Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. – Ralph Waldo Emerson



made it downtown to the hair appointment. saw people out with skis, babies, guitars, coffees, dogs, eating under awnings outside, smiling, calm, and happy, and chatting, and skittering along through all of the weather. what’s more snow and freezing rain when you’ve already had 40 inches or so this month? life goes on. and now i like to imagine that my hair will look stunning as i listen to my’ extreme winter rock mix ‘on my iPod, and shovel my driveway, yet again. we are a hearty lot.

The poetry of the earth is never dead.

John Keats

  1. The poetry of the earth nor the beauty of your hair I imagine. Tis lovely you’ve achieved the outside. As I lay languid on the sofa watching Pans Labyrinth draining my phone to the very last drop. So happy your having a lovely day ,


  2. You have peaked my interest with the guitar spotting, Beth. Playing outside? Or just carrying in a case? I hope the extreme weather rock mix helped the driveway get cleared quickly. ‘Oh, we’re halfway there, oh, oh, shoveling with some flair …” (Kudos and apologies to Jon Bon Jovi, of course.)


    • sitting and playing outside while people sat under the awning, enjoying some hot food. yes, the music certainly helped the shoveling as well ) hey, jbj is practically your neighbor, so i’m sure he’d be understanding…


  3. Wow, in the midst of the snow and cold temperatures, you found a way to make it almost fun. Sitting here in Taiwan where we don’t get snow, I feel almost guilty as I sit her smiling at the woodland creatures. 🙂


  4. Love your happy outlook, I don’t have to deal with snow but I can imagine those who do are pretty much fed up with it, you’ve been able to embrace it, love that! I’ll bet your hair does look stunning, enjoy your winter mix!! 🙂


  5. Fun post with the best imagery in your simple but detailed day! I hope that you got to feel pampered and relaxed, along with energized by all the people out and about! This illustration and quote were really apropos! Too bad you had to shovel! You should let us in on your extreme winter rock tunes! Hugs, Robin


  6. Making life jolly is always so much fun Beth
