thursday was the coldest I remember it ever being
the temperature was -1 when I woke but the wind chill made it feel like -20!
that's Fahrenheit degrees not Cecilius!
It was warmer the next day and we got a dusting of snow
which I would rather have than the blasty cold
i love walking the wood in the snow
on my kitchen window sill there are three jars
full of sea glass
they glisten and gleam in the morning sunlight
there is cake for breakfast with my coffee this morning
oatmeal cinnamon cake with a trace of chocolate on the top
which I baked yesterday
it warmed up the house and made everything smell spicy and sweet
winter mornings are good for cake at breakfast time
and long walks in the low light of an early afternoon
I arise today through the strength of heaven
light of sun, radiance of moon
splendor of fire, speed of lightning
swiftness of wind, firmness of rock.
