for today

for today...

outside my window... 13F-7F, snow showers
i am thinking... my 'One Little Word' for 2018 will be
grounded [definition: sincere, practical, realistic]
i am thankful for... my woodstove
i am wearing... blue jeans, sweater/cardigan, bearpaw booties
i am going... outside to fill the bird feeders and replace the suet cakes,
carry in firewood, and that's it, until this frigid weather pattern breaks
i am currently reading... "The Farmer's Almanac"
i am hoping... that the snowplow doesn't crash into my new mailbox
on my mind... gas @ $2.85/gallon, milk @ $2.15/gallon, sugar @ $1.99/4 lb
pondering these words... "Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is a time for home."
~ Edith Sitwell ~
from the kitchen... roast pork & sauerkraut dinner tonight, for Good Luck!
around the house... basil, cilantro & parsley seedlings on the sunporch
one of my favorite things... PBS, especially, Masterpiece Theatre/Mystery
and The Great British Baking Show
i'm creating... a Winter fb timeline cover & blog header
a few plans for the week...  firewood delivery; grocery shopping this weekend
from my lens:
bird feeder hanging from my apple tree
just waiting to be refilled
