Another freezing day, another day of running outside and running right back inside after the picture. Seriously, I am going to pack my things and head to Florida. I know its cold there too now, but not as cold as here. I just need a battery operated electric blanket to lug around with me, I can drape it over me like a ghostly sheet and walk around all warm underneath. Of course, none of this has nothing to do with today’s prompt so I am going to go find a heating vent, and sit in front of it. Stay warm ❤
I am not a fan of grit, but I think I have found a place for it to be acceptable to me. I think wood was meant to be imperfect, flaws exposed. We can sand it, stain it, paint it, but we can never rid it of its grain. It’s a measure of growth. This doesn’t look very secure, but it’s held up over numerous hurricanes, snow storms, three dogs and a rambunctious teen. Wood is used to build houses, tree forts, bridges, fences and gates and today I feel like it’s under-appreciated. How interesting things are when you actually take notice of an everyday thing and really look at it.
I took this on my way home from work yesterday. I quick trip up to the park for some “Fresh Air”. And when I say quick, it was long enough to snap this photo and sprint back to the warmth of my car. I am just not made for this weather.
I must buy an umbrella every time I’m out and it rains, however, when I am at home and I need an umbrella to go out, there is not one to be found anywhere. It’s like the missing sock, it just disappears. And on a sunny day, I’ll find it again. So since I can’t find one, here is a substitute. I love to curl up with a good book. It’s what I have been doing with myself lately since it has been to cold to venture outside. This is just one of the many books I own, and when we start our house renovations in the Spring, I hope to transform a tiny nook in my bedroom or basement, into a reading area. I am kinda excited 🙂
PS – This book is rather good as well.
I know, a bit half hearted…
I had written this whole rant about something that happened to me this week, but I decided to erase it. I have instead decided to handle my issues with grace and not air them out on the world wide web…for now. Hoping tomorrow is a better day.
