baby sun

the first day of the of the new sun dawned crisply blue and icy. it feels about as absolutely wintery as a day could be. the puppies shook themselves and even buddy thought twice about diving into the monstrously high snow banks left by joe the plowman.

but as i keep telling myself, if november is the long slow slide into the dark, then january is the slow cold crawl out of it. spring can't be too far behind. i believe, i believe, i believe.

inside, the tree is decorated, the stockings are hung, the candles are positioned. even a few of the cookies got baked... and i have over 32600 words written!!!

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

Ah yes - winter right on cue! And a morning of glad and welcoming (if not frigid) sun to greet us today!

Your tree looks wonderful! And your stockings ... candles ... cookies and WORDS all warm a place in your heart, eh? And ours too!

It looks peaceful and inviting with an air of expectation. In the West, we are just now enjoying winter.
I loved your comment on my blog today, of course you're a Jersey Girl too. I'm seriously out of practice living out West and in the South for so long, ah well.

And yes...Spring, Annie! We don't have to pay the piper for too too much longer.
