A Winter Farmhouse
Regardless if you live where there’s 12 inches
of snow on the ground, or barely a dusting – this time of year
makes you instinctively want to cozy up your home.
I know, I know – you may very well passionately dislike Winter.
You may long for sandy beaches and palm trees and flip-flops.
But, until warmer weather settles in for the season…
we just have to find ways to add some
All we can do is hunker down and make the most of it.
Spend time playing games, or finish that novel you started long ago
and are far from finished.
Remembering the bliss of what it’s like to enjoy
Sometimes the soul needs quiet time to simply appreciate the
peacefulness that only happens when the snow is falling softly
against the window panes.
Even when you think you will scream if you have to spend one
more moment “trapped” inside your home –
and, even when the weatherman threatens more snow –
dig inside and remind yourself that it’s okay to slow down.
It’s okay to try out that recipe you’d pinned months ago and
never had time to fix before.
And, then give yourself permission to have seconds.
You can do an extra workout when the ground thaws.
While you’re at it…put on a big pot of chowder or soup or stew.
And, after that extra helping of cake, you might as well throw
in some crusty bread.
The crackle of the fire seems to be lulling you to sleep…
after all – with a full tummy who can resist a long, Winter nap.
So draw up a hot bath –
Linger a little longer than you normally do.
Then, snuggle under some cozy blankets and let Ole’ Man Winter
do his thing outside, while you do yours inside.
As night creeps through the windows, and the sun settles below
the snow-covered horizon… take a moment to cherish these fleeting
moments. Permit yourself to enjoy the solitude
that a snowstorm allows.
… because when the temperatures rise and the snow melts.
Reality will return. The hustle and bustle of life will again protrude
on your serenity. And you will look back at this season, and be
thankful that you allowed yourself to simply –
enjoy the now.
