~Tis a Season of Slowing Down~

Today it is snowing here in the Pacific Northwest - so much that I am relieved.  No reason to drive anywhere, no reason to expend any unnecessary energy, and certainly a day to be wearing my slippers all day long.  Dinner is in the crock pot, I have a fire to keep warm, and all is quiet out on the street that runs along the front of our home.  The snow is coming in sideways, piling high against the windows, and all is sacred.  However, because all is cozy within, I am blessed to spend my entire day in my sewing room.  I have my cup of herbal lemon tea, the wind is raging outside, and my Bernina is a humming.  Life is good.  Life has indeed slowed down.

Create your own sort of slowness this day and be glad in it!

I LOVE days like that, but it's been a long, long time since we've had one similar here in Utah.

Finally got some snow here in Southern Idaho:) The kids loved it, me.....not so much. I am just happy for the water so I can actually water my lawn this summer!!
I am glad you have been enjoying the peacefulness of it all by the fire. Hope it was a great dinner. Happy to hear from you again. -Steph-

So glad to see you back again. How I missed reading about things over at the Lindsay household.
