Hello from cold, wet and windy Rhineland.
Streams and rivers are running high water
due to the snow and rain we have had, and the only
nice thing about being outside today was
coming home to a warm place and hot coffee!
For Joan's challenge, Christmas memories,
at Tag Tuesday I have a piece with my fave
penguins. I printed out a whole pile of these cheery

And I just caught the moon before she went
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
