Falling rain with a soft patter as I fell asleep

magically turned to falling snow and frozen

silence today.  My artist’s eye invited me to

take photos of snow-covered branches as


we drove north for car repairs.  The branches

look so delicate and clean with a hint of snow.

Such a delight to relish this silence and beauty.

The four seasons where we live never cease


to amaze.  Others rave about the wonders of

warmer climates. Never a fan of humidity, I

will tolerate the Colorado sun or the deserts

in the Southwest where many days have


air temperatures above 100° but with low

humidity.  We are content with where we are. 

The winter months have several family birthdays

so, we quietly are at the ready.  Tradition


of long-distance phone calls replete with

lovely renditions of Happy Birthday complete

the celebration.  Nothing matches family

sharing in the joy of the occasion.  Our


smallest family addition is oblivious to

it all.  Isabella’s wants are few:  mother’s milk,

clean diaper and wrapped up for a round

in the swing or a nap in her bassinet.  Love.

    Isabella is so sweet! She looks so contented but why wouldn’t she be, surrounded by so much love. Did you knit the little pink sweater?

    Bless, Isabella Rose is a gem and already growing a little! Such lovely photos of her and wow, I love the snowfall pictures. That is a proper winter and I totally agree – I would much rather have that than the grey and rain that persists for most of England during these winter months. big sigh.

    • Annika, thank you so much for the lovely comment. Yes, Isabella Rose is growing very well. I knew you would love and appreciate the winter photos. It is snowing as I write. As a student in Heidelberg, I recall an entire month of fog and gray skies. Give me my four seasons any day. I hear your sigh all the way across the big pond separating us. Be well. Any new projects these days? Enjoy the weekend. oxox
