When It Snowed…

Last Wednesday, a big winter snowstorm was predicted by the weathermen.  Appointments were canceled & businesses closed in preparation.  I could bemoan the change in conditions that compelled me to stay home… or…

I can be thankful for…

  • the opportunity to stay in my pajamas, while enjoying a leisurely cup of coffee in bed.
  • the chance to daydream as I savor the beauty of snow gently coating the brown earth & bare tree branches.
  • the smell of homemade soup simmering in a crock pot while a double chocolate cake bakes in my oven.
  • time to write in my journal, tucked under a fuzzy blanket.
  • the inks, handmade papers, & paints that were beckoning me to play in my art studio.  (Here’s the result.)

Most of all, I’m grateful for a day to be still & savor the quiet moments that snowfall brings.

    • Bemoan winter’s passing? Not me! I’ll be grateful for the darkness & the cold that kept me indoors, painting, reading, & doing all else I love doing in the winter but come spring… I look forward to opening the windows so fresh breezes cleanse my house, buttery daffodils dancing on their stems, & mourning doves building nests in my pear tree. Too much to celebrate to mourn what’s past. Hope you find much to love about each season.

      • We just received another three inches of fresh, lovely snow! Snow it doesn’t appear as though I will be “bemoaning” winter’s passing just yet!
