Dusk in winter California style. Cobalt blue sky. Cool enough to bundle up. Snowflake patterns beneath my feet. I have never loved winter so much!
Plenty to see. Take mid-century splendor, for example. I love a big glassy storefront. Saves me from having to go inside and do my bull-in-a-china-shop routine.
Santa, please leave all of these chandeliers hanging from my oak trees. Oh, and if you could rig up the wiring that would be cool too.
I'll be home on Saturday. No rush.
I can't contain my excitement when I see glittery shiny Christmas finery. Makes me want to clap my hands together.
A cautionary letter from Mama Moss arrived 2 days ago:
I watched on TV that the weather in North California was treacherous, lots of snow. You better take your chains for the tires. Also take blankets, water and extra food – PEANUT BUTTER. I am not kidding! Watch the weather channel yourself to make sure. Take de-icer, shovel and whatever else you need. Better still DON'T GO. Play it safe. Also wear boots and extra heavy coat and gloves. Call me when you get there so I won't worry.
