Re: good morning/weather

Pam: The forced indoor time is when we learn to love doing other things
as well. For me, it's time to quilt, work on crafts, and read...those
are my major winter activities. The quilting is a very satisfying way to
create something beautiful and for me is very much like gardening in
that way. By the time winter is over, I'm ready to move on though and
get back outside. Guess you really do adjust to whatever circumstances
you live in, huh?

me. I<br>can't stay cooped up in the house for weeks at a
