  2. The dusting of Frost is so Magical... alas, don't get much here in the Desert, but when it comes on rare occasion it Transforms the Desert into a Breathtaking unusual looking Winter Wonderland! Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  10. Hi Carla, A sweet post and gorgeous pictures. What is your favorite tea this time of year? Love to you all.

  11. My favourite teas are Earl Grey and A Rose and French Vanilla tea by Dilmah. Pumpkin Soup and garlic bread - perfect winter lunches. Your list is the perfect representation of winter, though Christmas carols are on the summer list here.

  13. Yes, I really appreciate your thoughts on December. I've tried very hard to have most of my work done by December 1st so I can enjoy the Advent season. The past two years have been fairly successful, but it's required lots of planning and work in October and November! Your words are encouraging me to remember what my mind should truly be on (as I just wrote a post about fun Christmas ornaments... :/ )

    Lovely list. I enjoy these Monday posts of yours!

  14. I always love reading your joy list! I have had a very busy time lately and I'm going to enjoy slowing down soon...I hope. And I'll think of you this week when I go to the Farmer's mkt. It was closed last week so I'm excited to get my fresh fruit and veggies this week. Sweet hugs, Diane
