I know some of you are wishing for spring, my husband is wishing for summer! I, on the other hand, am in my winter glory. I love everything about winter. I sleep better, knit better and enjoy the days fully. Soon enough I will be yearning for some light jacket wearing but for now I am in my element.
The above photo is my art journal spread. I try to create one a week and then journal. The journalling is private but the layout is not. I used Tombow markers to create the dark gray background then used a white pen.
Yesterday I had three inches cut off the length of my hair. It was a long time coming. I kept the length for the wedding updo. Shoulder length is the best length for my hair and I am loving the cut. The sun was out and I almost was grumpy from the squinting. I caught myself and stopped the grump. Sunshine is limited in the winter! On the way home, I drove in silence just enjoying the light playing on the hills, trees and roadside buildings.
I managed to pull out the notebook and paints this week and created a doodle. I need more of this in my life.
I am nearing the end of this shawl, the romantic hopeful thinker in me wishes this will be done over the weekend but the skeptic in me thinks that might be a little far reaching. I work on this in the evenings while watching TV.
My winter delights besides what's listed in my journalling photo: Frodo snuggles beside me - hot soup! - movie marathons - winter boots - woolen mitts, scarves, cowls, shawls, sweaters etc... - deer prints in the snow - days getting longer - brilliant sunrises.
What are your winter delights? If you yearn for summer or are IN summer then list your summer delights.
