Very Windy Day

Today was right out of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. It was insanely windy and my little car shook on the road everywhere I drove. There were flash fires everywhere. One of the local stables supposedly had to be evacuated (More on the grass fires here: http://www.star-telegram.com/news/story/440091.html)

I was thinking today about my mom again and thinking about Ice cream. Last night I had Black Walnut Ice Cream. I seem to remember when I was a kid she loved the stuff and I thought it was really gross. I remember that the black walnut ice cream was whiter than vanilla, and since I couldn't read it was how I could tell them apart. I love black walnut ice cream now and eat it every chance I get. I don't think they keep it in stores much.

I have been wearing the sweatshirt mom gave me a bunch. The weather has been cold and it's so cute. People keep telling me how nice it looks on me.

My step-mother (my dad's wife?) also gave me some cool Christmas presents. She gave me a yellow teapot and two mugs and I use them almost every day. She also gave me a lovely, warm quilt that goes with my new couch. I'm grateful for all of it now that the weather is cold and windy.
