chapter one

snow day

first snowstorm of 2014


benches in winter

the messy eater

The snow has quietness in it; no songs,
no smells, no shouts or traffic.
When I speak
my own voice shocks me.
~Ann Sexton

continuous snow, bone chilling cold
so begins my book of 2014

time for my after-the-holidays hibernation
got my stack of books and my kindle loaded
a few movies to watch
some new yarn to knit
lots of photos to edit
and many blogs to catch up on

all this should take me through February, don’t you think?

have a wonderful weekend, hope you are warm and cozy wherever you may be!

  1. Your images just stop me in my tracks and make me sink right into them. Lovely as ever! YOU stay warm and cozy! Enjoy that stack of books.

  2. I’m glad to see you were already able to get out there with beautiful results! Love the one of the person trudging through it all. The birds show such perseverance too. I found a bird in our shed today and was happy he found a warm spot.

  3. Nice photos of snow scenes. There was so much beauty in Michigan last month but the cold kept me indoors. Your hibernation activities sound perfect, Susan.

  4. Dear Susan, I just wanted to let you know that you are one of my Awardees for the Awesome Blog Content Award. Find all the details in my blog with the same name. I hope you are well and accept 🙂

  5. Beautiful pictures! Everything looks so peaceful. Oh, they make me miss the snow! Your after holiday hibernation sounds good to me, too. (Even though we have sunny skies and 80 degree weather here in Southern California.) Enjoy your reading, 🙂

  6. Such wonderful snowy pictures and I do love the B&W one of the fence leading to Summer Street! Wonderful! I feel for the birds when it’s so cold and those you have photographed here are fluffing up their feathers to keep warm. Your programme of books to read, new yarn to knit and some films to watch sounds so snug! There is good in every season, isn’t there?!

  7. Brrrrr, that’s even snow to make you want to stay warm inside. Those poor birds need better shelter (and food). Lovely photos of the white stuff.

  8. Looks like you got what we got, including cold we’ve not had in a couple of years.
    Good time to be inside. I’m doing the photo look-through/edit too.
    Got enough to keep me busy for quite some time.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Susan!

  9. Great photos again! Summer Street – yeah! Sure! You’re doing such beautiful work – very professional – and I like the way you’re changing the background to enhance the images – it’s all really excellent! Stay warm!

  10. It is March now, and I am ready for the warmth of spring.
    However, when it is hot and mid-summer, I will return to enjoy the calm, quiet coldness of your beautiful wintry photos (with a glass of iced tea in my hand).
