winter list.

2 Dec
Walking about in my yellow coat, taking advantage of the necessity of scarves, and loving the white snow that has fallen, I think to myself, “Winter.  You’re not so terrible.”  Granted, yes.  I realize the worst is yet to come … but let’s make the most of it, shall we?  That means –
The unveiling of the winter list.  
It’s in no way final.  Adjustments are guaranteed.  But, for now, this is what I have on this second day of December as my goals for the winter season.
a. build a snowman.     b. venture to the Holidazzle lighted parade.     c. go sledding.     d. make, share, and eat hamballs – Mary O. style.     e. attend the St.Paul Winter Carnival.     f. volunteer at Feed My Starving Children.     g. create, address, and mail Christmas cards.  (Wonder if you’re on my list?  Email me your address!)     h.  try my hand at these.     i. shop for a real Christmas tree at those places with the strings of naked lightbulbs – but not actually buy one.     j. organize a quilting bee/club of sorts.  (All are welcome; maybe a bit of a ‘learn how to quilt’ organized get-together.  I’m thinking January.  Details still to be determined.)     k. visit every one of these places, hopefully with my dear friend, Sara.     l. a trip on an airplane to somewhere warm?  (In the works … )     m. roller derby?  I’ll be in the audience.     n. twirl in the falling snow, a la Winona Ryder in Edward Scissorhands
