Slow, Cold Sunday



It's a slow, cold Sunday at the farmette.  Just the way I like it.  The joy of having older children is that they are on their own, on days like this.  Either with friends, or doing their own thing, it has freed me up in life for my own pursuits.  

Sometimes it means an afternoon of nothing, but I enjoy the moments of nothing-ness.  They don't come very often around here.  

The photo shows one of our pear trees resting during this winter season.  Taken a few days before we had snow on the ground, I know it is already contemplating spring.  

Linking up with The Barn Collective today.

  1. Well, enjoy it while you can. Having older children is good, but they often have children which is great. Then slow, cold Sundays have a way of becoming fast paced and loud, real loud Sundays! Looking out my window today, a pear breaking bud looks a long way off. Thanks for your visit, rest up and stop back again.

  2. No snow? I thought you guys might have got a little bit though it seems like the further south the more it snowed.

  11. The hope of spring is all around us even in the deep of winter. I keep my eye on the dogwood seed pods for encouragement.

  13. Yes, time alone is such a gift. Little bit of snow here, not enough for snow ice cream but it's staying around to be pretty.

    It appears to be very cold all over the place.

  21. I know exactly what you mean Michelle, regaining time to yourself after bringing up children is quite liberating ☺ Enjoy, as you say those quiet times don't come along too often.
