When the first snowfall comes,
and the ice is like glass,
you hardly can get the right moment to look outside.
Sometimes when you do,
you can see, why, Santa Claus gliding wonderfully, gracefully, through the sky.
~ a poem by Isaac
How beautiful it was to see snow this morning. I was beginning to wonder if it would ever really snow, now that Christmas is almost upon us. It sure put me in the MOOD.
He took me to pick up my monthly Azure delivery. Love being able to pay less than I would at the health food store for a myriad of "natural, organic, earth-friendly foods and products"- all for no membership fee and no contract or obligation to order every month. I, along with about 10 other families meet at a drop off point about ten minutes away from my house the second Tuesday of every month. I've loved being able to build up my food supply this way.
To give you more of an idea, today's order among other things included a 50 lb. bag of thickly cut oats ($25 is a good deal) which will last us a good, long time, 10 lbs. of brown rice spaghetti noodles, 2 lbs. of coconut milk powder (planning on making a hot cocoa mix for the non-dairy people).
And you couldn't find nicer folks than Darrell (Santa) and his sweet daughter Caroline who deliver the goods with a smile every month.
It was a nice, cozy morning to spend time in the kitchen baking. The granola jar is empty and needed filling.
Needed to make something to fill the tin for tonight's secret surprise drop off. Almond Linzertorte Thumbprint cookies sounded good.
