Enjoying my slippers


Jack Frost is having so much fun and being a little crafty and naughty too.
This morning as I walked my youngest hobbit down to school I had to take the teeniest of steps so as not to slip and fall.The paths had been transformed into invisible ice glass. We must have looked somewhat strange, me shuffling along and my daughter trying to attempt pirouettes.
Ideas and thoughts are all tangled with ribbon and bows at the moment.
Christmas draws near and I still have presents to buy. I have tried to keep a distance from all the madness that takes over and have been finding time to stand and stare and to tread placidly and have been enjoying simple things that December has to offer.

Sweet woodsmoke,fairylights,our little bird decorations that we collect,tiny toadstools,bookshop browsing, scented candles,frosty mornings, clear starlit skies,owls hooting,cats finding the warmest spots, and my toastie new warm slippers!




And tonight we will enjoy the school Christmas play.

  2. lovely, i felt like you could've been looking out of my window too! the snow glistens on top of the mountains, the leaves shimmer like diamonds, everything is beautiful and very still. i too need shopping but can't face the bedlam that driving into the town will bring. For now i'm happy to sit by the window, enjoying the beauty in all things.thankyou for reminding me xXx

  3. Slippers! That is what I need! Instead, I am stomping around the house grumbling about the mysterious lack of socks, and my icy toes.
    Still, the cold does bring beauty!

  8. What a magical blog - I shall certainly call again if I can remember how I found you in the first place!! I love all your frosty images and your paintings, especially the birds - my daughter would love it too as she is mad about crows and ravens, they are quite majestic aren't they. You make us open our eyes to the beauty all around us, even on a dull damp day - thankyou so much.

  14. The fairy looks magical in the frost. Sometimes it's hard to stay unstressed at this time of year but your post has a lovely calm feeling and your cat obviously picks up on the vibes in your house!
