Happy Mid January!
We have had quite the juxtaposing weekend! Yesterday was the most mild Mid-January day of recent memory and today is well below 0 and snowing lightly. I am so happy today! This weekend has been lovely, with the starlings and crows at our door. I feel rejuvenated to create and just be one with the earth! Painting, knitting and ultimately my favourite, being outside with the trees and light snow flakes. In all the quietness and ultimately achieving nothing that our society places importance on – I feel the happiest and most fulfilled. A full fridge, a fire in the stove, snow flakes dancing out my window and a very tired dog from a long hike. Warm socks, a patient book and unlimited amounts of tea with the possibility of a cat cuddle <3<3<3
And for this evening, Jamie and I will have a nice dinner to celebrate our 8 years together, sit by the fire and I will more than likely start another little knit for the shop and will finish The Good People by Hannah Kent. We started to watch Tales from the Green Valley AGAIN (about once a season we watch this series). It is one of my most soothing and therapeutic shows – I love it! All I need is to hear the opening music and I feel whisked to a very safe place. Jamie and I have developed stories between the historians and archaeologists – for instance, we are certain something happened between Alex and Chloe… but anyway, for another time and place !!
I wonder if you can feel the peace I feel this weekend through the photographs? I forgot to mention that Jamie gifted me with a new camera for Christmas and I am so incredibly excited about the pictures that I have been taking. I do have A LOT to learn because though I have always enjoyed taking pictures – I have never done more than point and shoot. There is a bit more too this one and I am in a wee bit over my head at the moment. All in good time, right?
Love & Light for the last half of January! I am already looking at seed catalogues as the light ascends!
