JEWELRY

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…

    Oh, how I can relate to this post…after reading your words I feel like I can be a little gentler with myself, allow myself to be rather than feeling the pressure to do.

    Thank you for your quiet, soothing words…so healing for me this morning.

    I stopped fighting myself the last couple of days and finally decided to listen to my body which was telling me I needed some down time. I slept for 10 hours last night and feel a whole lot better as a result. As for the to-do-list . . . . well it will still be there tomorrow. :0)

    This sounds so close to a snapshot of my life – dreaming of sun, accomplishing little on my to do list and spending more time than usual reading…which sound pretty good when I write it out.

    I’ve gotta say – I’ve been loving the endless snow of this past week. It just keeps coming..and it’s beautiful..and it’s forcing me indoors..and encouraging the most delicious laziness. Enjoy it. As you say – spring will come!

    I love the security of the snow globe…

    oh, it does my heart good to know i am not the only one allowing myself to meander through these days of being in a snow globe (love your words!) … i actually woke this morning with a bit of a jolt and went “oh wow, and what have i actually done the last five days?” … eep! oh well, best put on the kettle … : )
    as marcie says “delicious laziness” ~ i think that is the forecast for today … yum!
    warm hugs to you, kelly ~
