and happy Friday!

“Chill air and wintery winds! My ear has grown familiar with your song; I hear it in the opening year, I listen, and it cheers me long.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Winter garden

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! We made it through the week of fickle weather. This past week’s snowfall has not been bad as it was last year but it is has been unpredictable. My Viejo and I along with a few of my colleagues were checking weather at least every hour to see if and when it was going to snow only to realize it would change every other minute. In a few group texts with my cousins and girlfriends we checked in comparing or weather conditions. We even shared moments of exhaustion as some of our kids having 2-hour school delays and some home with no school leaving a few of us working from home. It is fascinating how we live 15 minutes, at most 30 minutes away from one another and the amount of snow covering our neighborhoods were so different.

Winter strolls through Pacific Northwest gardens within, around and outside the city brings tranquility to my otherwise busy mind. Just being in the snowy gardens feel almost as if the world has stopped rushing around. Everything is still.

Stay warm…
