in a snowglobe...

snow day


snowy day II

atlanta has been experiencing some serious winter wonderland-ness. i love it. all of it. things i am grateful for, in no particular order...

...i love that atlanta is wildly unprepared for any sort of snowpocalypse and most schools were closed all week long.

...i love that ed didn't have to go to work for half the week.

...i love walking our beagles in the snow(even though i slipped and fell flat on my back).

...i love numb noses and sloshy bean boots.

...i love walking to the grocery store for silly things like paper towels.

... i love hunkering down in my home and giving each neglected room the care it needed.

... i love making various soups for days on end(beef tenderloin, cauliflower, chicken & almond, and a hearty chicken and vegetable).

... i love curling up in my weathered leather club chair wrapped in a wool blanket, beagle in lap, book in hand.

i love being snowed in, because it gave me time to be extremely introspective and calm. it gave me incredible time to tend to the parts of my home that i had ignored. and it gave me time to be with my family in a warm and happy home, with burning cedar incense to pretend a fire was blazing. and lots and lots of soup.

I love your list of gratitude. I am insanely jealous of your winter wonderland. California is expecting high 70s this weekend. I am grateful for the sunshine and all she brings with her . . . but its January and I am in love. White house with black shutters so reminds me of where I grew up. xo Samantha

Sounds like you're coping very well!

I'm glad Atlanta has been kind(er) to you!
I found the snow really inspiring and I loved curling up on the couch for days. I loved the snow--until it turned dangerous!

I think this is my first time commenting, so i'll say now that I love your blog!

I think I left that last comment under the wrong user ID, but all the same things still apply (Atlanta being beautiful but dangerous, etc.)

Anyway, I love your blog, it's wonderfully inspiring and (guess what?) my favorite color is shiny, too!

Ginny - that is my house in Atlanta! Did you know that when you took the picture?? Too funny! Such a sweet surprise. I am jealous of all the snow y'all have had.

Let me know if you make it out to San Francisco any time soon!
