These have been wonderfully quiet, pondering & thinking kind of days. These winter days after the activity of the holiday season and before the days of spring.
It is a fresh new year!
Always at this time I am looking forward to spring. I know it will not be far off. But for now I will bring a little spring inside.
Primroses are out now…a sure sign for me that spring will be coming!
These are the geranium cuttings I took back in the fall and set in water to root.
They all rooted and now have been planted in soil. I am so excited about this! There have even been some blossoms! In the spring I can plant them into one of the outside window boxes. I love the frugality and satisfaction of this! This fall maybe I will do more.
Enjoying the evening with some candlelight. Bill cut me a piece of branch from a limb that came down in a windstorm and I am using it as a little base for the candle…the rustic simplicity makes me smile. Now it is all drippy with wax and adds even more charm.
I found some beeswax tarts in a favorite little shop, and you should smell them! The fresh honey smell is just delightful! They are a new favorite, and they were so inexpensive!
Reading by the fire! This is has become one of my favorite winter activities. We don’t have any small children to read to, but a couple years ago Bill and I started reading aloud to each other on winter evenings. It allows for a slowing and settling in for the evening. What a joy it is to read a good book together this way.
With this new year I hope it brings joy and fresh hope to you! It is a new opportunity for us to do His will.
Sweet blessings friends!
