A January Glow

I don't know about you, but I am all about "light". Natural light. The light that floods a room when shades are raised, and slips away when shades are drawn.

Due to my early morning schedule, our shades (most of them) stay drawn until I return home at 3:00 pm

On weekends the first thing I do when I get up is raise the shades. Light changes the feeling of the house, brings in life.

This week we had a foot of snow...then the fog came and took it all away! It was in the 50's today!

When I came home, the light was very pretty:

The Paper Whites Were Blooming...

The Doorknobs Were Sparkling...
My Dad's Shells from Guam Were Singing Ocean Songs in the Afternoon Glow....

He's At it Again!




I'm rather enjoying the fact that my 13 year old has been out in the snow again today taking photos...mom is off the hook! i must admit that I adore the back of our "garage". The front is shingled to "match" our gray shingled antique cape....the back is in all its glory....our home was built in 1830.


here is a sneak peek of what I am crafting with my coveted felt hearts....attached to burlap bags with twine...so very sweet.

Birds in the Snow...



My 13 year old took some lovely bird photos in the snow today. We received about 11 inches of snow yesterday.



"What do you mean this isn't MY big purple bunny?"

Our Daily Routine

Thought it might be neat to read about one another's daily routine...we know our likes....and yes, even our dislikes....our dreams....and our hobbies....but what about the everyday ordinary life we live from day to day?
