The last of the Christmas decorations came down yesterday, New Year's day.
And now I am pretty much settling in for winter.
Snow, snowy roads, snow storms, road and school closures. This is our winter here in the snowy North.
This picture below is a shoot from my kitchen window. I will stay nice and warm in the house for this pic!
You can't see them well, but snow flakes are tumbling down. Kinda pretty actually.
I am thinking later today or tomorrow heading over to the library to get some books.
Or maybe Goodwill, they always have decent books at decent prices.
I might even bundle up and walk down to the library.
Don my parka, wrap my nice cozy scarf around my neck.
Wear my pretty little winter hat I love so much, slip into my safe and solid boots.
Show off the mittens Mom knitted me years ago. Now I am all set for the long walk.
If anything, I'll be styling as I walk downtown to the library!
Usually every winter I buy a bunch of books from the used book store, but this year I did not get around to it.
I think I will try to save a few bucks and just rent them.
Next week daughter Rachel returns back to school after her Christmas break.
The house will definitely feel empty.
My son is home, for now, and is enjoying his gap year.
He talks of apply for school for September....already. I know it will be here before I know it.
He works part-time and is always out and about with his buddies.
I like this new house we moved into last month.
It is comfortable. Quiet.
Like my Mother always use to say....I can hear myself think.
I will be linking up with these parties
