SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY 79 and TIDDLYINKS...It is the most wonderful time of the year!

Good morning, and Sweet Sketch Wednesday from Arizona..... Winter hasn't quit caught up with us here in the high desert. I didn't even need a jacket today. But, a week ago we were freezing to death. That is probably why I have been sick twice this past month. Our weather here isn't like it is in Phoenix. We actually have four seasons. Some winters are harder than others. But, for the most part, we don't get alot of snow. However, I have been here when we had over a foot of snow. I certainly hope we will get some this year.

Ok, Let's not wait a moment longer......
Well, just one moment.......I have a little something to share with you.
It was just Arlana's Birthday!!! So, everyone wish her a great big birthday wish!!!
Happy Birthday, Arlana!!!!
