Surviving November Pt. 2

Spinning yarn by lamplight in the late afternoon. We’re all fed, we’ve offered most prayers, and now we relax – the babes with books, Lego and K’nex, and me by sitting in the stool by the fire spinning a pretty coloured bit of fluff into something useful.

We spend an hour nattering, making, reading and just being together. I don’t seem to notice the looming dark when my hands are kept busy. It seems this is what winter afternoons were made for.

  1. So beautiful Debbie:) I agree…Our winters here are brutal..we get record snowfall from Lake Ontario, and temps have dropped as low as -40..As long as I keep my hands and my mind busy..it seems to pass with relative ease..and enjoyment!! I am ALWAYS ready for Spring..and my garden, but Winter offers its gifts as well…
