creating my own sunshine
It’s been snowing here for days, and just now as I look out my window, the sun has managed to break through the clouds even as big, fluffy snowflakes continue to drift lazily down onto a sparkling, glittering world.
It’s like living in a snow globe that someone keeps shaking.
I am feeling wonderfully cozy but quite unproductive. Each day I set out
to accomplish this and this and this, and by late afternoon, all I want to do
is make a fire and grab my book. Of course, I first have to finish my work,
but once that is done, to other “to-do” things don’t seem to be calling my name quite as loudly as Hemingway’s writing.
I am going to have a lot to catch up on this weekend.
And though cabin fever has already begun to set in a bit, I love this time of year just for the very fact that I can sometimes push my to-do list aside.
As the year goes on and jewelry season begins, and my garden
begins to grow, that becomes less and less possible.
So for now I shall revel in these days of semi-laziness, revel in the
snow-globe sense of security, revel in the slower pace of life.
Golden moments to immerse myself in, admire, appreciate.
Moments worth much more than their weight in gold
as I sit here on the inside, looking out.
Here’s hoping you have a few of those moments
yourself this weekend…
