The Gift Of A Day


We were given an amazing gift today~
a wonderfully warm day....
unusual for Upstate New York
in February.
A record breaking 67 degrees!



What to do, right?
We celebrated...
making Iced Tea~
opening the windows to let the breezes in 
and 
opening the back door; 
allowing the glass door 
to help us enjoy
the sunshine and warmth.

It makes you realize,
 that the promise of Spring
is real.

The days are longer.
We are ready to awaken 
and enjoy our days...
filled with warm sunshine
 and greenery.

I had noticed yesterday, 
our Starling friends 
have returned.
Tonight they filled the trees 
and chattered happily,
as the sun went down.

We will enjoy tomorrow as well,
 as it will hold a similar warmth~
 then we will go back
 to our regular February.
The one that will glide into March...
with cold days....
and snow.


but oh, 
the glorious gift
that we have been given
today!

Life's Pace



We did it.
We have survived 
the first year of retirement 
for Tim.
It is uncharted territory,
both financially and emotionally.
I think now~
of course we survived it fine...
what was I thinking?!



We are enjoying ourselves. 
Tim watches Wee Mackenzie
during the week.
Young Master Thomas
stops by 
on those evenings, 
for a snack
and to blow me kisses
(he blows me over!).

How wonderful to have
all of our kids
 and family 
within an hour and a half radius.


Winter made a strong presence
 this past week~
I am truly a Yankee Girl and 
I love the storms.
Soup simmering and Hot Chocolate!
Add some candle glow to create by...
perfect!



It has all been a nice pace.
We have had our share 
of bumps along the way,
as anyone does...

Everything fell into place
and what a lovely place
it has been.


As the year goes forward,
we do as well.
We look forward to 
all that this phase 
of our lives has to offer.
From the regularity
of  things,
 such as 
Early Work Mercantile;
to
the unexpected.
Mmmmhmmm...
wedding plans are taking hold.
