and time for
1. Woodsy walks:
I have noticed something …
My April-Early Nov photo folders are chock-full of pictures and then my collection begins to dwindle
What do you take pictures of in the winter – especially before the snow falls and covers everything in soft white?
I shall have to learn to look for what I call spare beauty, like this swirly stalk that I noticed on a walk through the woods:
and the tiny bright splashes of colour that are too easily overlooked in other seasons
2. Pinecones for burning – we gather them from an gnarly old pine tree in our yard. They are beautiful to see and are also great fire starters.
3. Christmas music ~ every evening, after the supper dishes are cleared away, I spend an hour or so playing Christmas songs from this book: 100 Great Christmas Songs – fun and relaxing.
4. Indoor hobby time – I’m making progress on my very first knitted scarf – it has a dropped stitch or two but that doesn’t bother me much. It has been a great practice project for me, it’s soft and warm, matches my winter coat and I’ll be glad to wear it.
5. Candle season – It’s getting dark around 5:00 pm now and I love the excuse to light the candles and oil lamp. The glow from candle and lamplight is so soft and inviting. Perhaps not so good for reading but fine for knitting and chatting by the fireside. And especially nice for mealtime.
