slowly turning pages

Quiet writing time... less words in the winter. Instead, energy goes into keeping warm, well fed, and fully rested, so that these cold cold months can pass with relative ease and calm.

Lots of tea, and a fire each morning. Lunch-time baths. Early to bed with an episode of something (six feet under, extras) or a gardening magazine. The pets full of energy in spurts, but mostly sleeping. Bundling up to fill the bird feeder, run around with the dog, wipe snow off the car, bring some more wood in.

Our first winter here, lovely... but so ready for spring!!!

Nice things:
1. james brown (music, not the man)
2. brownies
3. d's family
4. breakfast with jp & m
5. chickadees
