things that get you through January

- pools of lamplight in a darkened room

- turkey stock

- new slippers before the inner fuzziness gets trodden down

- sun on new snow, seen through a window, when you have already shovelled and have no place you need to be

- sweaters still warm from the dryer

- finding that last bit of Christmas baking at the back of the fridge

- landscaping sketches

- continuing the Christmas tradition of curling up with a glass of port and a short story

- mid-week matinees at the cheap seats

- ignoring the fact that you haven't blogged in months

These are more than a few of my favourite things!

I always took you for a slipper aficionado, Dale!

Allison said...

Great things. I'm with you on the slippers especially, and I went to a matinee today as well. :)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

This winter in particular, I find that slippers are no longer just for evening wear. What did you see at the matinee, Al?

sun on new snow ~ yes!

here, clouds on new rain.

Happy Friday the 13th, Barbara ~ !

After a couple of weeks of cold snap, clouds on new rain sounds pretty good to me, Erik, albeit messier. Here's to surviving another Friday the 13th. I hope you make it through Friday the 20th...

Sun on new snow. Send some here!

I'd be happy to, Danny! We have more than enough to share. How lovely to hear from you again!
