Oh The Weather Outside is.....

The weather here in VA is in the 70s today. I just heard a splash in the back yard, and looked out to see the geese in our neighbor's pond, playing and splashing as though it is Spring. I love this weather, but secretly I'm hoping it cools down by Christmas, and snows.
I braved the post office today to mail a last minute pen and ink rendering to a client. It was mobbed, but the folks in line were friendly. One of the postal workers manning a window had a train whistle to calm or distract a crying child. It worked....or maybe it was his Santa Claus hat. He made it a delight to be there, even waiting in line.
I love seeing people maintain a good sense of humor and a true holiday spirit in the midst of crowds and pressure.
