Snowflakes and Winter


My days have been quiet and filled with peace.  I always relish the days when I haven't a worry or care in the world.  Every single day should be like that.  So I savor those non-stressed days and bank up that contentment feeling for when the storms brew in my head.


I just love these "charlie brown christmas trees" in my yard.  We have many and they always make me smile.  I imagine a very large heavy ornament pulling their tender trunks towards the earth.  While my husband and kids were snowblowing and shoveling and sledding, Frodo and I did a walkabout to document the snow fall.  He loves when I grab the camera!


Soon the end of the year will arrive and resolutions come to my mind.  I could list so many tiny goals and invent more and more.  I could be more productive, healthier, knit more (love that one) and organize this house from top to bottom.

However, I just want to be in any moment in fullness and appreciate the beauty.  I want all my moments captured in photos or words.


I wish for all of you a peaceful happy and joyful new year!!
