Filling January

January has been overcast and dreary, and flying by very quickly.  I always endeavor to fill January with as much color and light as possible.  We are filling our bellies with food from pantry and root cellar, reflecting back on last year's garden, while planning the next.

We have had more candle light, more board games, and less outdoor exercise!

We have had snow and freezing rain, then snow again. Hopefully,  conditions will soon be right for some cross-country ski excursions through our quiet woods.

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you all the joys of January.

When I began blogging, over nine years ago, I choose to use a blogging "alias." I wan't sure how much I wanted to disclose about my life, plus I loved the idea of using the lexicon of poetry to name my family in blog posts.

However, having just published a book under my real name, it feels like the right time to reveal that here.

So... without further ado, My name is Marcie. A little link to my book on Amazon follows. 

I have been taking some nature photos and taking some short brisk walks recently.  Hope you are spending time in nature too!

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you happiness.
