Fruitcake Weather

That November "leafless birdless coming of winter morning" has passed, but no holiday season is complete without having read again Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory. From the happy exclamation of fruitcake weather to the final hurrying flight of kites toward heaven, this story brings out all the varying emotions of a holiday season...loved ones, dreams, memories, gifts of the season, treasures and more.

If you have never gifted yourself with a reading of this classic, please set aside some time for yourself, make a cup of your favorite heart warming beverage, and follow this link as the fireplace commences its seasonal roar.

I love this story. I blogged about it here last year.

I had not read that story before
and just did. It was a gift and
stirring. I could almost hear that
"fireplace with its seasonal roar!"
It's warmed up here in NC!

Merry Christmas! Hope you had a lovely day.
