The sun is setting at 4:45
It will be a long time before I can pick these blooms again from the bush out front. It is merely a stick now.
The visiting ducks have flown to warmer places,
as we settle in for our long winter's nap.
I'm dreaming of playing in the sand, of warmer days, of strolling along the beach not fighting the wind
Of summer sunsets
As I pass the winter painting and crafting, working, and hibernating.
I'll take the white caps of waves over snow any day.
I prefer my winter would come and go with hardly a nod
Cabin fever strikes me quickly, the minute the cold sets in, I want to run off to Florida.
Yes.. I've never heard anyone say " Darn the winter just wasn't harsh enough for me!"
I often come in from the cold chill and say"This weather is for the aliens"and my kids laugh at that.
So I pass the time working, and keeping warm, and fixing things and updating.
That's the upside, more time indoors, more things get done.
It gives me time to finish up the room I've been putting off. The guest room.
I normally get things done much quicker, this one is taking way too long. Started in September!
For me necessity is the mother of invention.
This room... I haven't felt that necessary. But I'm on it now.
I promised myself January is the month to complete it.
A peak at the chippy Urn I will be using in my new office/ guest room which I promise to post.
I love this urn. Nifty thrifty yard sale find.
I've been painting and primping lots of furniture and walls. Feathering the nest for winter.
When I cleaned up all the Christmas mess, I just couldn't put these away....
I think i will leave my little bottle brush trees in the cream cheese crate for the duration of winter.
I like how they look.
As I wait for the summer sun once again.
I do love the Seashore, and taking pictures of it.
