Warm thoughts for a cold season

Holiday warmth, 5 by 7 card,
It's too warm...late October, and 80 degrees? I yearn for deep autumn and snowfall, especially after a trip to the Rockies last week to see my son. 
I bought pinon wood today...would like to sit on the back porch with a flannel shirt on. Not today.
The only cure...paint and dream.
Here's Christmas card number 20... adobe, a pinon fire, snow-covered hills and a nighttime sky glistening with stars.
Warm thoughts for a cold season.
