Winter Dreaming

Well, I’m not a fan of struggling over the ice when the lane to my house turns into a luge run.  I don’t like driving in the snow.  The older I get, the more sensitive to cold I seem to be.  But…….there are the winter gifts to love.

 

Big bowls of lentil soup.

 

Glowing fires to settle by.

 

Icy ponds and rivers.

 

The artistry of bare branches.

 

The molten wintry skies at dawn.

 

The extra efforts put forth in the quest for treats.

 

The special visitors.

 

Even the watchful eyes of the bold predators.

 

The great, windswept skies.

 

The quiet moments to create.

 

I’m happy with these slow months of winter sanctuary when the earth becomes a little quieter.

  1. Such gorgeous photos Carol – and a wonderful reminder of the joys of winter. I’m a total soup fan and love having a big pot going. Stay warm and keep those creative juices flowing.

  2. Beautiful blog. I like the variety, and I can relate and sympathize with the loss of your dog Emma. I have had three amazing shelties who have passed. One of them was black and white like your Emma.

  4. Yes, winter is a time to “cosey-up” and dream, to appreciate the wonder of nature in all it’s forms, to recoup, and restore yourself. And to catch-up on the mundain things, the “have to’s”. I require a lot of light to be happy in these cold periods of life …..so a walk in the woods, snow, neighborhood, or a nap in the sun with my favorite nap partner ( my dog Lily) are my “go-to’s” in winter. Beautiful, Carol!
