My mother bought another snowbird.
So I had some photo fun with the two we have now.
It’s officially winter now. The winter solstice marks the darkest day of the year… This, of course, applies to the northern hemisphere, not the southern.
It was pretty bright during the day, though! An indigo blue sky Thursday.
Some turkeys passed by the back of the house. (I couldn’t get a get a good shot of them.) They’ve been “wandering around the neighborhood,” according to my mother.
You may have noticed a slight difference in color with the latest photos here… I’ve been compensating for an excess green the iPhone makes. The snow in the new photos has a violet tint— but so it does to my eyes. The (amateur) photog I am, I may sometimes recheck the scene, by physically walking back, to line up the colors.
Lights are up, and the small plastic tree is up, but there are no lights on the tree (not pictured).
The year has, for the most part, been slow going for me. In the second half of February, I aimed to sit down and write for myself… It’s now toward the end of the year.
If you asked me, “Who dis?” I couldn’t tell you.
It’s hard to recover your mind after it’s turned to mush… Sleep doesn’t magically fix that. The environment must also be improved; which includes removing social media where it’s toxic.
Sometimes, you gotta say ‘no’ to what no longer works, and say ‘yes’ to life. And that’s easier said than done when you only know how to connect in the ways you know how to connect.
Well. This is probably the last post before Christmas. So I will end off by saying, Happy Holidays, everyone. 🙂 I suggest utilizing the seasonal darkness to get some deeper rest.
