This morning, it was -8 degrees. Fahrenheit. And that, readers, is pretty darned cold. The snow squeaks underfoot, and Liam’s trips to the backyard are mercifully quick. On the calendar, the first day of winter is marked on December 21, but I think it’s safe to write that winter has come early to Maine, as it always does.
Here is what one of the windows looked like when I raised the shades. Most of that frost is on the inside of the window. Dr. Zhivago, anyone?
Nothing warms up this cold season the way gifts do, and yesterday I received three from my friend Shari, whose creativity never fails to dazzle me.
Blue is my favorite color, and I love all shades, but lately, for some strange reason, Maya blue has become my special favorite. And, the piece with the driftwood, pottery, and sea glass is none other than Maya blue, which is now an official color. At least according to me 😉
Thanks so much, Shari. I have found special places to hang the Maya-blue piece with the driftwood. I’ve also found a place for the shell. As for the wee card…we are going to frame that and put it on our bookshelf.
Ho-ho-ho and crunch, crunch, crunch. Christmas gets ever closer, and soon my best beloveds will be wending their way north.
Fingers crossed for good weather next Thursday and Friday.
