The sun beckoned us out to take a walk in the woods.  It was a welcome respite from the stretch of bitter cold weather we'd been having.  The three of us caught up on each other's lives, relishing the time spent together.

Patiently he waits for me to complete my morning yoga practice.  He likes to be wherever I am, my little shadow.

Fog greeted me this morning, so thick I was unable to see down to the end of our road.  It cast an eerie feeling over landscape and I hurried back inside to the warmth of our home.  Rain arrived shortly thereafter, turning the snow into a memory.

Dinner at the new sushi place in town.  The line cook on the right spent most of our time there perfecting his skill at creating the perfect first layer of rice.  Gathering a ball of sticky rice in his hands, he'd pat it over and over before smoothing it down onto a bamboo mat.  Satisfied (or not), he would then gather it up, toss it out and begin once more.

I awoke this morning to a soft light easing into our bedroom window.  It was a gentle start to my Sunday.

These hang over the kitchen table throughout the Christmas season.  I am not yet ready to put them away until next year.  Snowflakes last all winter, right?

Hydrangeas in winter.  Seeking beauty on a bitterly cold day, I realized I needed to go no further than outside my front door.

An unexpected snow day.  Piano was canceled so I was able to work in the studio all morning.  I'm trying my hand at making my own collage paper using a Gelli plate.  I had mixed results but keep reminding myself that I am a beginner and this is part of the learning process.
