love you" calls down a hall at bedtime
"just one more" hug and kiss

1342. and more snow
Winter Wipeout with my 8 year old
Monday, this one, today
bunched and huddled book reads on the couch

big, black birds
geese on farm fields, fishing for worms
library book runs
snow plows

piano music in the house, a sound like love
Kashi waffles
Zoopal plates
the clackety-clack of princess shoes across the floor

1254. Renditions of Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer, again and again
blue ribbon clothes pins on helper charts
the word mama
prayer
