Cabin Fever

Middle of winter
Stuck indoors for weeks on end
Pulling my hair out

Under a Blanket

February 4, 2015 § 2 Comments

The first month of 2015 was awesome.

January saw some positive changes in routine, consistent adherence to a schedule and a record amount of sorting, organizing and purging.

A great way to start a year.

The last week though has seen a pause in the momentum. It’s been very cold and/or snowing for days on end. Looking outside through a sheer curtain of falling white flakes tends to slow life down.

So, for now, life is mostly being lived under a blanket in front of the television watching Netflix and knitting. Not very exciting I know but if life has taught me anything it’s that excitement is highly overrated.

I think we’ll have a fire later.

:D

No One Decides

No one creature is capable of ruling all of creation
We are a conglomerate, a cooperation, a living and breathing dream

Let’s stop shooting ourselves in the foot with downplaying
Let’s stop shooting each other in the face out of ignorance

No one decides the outcome of a war
No one decides the truth we all fight for

We are a grand collective, a global village,
And more than capable

Let’s stop dumbing down our children with lies being sold as truth
Let’s stop feeding them that happiness rests in eternal youth

No one person is able to bear the brunt
When society, as a whole, goes mad

We are a conglomerate, an esoteric union
When parts of us fail, we should be sad

Let’s stop fucking killing each other for no damn good reason
Really?  A cartoon!

Under Winter’s Blanket

Spring sleeps dreaming
Of promised blooms, of making room

For bigger, stronger and more bright
Breathing in the dark while waiting for the light

Soaking in the chill while assured that warmth is waiting
No need for wanting or hoping or faithing

It just is and Spring sleeps knowing
Under Winter’s blanket

Happy 2015, eh!

I am very excited about this new year.

Just as I love an untouched piece of paper, how I revel in clean sheets and prefer to cook in a tidy kitchen, a new year is a thing to be appreciated.  A chance to marker opportunities for feeling positive, being productive and creating possibilities.  Aw, how poetic.  :D

Anyway, as with the other areas of my life, I’m going to approach blogging a little differently this year. I’m aiming for less angst filled journal and more charming scrapbook, less WWJD and more KISS.

Snipits, bylines, cool links, photo with a caption, a recipe, the occasional rant or maybe even (if I get up the incentive to learn how to) an embedded video.  Who knows how it will turn out but I’m looking forward to a fresh start.

Happy New Year!

:D

It’s only December what now??????

Actually, I’m still waiting on a few packages to be delivered and I have a bit of running around to do. But really, other than some baking I’m all but ready for Christmas. Who’d have thunk it, especially because I started out this holiday season very humbug. I’m feeling better about it now.  :D

It’s been snowing ALL DAY so there’s little worry that we won’t have a white Christmas which is always a relief. Not that I’m a fan of the snow and cold, I’m not. It’s just that, around these parts, without snow it just isn’t the same.

Besides, if it’s warm enough to snow it’s not so cold that this is happening…
