Two warm, spring-like days and now the frosty cold nights return. January is bipolar this year! We so need the moisture that a few days snowbound would be worth the confinement if we got some snow or rain. I haven’t felt like much this week, but gradually I come around. Coming home from the eye doctor one day, DH and I stopped at a new flea market, small but will a grand fellow from Scotland as owner. DH found a huge wood plane and I picked up this brand new pitcher with sticker still in place. The price was only a third of the original price. Of course, it was the blue and white that caught my eye as I really don’t need another pitcher!
So yesterday I straightened cupboards, wiped counters, mopped a floor, and said goodbye to the reds in the dining room. While I love the blue and whites, they seem almost cold after weeks of warm reds and holly greens. I left out the icy candle holder which is wintry. Friends brought this to us from their stay in Finland a few years ago, and it always calls to me on wintry days. I have timed candles in it so that at dusk each evening they come on and then go out was we head for bed. They cast a nice glow on cold nights.
Tonight the emails warmed me because I got news of an acceptance. Thanks to Donna over at http://donnasbookpub.blogspot.com for alerting me to the call out for Cupid’s Quiver, an anthology of short romances. Looks like they will be using mine! So despite the coming cold air, I am warm with encouragement. I see a new week ahead that maybe I can get back to work. Hearing of an acceptance warms me up to more writing!
Here is to a great week ahead for both readers and writers!
