Thank you for the kind words, Gina & Cat. Delighted my sister was able to return home if only for a brief visit. Woke this AM here at our cottage to a 'white out' ... blizzard conditions throughout the state. Too blustery even to snowshoe through the woods ... guess we'll have to curl up by the fire ...
