More than just art

a bowl of soup

is all I wanted when I came in from the cold….

and so I chopped courgettes, peeled potatoes, added stock and warm spices.

I wanted to hibernate …

and so I did until morning.

When I woke my fuzzy head of recent days had subsided – my sinuses felt a little clearer …

and so I got busy with small jobs and make a shepherd pie to warm my son when he is home

late from his road trip. it’s waiting to go into the oven and bubble with homemade goodness.

I sustain those I love with hot food on a winters day …

and so too I am sustained.

a January morning

of glorious blue skies I simply had to catch.

I hadn’t taken any pictures since before the holidays and I was itching to.

Lo and behold – all this beauty in the depths of winter and all a short walk from home.





….ahh…now that feels better.


What simpler manifestation of living in the moment, than a walk with my camera to blow away winter cobwebs.
