Winter is here. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season has faded with only the memories remaining (and a few decorations still left to be put away). This time of the year is a quiet time for me….a time to reflect, to plan, to snuggle in for some catching up on books, magazines, and TV shows that have been placed aside during the busyness of Christmas-time.
A hot cup of tea on a winter afternoon when my fingers begin to numb from the chill of a cold winter’s day satisfies my soul. The warm cup feels good to wrap my hands around feeling the heat, relieving the chill.
We have had no measurable snow yet this winter (if you read my blog you have heard me complain about this on SEVERAL occasions) and I yearn to grab my camera and head out down a country road to capture the beauty of snow, but for right now I have to be satisfied with the other beauty of winter, the dried leaves, and the remains of summer flowers….their lovely textures stand out in the starkness of a winter’s day.
Many times as the sun sets and the darkness has settled around us by 5:00 PM I decide that a hot bath and some warm winter PJ’s is the answer to a relaxing winter’s evening at home.
