Snowflakes And The Christmas Spirit

 A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky--unbidden--
and seems like a thing of wonder. ~ Susan Orlean

Monday morning ... and though it's gray and overcast, there's a cozy feeling in the air as snowflakes, soft like fluffy goose down, float from the skies. Oh the joy and the bliss of newly falling snow. It's as Andy Goldsworthy once said, snow provokes responses that reaches right back to childhood. I feel a giggle of joy on the inside. Snow and Christmas -- in my child's eye -- always go together.

My feet hit the floor running this morning. I woke up hap-happy, even though I have a pile of things to do today. For today, it's all fun, yes, even the chores, as I'm starting to feel the curling warmth of the Christmas spirit gently fall around me, as I see those snowflakes falling on in the garden outside.

Whatever you're up to, cherish your day,


  1. The snowflakes are falling here too and aren't planning on stopping for a few days. I'm just going to stay in and try to stay warm.

  2. will do, I'm tracing my husband's Indian genealogy online through census records in Texas-it's fascinating.

  3. I read your comment to Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage about her SAD. It was a blessing to me and I just wanted to say thank you for sharing that!

  4. A good place to stay, Dar!

    Lin, I can well imagine how interesting you're finding your husband's lineage. There is something satisfying to find where your roots are from.

    Robin, you fill me with joy. So glad those words blessed you too!

  5. Beautiful post. Lovely photo.

  6. It's so pretty! We got just a dusting of snow today, but my kids were so excited. Enjoy the white!
