I wake up.
I pee. I feed Soul-o. He pees. The power goes back on.
I look outside, about 2" and snowing. A lot.
I make oatmeal and tea.
I notice the tiny solar lights I placed in the clay lantern is still glowing and there was no sunshine yesterday.
The sun comes up even though I cannot see it.
I eat the oatmeal. I don't feel like tea, so I save it for later and make coffee for a change.
It is still snowing. A lot.
I look through from the back of the whiteish cabin from yesterday. Hold it up to the skylight, ask myself why this is the back? I think about sanity as something more inside out.
I play with the photo, erasing the background, but then leaving the top part. I like how it combines, life, cloth and a sense of drawing.
Flickering. I post all of this. Before the power goes out again.
It is still snowing a lot.
Rain, 40mph wind, big branch falling from tree. Scooter and I cuddle up together in bed and can’t think of one good reason to get up. A designated lazy day.
Twinkling fairy house.🌟
We here in Maine are awaiting our part of the storm. All stocked up on essentials, pretzels, chips and ice cream!🤗
no place to go is a gift…
cloth is a good friend in a storm. rainstorm here today. i’ll play with my cloth friends.
it’s a blizzard here right now. Rain there again and again…
Your morning routine sounds so much like mine – down to the oatmeal – that I had to laugh. Mornings are special to me – watching the light gradually get brighter, listening to the birds, walking my dog in the back yard. I sometimes wish dawn could last all day!
It’s a marvelous transition. Dusk too.
we are all like the sun which never stops shining ever., It just gets obscured with the pollution and other stuff in the air. Our souls are always shining brightly, it is jut the fear, lack of love, greed, envy,j judgements etc. that cover up our light , we remove those things and there we are , just glowing. Something you said triggered these thoughts. Thank you again for your lovely posts
to be a cause for thought is a very sweet gift, thank you…
Love seeing those tiny lights. Sun up even when we can’t see its rays. Sun power.
made the sky look like a piece of parchment.
Yes, oatmeal and tea and Ginger, our cat, loves the rose in a bowl of water. Jane Austen said and I agree, “There’s no place like home for comfort.” ..waiting for the rain to change to snow. Nesting. . .
it has changed from rain to snow to rain to snow.
I avoid thinking about shoveling. maybe tomorrow.
the comfort of cozy routine. piece in the eye of the storm. the warmth of fairy lights merrily shining on. the glow of light thru patchwork. imagining a cloth lantern…
I wove one once upon a time.
Ah! I saw those little lights and thot they were a reflection of some kind!
How magical they are still twinkling for you and Soul-O…
Love this very literal diary entry 😅
I just love the reverse of the work, don’t you!? 🤍
These little lights, in a mason jar. Been there so long now. Have always loved the otherside.
I love this square…
All the cats are napping again after our morning routine. The first cup was coffee but the second one is going to be tea. 🙂 Oatmeal sounds good.
Oh, the snow it piling up. It becomes quieter. Soul-o is watching it fall. Oatmeal cooked with dried figs…
your lantern is holding the light for you
we got a lot of snow here too, but we do have power
I’m glad you have a fireplace to keep warm
seems ok now, we do have a generator if we need it. The power goes out here a lot in the valley.
Your little piece in the center reminds me of a tiny bird’s nest. Enjoy the warmth of your own nest this morning, Jude…
Stay warm! We have wind and rain, snow due this afternoon. The white cloth holds light and lets light pass through it. Love the play with erasure.
Erase, a kind of “poof!”. Love it too.
Wind on the way…
I enjoy your morning story with its surrounding sense of quietness as i have my afternoon coffee with a summer breeze blowing.
Love your picture.
summer, seems like a dream right now
Rain and wind here as we head out. Tomorrow more. Sanity surely can be inside out.
sanity is at least, another side
Looks peaceful 🤍❄️
Good morning. Snow hasn’t started here but expected this afternoon. We have wind. And will be having tea and oatmeal soon. Then stitching.
Wind, tea and oatmeal. Perfect.
Soup later. And stitch of course. 😎
