I know all I have to do is get dressed, walk across the yard and I am at work.
The weather has other plans for us all this year. I think the weather is telling us all to slow down, take a break, look around, pay some attention to me.
There are many things in life that humans can not control and this is one of them.
For yesterday's snow day I baked bread. One loaf for us and one loaf for a friend who is going to trade me for some real cheese. Not the stuff that passes for cheese in the grocery store, but real, made on a farm, cheese.
I think I am getting the better deal and so does she. Win!
Yesterday was a perfect excuse to plug away on last year's taxes. Paper work day! I usually hate to give up a day to the paper, but when it is this cold I'll take it.
The only problem I have is we have a deadline to meet and everyday away from the studio puts me a day behind.
If left to me we would all take January off. We would sit and read books, drink tea or coffee, unplug and dream. We would hibernate like bears.
Then we would come out and be hungry for life.
We would shake off the cobwebs and work like demons for the rest of the year.
Mark did come and get me from my basement cave to walk up and get the mail.
Dismal, bleak, and yet, charming a moment in life.
I think for me that I could roll some tiles and call it a day.
Keep the home fire burning.
