second sight

It has been a week of snow, outside is a winter wonderland, very cold, and there is no end in sight. Not that I am wishing for winter to end before it has really begun, I love snow in December.

By February, I will be singing a different tune. Feel free to remind me, then, how much I loved this first week of snow. My two outdoor kittens are not quite as amused, they keep going to the door hoping to see green grass and sunshine. They go out for five minutes and come right back in. Five minutes later, they are at the door again, searching for green.

For them it will be a long winter.

Already, I feel myself going into hermit mode. I haven’t left my house since Saturday. And I have loved every minute of it. Four days alone and I am feeling calmer, more balanced. November was rough. The next two weeks will be a frenzy of getting ready for the holidays, but then for a month, I will relax, as much as possible. There will still be graphics work, I can’t not do that, but jewelry show season is a long way off, so there will be evenings in front of the fire, and lots and lots of books. And very little leaving the house.

I am so blessed. I know this.

I know it more right now than I ever have in my life.

This was a whirlwind year for me, a year of exponential growth. I couldn’t have guessed, when I started this blog, how much it would change my life. How much it would become my vehicle of appreciation. How much it would help me see.



I thought that was my tagline.

Now I know it is a way of life.


That is a really lovely photo! I know what you mean about winter in December. I too think snow is pretty in December but by February I am so miserable. This year my misery appears to have come earlier than usual. If I didn’t have to go to work I would never go out all winter.

It’s funny just how alike we are, I haven’t left the house for four days either. I know I have to venture out tomorrow to run errands and I’m not looking forward to it.

Wonderful picture! I treasure all the pictures you create through your many lenses. I can see your kittens searching for grass and you reading peacefully by the fire.

Such a stunning photo!

I can already feel myself moving into hibernation mode – I both dread and crave it

lots and lots of books…i love that! and…the beauty of the whirlwind. enjoy the fire ~

How much my heart smiles at those last four lines. It is where I have been headed for the past 3 or so years (something my own blog helped me with) but I am not quite there yet. I am so glad you are.
And that photo… I am speechless.
