Winter arrived this week and this winter lover is quite happy! I watched the snowfall from the inside of my warm and cozy home. I went out with the big camera and Frodo, but we both gave up in fifteen minutes because....well...we were cold!
Funny how last year was bitterly cold and that 20 degrees would've felt warm. This year, I'm not acclimated to the deep chill. My body was spoiled with spring like temps for too long. Barely an inch of snow fell when the storm blew through but that's okay. It's beautiful and it's snow! I'm wearing wool sweaters, wool cowls or scarves or shawls. I sift through mitts and pick a pair - this has been heavenly.
The quiet days of January continue, I love that after holiday lull. We are back to the two of us. Simple meals are planned, the Christmas cookies are almost (almost!) gone and with each sweet treat disappearing we are welcoming in fresh fruits and vegetable. Yum. I am enjoying the quiet and silence that January offers.
Are you on instagram? There will be a free course of Liberated Lines if you're interested. Alisha and Robin have fun poetry prompts that stretch creativity and the polishing of the written word. I enjoy participating and following along how other creative souls interpret the prompts.
Also, my friend Michelle is offering a course that starts in February. 28 Moments is a month long photography and writing course filled with introspective prompts and reflections. I have made many friends through her class offerings, Michelle is personable and creative and puts a lot of thought into her work. Check it out!
