Life Is Good

Last year at this time, I was living without electricity and about to enter one of the most depressed winters of my life. After the October storm, the broken trees of Buffalo really set the tone for my entire winter. I was out of sorts and blue.

I realized this evening how different things feel this year. Today I wandered into Pier One Imports and discovered my beloved ginger peach candles are back. So, I am currently sitting on the couch, basking in my favorite smell, alternately crocheting and clacking away at my computer, with the soft sounds of a meaningless (to me) hockey game keeping me company. I’m utterly content.

Happy Yarn

Happy Ginger Peach

Life is good.

    I love seeing photos of your place.
    it always makes me smile and feel more like we are hanging out together.
    Here is to a passing of another year and no more broken trees.
    I love you.

    I, too, am relishing my electricity and heat, remembering the depth of my darkness and shivering last year.

    I do hope, however, that your happiness does NOT rule out another Xmas branch…
