I'm sitting in an internet coffee shop on the Oregon coast with two of my sisters. We're in a cozy corner, sitting on comfortable couches, sipping our lattes and cappucinos as we talk and check email. (My sister is letting me use her laptop to check my mail and leave this note on my blog.)
We're having some internet access problems at my mother's house, and it will be a week or so before we can address those, so I'll be away from the computer for a bit. Hopefully, I'll be back online before Christmas!
Have a beautiful, peaceful Advent season!
