Winter Cheer!

Yes, I am still alive. 
Not blogging, but breathing 
and with a beating, grateful heart. 
I had a few minutes of solitude today, 
so I took some photos.

Back in November I was eagerly anticipating 
a local art show. I haven't been to it in a few years, 
mainly because when I go I buy something.

This year I went solo, with the sole purpose of buying something!

I'm in love with this.
I love the colors and tones and mood of this painting.
It makes me happy every time I look at it. 

The artist is Maggie Cao in case you're interested.

Having this painting helped with the post holiday blues, 
as I am always sad to see our beautiful tree go.

Here are a few snapshots on this blustery and very cold day.
My neighbor and I walked this morning. 
It was 12 degrees.

Fresh flowers help with wintertime blues, too.

We had a little bit of snow yesterday, just enough to make things pretty.

Flowers and candles and art and books.
And a cozy fire and the smell of something cooking
The noise of my girls.
All these things make a home.

I hope your holidays were merry and bright.
Happy New Year, blogger friends.
