Taking a simple break to breathe

Oh how thankful I am for a moment to sit and just breathe.
Do you too long for simplicity after the Christmas holidays?

It is so bitter cold out, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the sprigs of lavendar that I cut today.
The plant is still so beautiful and fragrant ...I wasn't expecting that.

Enjoy your weekend!


A dusting of snow and then...

Snow lake dusting 12-26-12
The wind howled ...darting this way and that all around our villa leaving behind a beautiful dusting of snow.
Then the snow melted and these appeared...
