One of the things I like best about living in northern California is that spring really starts in early or mid February. These crocuses came up a few days ago, along with our first daffodils and grape hyacinths. I do miss winter, though.
And when spring arrives, our family’s fancy turns to… the family Christmas letter! We started our 2012 letter during the actual Christmas season, but left it unfinished in the press of other goings on. But eventually my husband’s patience gives out and he
gets in a snit points out that 2012 is long over and nothing has been done. So we held an emergency Christmas letter workshop last weekend and got the thing finished. My husband has already sent his out by email, but I really prefer to send it out the old-fashioned way, which means that mine probably won’t get out for another couple of months. And what to call it then?
