The Season Has Ended

Yesterday, January 6, was the 12th day of Christmas.  It is also known as Epiphany or Three Kings Day.  In this house, we observe that day, not with the giving of gifts as some do, but by making it the final day to display our Christmas decorations.

Even a look out the window left me feeling a bit sad.  Light snow on the greenery spoke of very cold weather as winter deepens.


This year has been more like living in the freezer.  At times like this, I tend to remember living in a place where palm trees grew and green plants flourished.  Ahhh.

  1. I’ve experienced those nice warm places for short periods of time, and they were nice for a break, but I still love Michigan the best !!

  2. I’m dreaming of palm trees, the lapping of the sea against the shore, the gentle breeze wafting. . . Nevermind, we’re stuck here in Nature’s Cold Storage Unit, too.

    • People have lived in this latitude for centuries. I think that means, we’ll survive. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t dream.
