I guess a long winter can be good for many things. When the weather is harsh, the wind is stinging, and roads are icy there are so many activities you can get caught up on.
There’s knitting or crocheting a blanket. Making your way through your To Be Read pile. Shampooing your carpets. Sorting through your closets. And, of course, shoveling all that fluffy snow!
Oh, and there’s building snowmen or snowwomen or snowbears!
You can settle in for some serious movie watching–the classics or new releases. Your pick. How about making those fabulous recipes you’ve clipped from magazines or newspapers and stored in your recipe file just knowing you’d eventually make them and wow the family with your gourmet finesse?
Of course, there’s also cuddle time on the sofa with the love of your life. There’re lazy naps on winter-gray weekend afternoons. And there’s making a pot of your favorite soup and enjoying it with a freshly baked loaf of bread. A kettle of tea. A mug of hot cocoa.
Or, you could be like two of my nieces and participate in an activity that will bless our family with two beautiful wee ones just in time for Thanksgiving!! Two of my little sister’s girls will give her grandbabies this November! Who said nothing good comes from 14 inches of snow?
From now until Thanksgiving, I expect that I will be busy shopping!
Until next time, may the flowers that bloom in your garden color your life with joy!
At long last, below is a picture of my Paint & Praise painting. It’s called The Spirit Tree, and I so enjoyed painting it!
