  2. hmmm…
    *lots and lots {and lots} of snow falling (makes me giddy!)
    *making rum balls, sugar cookies (and feeling relaxed about getting the other ‘essentials’ done) as well as a loaf of bread (there’s not much that fresh from the oven won’t cure, no?)
    *making felted wool acorn caps (the cutest darn things ever)
    *writing and posting cards and gifts
    *bumping into an ig stranger/friend on the street of my new town, and a spontaneous ‘aren’t you…?’
    *meeting and chatting with neighbours as we shovel for the second and third time of the day
    *night walk-abouts with our old pup through knee deep snow, taking in all the twinkly snow-covered lights, watching others x-country ski down unplowed roads (magic)
    *breakfast for dinner twice (yes indeed!)
    *recognizing a building anticipation for family and Christmas to arrive and an equal measure of contentment with the peace and quiet of here and now…not wishing any time away (and it’s a lovely feeling)
    *noting the overlaps between your week and mine…and loving that bit of synchronicity. xo

  3. Noticing my Moments

    ::Sharing dinner with some friends in our recycled mini-patio…
    ::Sweet moments with our pets: dog, turtle, old canaries that we inherited…
    ::The doctors telling us that my husband´s arm is getting better after the accident with the kite (which took place this week, too)…
    ::A new haircut…
    ::My moments of meditation and running which helped me, specially in this “not so typical week” (with husband at home and with a terrible mood)…
    ::Watching the moon…
    ::Taking photos, which, for me, connects myself to the present moment and makes me appreciate the world around and the simple things which settle and ground me…
    ::Thanking you for this invitation!!!
