"Walking in a winter wonderland..."
We need a costal Southern California version of Winter Wonderland. I went walking in my neighborhood and noticed all of the houses decorated with holiday ornaments and lights. The palm trees and giant bird of paradise plants were gently moving with the warmish breeze. There were people out bike riding and running with their shorts and tank tops on. In the distance, I could see sail boats on the bay. The song Winter Wonderland popped into my head, but it didn't quite fit.
"In the meadow we can build a snowman..."
When my son was in the first grade, one of the homework assignments was to make a snowman out of something other than snow, since we very rarely ever get snow here. We made a snowman out of gym socks stuffed with batting and used buttons, ribbons, raffia and what ever else we could recycle to make our sock snowman.
"Later on, we'll conspire, as we dream by the fire to face unafraid, the plans that we've made walking in a winter wonderland."
OK, I'm going with a bonfire at the beach.
