Last night I turned the light on for the patio before letting Charlie outside and it was snowing. Again. Smaller flakes. Floating through the air like feathers from a bird on high.
It didn’t last very long I don’t think. This morning there is still snow on the ground from the weekend. That’s two times it’s snowed in less than a week. Kind of unusual in these parts.
Below is Ivy sleeping while sitting up. She’s such a funny bunny.
My Christmas Present To Myself:
Years and years ago I enjoyed listening to soft piano music. No words. Just music. I had CD’s but I have no idea what happened to them. But music has really not been a part of my life since then.
Yesterday I was browsing on Amazon and decided to sample piano music. I listened to new to me musicians. And I realized that I still loved listening it.
Nothing jarring. Just soft melodious music that made my body more relaxed as time went on and I went from artist to artist. I found myself enthralled once again.
I ordered a Crossley radio/CD player in natural and four CD’s to listen to. This next year I want to spend more time relaxing and finding simple daily contentment. Not letting the news dominate my mood. Living in the here and now.
After all, don’t they say that most things we fret about happening never come to pass?

What I’m Currently Reading:
Last night I began reading “The Stolen Marriage” by Diane Chamberlain. I did not want to stop reading it last night because I was so involved in the story line.
In 1944 23 year old Tess Demello becomes pregnant. She is engaged to be married to her childhood sweetheart, but it isn’t his child. She turns to the baby’s father for help and agrees to marry him.
Tess quickly finds that she’s trapped in a strange and loveless marriage. She’s far away from home and friendless. She’s well aware that her husband Henry has his secrets and the townspeople seem to know something that she does not.
Then Henry’s younger sister Lucy is with Tess when their car crashes into the water and Lucy drowns. Everyone blames Tessa because she was driving.
Tess, having just gotten her nursing license before she married Henry, begins helping with the polio epidemic. This defies Henry’s wishes, as he is rich and didn’t want his wife to work. Through this work Tess’s life finally begins to gain meaning.
Henry’s actions are growing more alarming as time goes on. How can she untangle the truth behind her husband’s mysterious behavior?
