Sunday Afternoon

40 degrees above zero

which means 60 degrees warmer

than the Polar Vortex last week

I checked the National Weather Service, and learned that we have a “dense fog advisory.” We enjoyed Sunday dinner at our kitchen table.

Hope all is well where you are. Take good care, as always.

Today will be a big mail day. Mail could only be delivered one day this week, which we surely understand. The acrostic is from my archives.

so very cold – take good care

So very cold, and I read today at the National Weather Service.

This is very severe weather, with “dangerous wind chills.”

I typed “weather” as a Google search, and it is 22 degrees below zero here now. The back yard thermometer tells me too, as the sun rises.

Our house began as a cottage in the 1940s. Many people have added their work over decades. Karl has worked hard to integrate the chapters of the house, with help from local businesses, and we are warm and comfortable.

And I am grateful for all who offer their gifts and work to all. Here I am, enjoying our blogs, with the internet. Hard to believe that it all works this well. Grateful.

Take good care always!

we share the weather

we share the weather
and the seasons

no small things
to share

comfort of one season
following another

the cold will not last
and there will be Spring

today though
patience and great care

The furnace is working well, and the pipes are not frozen. Heat, water, shelter. Karl worked ahead with the grocery list. No plans at all to leave the house. Blessings where you are – take good care.

Winter Window

I remembered this poem today.

window partly
covered with snow 
brings to mind
words ancient and true 

For now we see
through a glass darkly;

but then face to face:

now I know in part;
but then shall I know

even as also
I am known.

1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)

Poems and Photos

cold continues
yet warmth
on the way
in the distance
some sky
the color of
robins’ eggs
