Lots of This…

Wishing you all lots of this today…

Well… not just today, but every day! 💕

I found my little stash of pressed flowers that I had packed away in an old box and thought I’d play around a bit arranging some flowery flat lays.  Some of these flowers are from gardens I had way back in the early 90’s!

I’d like to experiment doing more of this type of thing and maybe even try creating some mandalas using these old pressed flowers.  It’s snowing yet again today (huge, pretty flakes!), so finding creative indoor activities is always good. 😉

Thanks for letting me share, have a beautiful day, and Happy Valentine’s Day!  💘

It Has Begun

Seasons come and seasons go and the earth keeps spinning ’round 

frigid air moves in and autumn leaves turn to frosted trees upon my window pane

it has begun…

my winter morning rendezvous’ with Jack Frost

I don’t feel like I’m done with autumn yet, but I always want it to last longer than it does, so that’s typical.  😉

We had our first real snowfall overnight Thursday night, and I hadn’t realized any was coming, so it was a bit of a surprise to wake up to.  I haven’t even raked up the leaves in my yard yet.  Oops!  But hey, I’ve been otherwise occupied – my new little Grandson is one week old today.  💙

We didn’t get a whole lot of snow,  but I spent about an hour and a half shoveling yesterday morning.  It was hard on my back, but I was feeling so grateful for my new knees!  The cold air was invigorating and the snow made me feel all sorts of festive for the holidays coming up.

Anyways, I was delighted to find some pretty frost on my window as I watched the sun come up this morning, and I look forward to seeing more of it.  I know, I know…  most people dread winter, but there truly is so much beauty to be found if we look for it.  And it’s just so dang cozy!

Wishing you beauty and warmth today wherever you are…

Autumn Equinox

 

First day

We’re just getting our first taste of autumn color here in Minnesota on this first day of fall.  It’s typically well under way by this date on the calendar, but it’s late this year, probably due to the unusually warm temperatures we’re having.  Hopefully that means fall will last longer than usual too.  I love all things autumn!  😍

 

May your day be filled with all that you love.  Happy 1st day of fall!  🍁

Silent Sunday

 

My soul listens to the silence of snow falling

 

Frosty flakes descend from the heavens

floating gracefully to the earth

poetry in motion

covering all of nature in a fresh blanket of pure white

saying

hush now, be still, rest

 

My soul listens to the silence of snow falling

Sorry, I have no photo to share with this one today, just my words as I sip my coffee, watching (and listening to) the silent snow falling outside my window this Sunday morning…

Morning Storms

 

Dawn’s light obscured

dark clouds roll in

 

as lightening flashes

thunder roars

 

heightening the senses

in awe and anticipation

 

the wind picks up

heavy drops begin to fall

 

forcing me to seek shelter

resisting the urge

 

to dance with the rest of nature

in this morning’s storms

The air was so thick and heavy when I went out to my garden this morning, I knew something was about to break in the atmosphere.  It’s been hot, hot, hot, and humid here this past week, and a good thunderstorm is such a sweet release.

Stay dry my friends.  Or wet, whichever you prefer.  😉

 

To sweet releases…

Sometimes Rain

 

Sometimes rain

 

Falls from the sky

and from my eyes

when heavy clouds lay low.

 

Sometimes rain

 

Pours down big drops

weighs down my thoughts

my petals bending so.

 

Sometimes rain

 

Goes on for days

the storms they rage

 and howling winds do blow.

 

Sometimes rain

 

Brings peace in grief

in the belief

that from it we will grow.

And sometimes rain

looks pretty on our petals.
