    I can get all of those except #12(!), which is one of the things I miss most while in Qingdao. Oh well… great list! 🙂 Have you ever read One Thousand Gifts?

      That’s too bad, snow is wonderful. Well, hopefully you don’t have the freezing temperatures that come with the snow. Thank you! I have not read it, but it’s on my list!

        I know! Originally from Indiana so we got feet of snow there. It’s mainly cold in QD during the winter because of a lack of insulation.
