Oh, the Weather Outside is Delightful!

Not frightful at all, like Dean Martin sings on my new Christmas CD! He says the weather is frightful and the fire delightful.... I think fire's are a delight, too, but today's not cold enough for a fire. It's just perfectly delightful!

And if that isn't enough, I also had the delight of an unscheduled day off. That makes a regular ol' day like a holiday! It's like a surprise birthday card -- like the one I got from Cheryl Dear in today's mail. I was so happy when I saw it that I just cried. A delighted cry of friendship remembered. (Do you know what I'm talking about?) Lifelong friendships are delight-a-mundo!

Dinner's been slowly roasting all day in the oven, and the smell reminds me of something Grandma would make when we were kids. A new Christmas book arrived in the mail... and a hot bubble bath awaits. I'm gonna go slip under those puffy perfumed clouds and read and savor every word that Cheryl wrote in my birthday card...

It's been an unusually wonderful day. Just as delightful as the weather!
