We are in need of paper bags again. Seems like we go through lots of them, so if you have some sitting around that you don’t need, drop them off — we will use them.

I’m watching it snow today — big old feather flakes. So pretty to watch them float down. It always reminds me of my mother’s old saying that it’s Mother Nature shaking out her feather bed.

We had birthday cake on Friday for all the birthdays in January. Congratulations to all of you January people.
