A winter list.





























fuzzy socks
overcast days
piles of wood
warmth of the fire
two, then three cups of coffee
your frosty breath suspended in air
steam billowing from your tea cup
frost plus sunshine=sparkle
slowing down
snuggling under piles of quilts
a sleeping cat at your feet
lamps, lamps, and more lamps
the scent of homey candles
cold toes
layers….
gathering: wood, friends, presents, thanks
surprises
celebration
savoring
doing less but living more
starting over
bare trees
embracing the dark by adding more light
twinkly stars
movie watching
book reading
baking lessons
the anticipation of snow
the rhythm of building fires
simmering pots of soup
scarves
staying home
decorating for Christmas
Jesus talk
getting back to the basics, like friends and family
journaling
reflecting
Christmas movies
Christmas music
brightly colored birds against grey skies
birds flying in a "v"
checking the mail
saying yes
saying no
waiting
being still
playing chase and hide-and-go-seek
stockings
birthdays
togetherness
football watching
early bedtime
hibernating
writing
thinking less
enjoying more
hoping
shadows and light
finding shelter and warmth inside

This is our winter.
