Sunset Jan. 11, 2010 With Snow Still on the Mountain Road

Wow! Your sunset photos, the snow, and your dog are just fantastic. What a lovely posting. You are so fortunate to live on the mountain with such pretty scenery.

Hello Brenda Kay, Now that the snow has melted and I'm actually able to drive down the mountain again, I realize how fortunate I was to be here all those long snowbound days. It was unbelievably beautiful. I'm
glad you like the pictures.

It's so pretty!!! And Sasha just looks like she OWNS that landscape there!!! I'm almost well ... still coughing, but I'm feeling better FINALLY!!! Longing for home now .... I love you!

Hello Lynn, Each time I talk to you, I hope to hear strength in your voice. Most of all, I want you to be well and able to come home. It has been the coldest winter ever, you know. I'm bundled up and hunkered down like the perennials, hoping not to get zapped, dreaming of spring.

If we all survive, and we shall, Spring and summer are going to be big time busy with the anthology coming out and with my new poetry book being published in july.

I will want to have a party!

I have not been able to do much planning, but I am down for a book signing at Phillips and Lloyd's
the first weekend in August. I can't wait until then to see you though.
