very merry post Christmas thoughts

early morning pre sunrise..the Christmas lights are twinkling and winking outside on our porch..the darkness still enfolds us..A peaceful day with my tiny family yesterday makes me feel calm and ready to trek down to the Big Smoke with my daughter today. our rhythms yesterday were perfect.no bickering evident ..and even some humour and cuddle time..Our gifts were simple..dinner delicious ..salmon infused with fresh local garlic..dill and lemon and a fluffy romantic comedy movie to end the day with a smile and a sigh.

I am in a calm place right now..may it linger ..

oh winter

So long dear Mills
Sam when she was a little younger ....

a new painting..

snow inc..

Yep it's here..I somehow managed to get my lights up in the nick of time and our dear snowblower is truly performing like a dream ..Stephen is quite keen to prove it's prowess and I am a little intimidated..but bound to start 'er up on my own! The job is going well.I seem to be managing 5 days of commitment without too much sense of loss..although snow day on Friday was a relief to just be home and still.

On a sad and mournful note we lost our dear calico Millie to cancer..and she was loved and will be missed deeply.
