Bitter temps here again. Winter has not yet gone on so long as to reduce my enthusiasm for another excuse to tuck in. Right now, these things are perfect to me: the sweetness of having my love home for winter after so long apart, thoughts of dreams and happy plans, an abundance of ideas, long but wonderful to-do lists, a busy kitchen, inspiring stories, mini road trips, the steady company of a good friend, stark landscapes, new music, the warmth of Ollie nestled in my lap as I work, the shortness of days - and a heartfelt effort to make each minute amount to something good. All together, these things swirl around like magic. My most favorite winter thus far.
A happy new week to you, dear friends. S
