Cookies and Spring

We're crawling closer to Christmas, it seems. The first batches of cookies are in the pantry (thanks for your help, Rachel!) and old friends are dropping by. The stories! The kids are busy in their private corners making secret things. Christmas has the unmistakable flavor of things past. It is probably no coincidence that the New Year celebration comes so quickly thereafter, before the world can become irretrievably steeped in old tea leaves. I'm anxious to get on with the new making, myself. Naoko has great pics on her blog that reminded me, somehow, of the cool rinsing nature of spring.

Yes. Just when I want winter to end, it begins. As soon as Christmas has come and gone I'm digging out my pictures of my spring garden.

No problem, Charmi...I had a lot of fun. My family also thanks you for the cookies...they liked them.
