Snuggling round the hearth,
heaps of blankets, books and kids,
Dog and kitty join us
in a circle of warmth
only a woodstove gives.

  1. Very nice to see paintings and drawings in sky watch. I liked how fun this picture is.

  2. What a sweet and beautiful image and poem, Kathie. I love woodstoves, so I can relate to this.

  3. system operator, thank you. I hope you looked below for my Skywatch post is the first one about the yellow house.

    Sandy, thank you so much for your comment. I love woodstoves also and having one was the only way I could endure the cold Maine winters. this picture and poem are happy memories for me.

  4. What cozy memories you conjure up, Kathie!

    We love the illustrator Barbara Cooney. Where do you get those neat little amazon.com rectangles?

  5. Hi joyce, so sorry this has taken me so long to respond. I got them from amazon.com. I am signed up as an affiliate. I'm trying it out but I'm not sure I like it. I'm still waiting to see if it is worth it. I don't want to appear too commercial. I love Barbara Cooney also. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I don't think it looks too commercial, since you only recommend books you love.

    Thanks for the info!
