A Shorter Absence Than Expected

Oh yesterday's happiness. Early morning and white drops of snow began to fall from the sky. One look out the frosty window and I drifted back to my dreams. Hours later I was decked in scarf, sweater, snow boots and all. The air pinched my cheeks as I twirled in the wintriness that resembled a snow globe. Picture after picture was snapped with numbing hands. Christmas tunes played a few houses down. Molly and Slinky too fearful to leave the front porch. Silly city dogs. But Chance frolicked in the sheets of ice.

The heater buzzed while the Christmas tree twinkled in the front window. Flickr updates were made, while Andrew Belle's Pandora radio station kept me company. Presents were wrapped. & My nephew's no-sew Spiderman blanket was complete after cutting & tying fuzzy material.

The night ended with a steamy cup of hot chocolate and Molly snoring on the floor beside me, as the parents and I watched old Disney cartoons from my childhood. I'd never realized how cruel those chipmunks were to poor Donald. ★

Recommended Christmas cartoons for a relaxing day.

Toy Tinkers
Santa's Workshop
