On A Cold Winter's Eve
Feeling even more appreciative of our warm home as an frigid air mass has settled over the region dropping our temps into the single digits (or just above) and wind chills well below zero. Our coldest temps since 2005 says the weatherman.
I don't mind honestly. (And I know few feel as I do!) I'm enjoying being present in this Winter season and don't have the desire to look ahead for Spring. I'm happy where I am.
While Hubby was out with one of the nephews, I spent a cozy day at home. I looked at one thing that needed to be done & did it instead of looking at All that needs to be done and getting overwhelmed so I purged and re-organized the kitchen cabinets this morning along with texting with two of my girlfriends.
I accepted my limitations and went to rest on the couch early this afternoon. I had hoped to do a little reading (the novel is pictured above) but I didn't get very far before falling asleep for a couple of hours. That enabled me to cook us a fabulous dinner of baked sweet & spicy bbq chicken legs (veggie & side) and corn bread for dinner. (After which I was exhausted again but it was well worth it!)
I read Lynne Griffin's first novel, Life Without Summer, in 2009 (you can find my Goodreads review here) and have looked forward to more from her since. I spotted Sea Escape a novel at the library on Friday and had to take it out so my re-read of The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd for our evening bookclub this coming Thursday is on hold for a few days!
