It is hot and humid in Houston. After writing this the plan is to beat a retreat to our bedroom and take advantage of air conditioning and a fan. It's that kind of day, when thinking about winter has great appeal.
One of my friends has a birthday in December. I think it's fun to give theme presents, so this is what I've come up with for her:
A new linen tea towel featuring the Beefeater Guards;
a mug from Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee, along with a book,
and came up with this. The book is "England for All Seasons" by Susan Allen Toth. I especially like the tin it will go into, a jolly red bus full of riders.
Do you keep your eyes alert for ideas all through the year, or keep a stash of goodies picked up along the way?
Have a good one,
