Where does the time go I sometimes wonder?! I've been so busy with work that I haven't had a chance to reply to comments, send emails, or even snap a picture in the last 4 days!
I broke the no picture streak this afternoon when I took a few photos from my back yard. What you can't see in the picture is that is was, and still is spitting snow. I doubt it will amount to much, the lion's share is expected to stay pretty far south of us, but seeing big fluffy snowflakes was fun none the less.
The older I get the more I find a certain sense of beauty in the stillness and lack of color that the winter has to offer. Though I can't imagine I will ever give up spring and summer as my favorite seasons, in winter it seems as if the world is forced to bare its soul for a few months and I think we all need to bare our souls to someone every now and again.
As I'm winding my way through new ventures I've been bending Mr. Tide's ear a lot lately and he patiently listens and offers sage advice. Someone should probably give the man a medal, because nothing I drone on and on about is really anything to write home about, but he treats it as if I'm pondering world peace or ways to save the planet. You have to love someone who lets you bare your soul and doesn't laugh when you share your dreams and aspirations.
Well it's back to work for me...at least until Downton Abbey starts! I hope you each have a wonderful week and if you have something to write home about, do tell, I can always take time away from work for a good story!
