Baby, it's REALLY cold outside in Colorado. We had a fire in the fireplace yesterday as we watched the Bronco football game (sad loss) and it was extra-deliciously cozy!
Since I do pretty much all of my shopping at the grocery store, I'm glad I occasionally find cute stuff like this! Owls are happy, don't you think?
Shirley-Girl the bread maker is producing beautiful bread!
The vitamin C is so beautiful. Look at the Cuties shine!
Remember the sleep over I told you we were having? We went to the bakery for dinner and then to the library. After that it was time to watch a fairy movie and then bed. In the morning, we nested on the sofa.
Today we saw our Ft. Collins grands. Can you believe Atticus is almost one year old? Look at his shiny eyes!
His daddy turned thirty-two. We have been parents for thirty-two years! Did I tell you that Brad is learning to play the bagpipes? He's a good Scotsman.
Brad and April sent me this pop-up book for Christmas. It is so pretty.
Now, about the cards . . .
There are no rules when it comes to the 4 by 6 inch notecards. I just write on them as inspiration and consideration comes to me.
The temporary "holding pen" is the monthly brown envelope.
At the end of the month I shall sort the cards and put them into the boxes. This way, I can reflect on how many cards are in each and consider where I am "at" and then progress from there. So you see, I am simply writing and drawing more, thinking and praying more, and using a smaller surface to scribble in my normal fashion.
THIS is a good book. I know that I am fairly corrupted when it comes to ignoring internal cues and defaulting to external cues. In an even bigger way, I want to tend my interior life and guard my heart from taxing exterior forces. I think this book hits the nail on the head (sorry for the cliche). Enough said. I don't usually review books, I just show their pictures. Smile.
Well, take care of your good selves, Winter People.
Keep your toes toasty and your neck warm. To my dear friends below the equator, wear those flip flops with high joy!
