A New Day

A foggy new day.

Bright with promise. 

One hopes that behind the hoar-frost inducing cloud there lies a clear, bright, blue sky.

One opens the window just a crack to listen for a cheerful chickadee and to test the outside temperature.

The evergreens are heavy with yesterday's snow, drooping under the weight of yet another sudden round of flurries. 

And inside, all is quiet.

Beyond the humming of refrigerator fans, nothing stirs.

Children still nestled all snug in their beds. Solitary coffee being sipped beside the flickering gas fire.

A new day.

A clean slate.

Magical, peaceful moments.

  2. ! Oh, look! One of the myriad "anonymous" comments snuck through! They've been making me chuckle for several weeks now. How about this one:

    "Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just could do with some p.c. to drive the message home bit, however other than that, that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back. Also visit my blog::cheap cigarettes"

    Or the one right after it:

    "A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you need to write to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don't speak about these subjects. To the next! Best Wishes!! Feel free to surf my web blog...drum tobacco"

    Such fun!
