Gale warnings up. Wave height over 12 feet. Rough and stormy seas today.

Today is the Famous Anonymous kid's birthday. We call her "Sissy" now because that is what her baby sister has now decided to call her. Her interpretation of "sister". So gone is her real name for a while anyway. Sissy seems to have taken root.
So tonight she will get to run amok in bookstores and select her new stash. She is a voracious reader. Her teacher encourages them to read on their own a lot and she has really taken to doing that. I don't remember being encouraged to read in elementary school much.
After the book stores we will get some dinner.
It is storming out today and as windy as can be. In spite of the bare trees and cold days we have had, some of my miniature roses around the small pond are still blooming.
Lovely to see.

It is a hot tea kind of day.I hope your Wednesday is less wild than ours is here.
Tomorrow is the first night of Chanukah.
