Thankful Thursday



Thankful today for a snow day this week.  Maybe we should call it an icy road kind of day, but a day off, none the less.  

Lunch with the daughter, chili cooking on the stove, puttering around the house, etc.....

It's these kind of quiet days that fuel me for the rest of the year.

Linking up with Teresa today....

  2. I love the light in your shot. I just posted on my blog how quiet life has been recently in terms of venturing out. But in that stillness new desires are born.

  17. I want to capture a shot just like this! There's something so commanding and yet gentle in viewing it. You've brought magic to an otherwise simple fence!
