Winter Friendships

Taking a few days off to catch up on overdue visits with dear friends.
Share a cup of tea, a piece of homemade Christmas cake, and swap Christmas gifts.
Be well !



"Winter, a lingering season,
is a time to gather golden moments,
embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour. "

Have fun in your visits. Do people actually still make fruit cake in Tennessee? I'm one of those people who loves it, but never sees it.

Oh Jo I hope you and your family had the very best Christmas this year! I was not online over the holidays so I missed all my Blog friends and wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your family the happiest and most blessed New Year! Here's to 2012!

Hi Jo, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas... Amazing how quickly it's over!!!!!

I am taking a week off--but catching up on some of my blogging. Love that winter poem... I am one who loves winter.. It's the time that I can delve back into my Family History... I love doing that --and don't always have enough time...

Happy New Year...
Hugs,
Betsy
