A stroll to stretch our legs after a long drive to Vermont.
Sunset to the west,
Venus and Betelgeuse (the red star) shimmering
in the sky to the east.
Hunting dogs barking down the valley.
A fierce chill in the air.
Local chicken and apple sausages, and onions,
sauteed in a pan on the Home Comfort.
Snug and warm.
Re-watching Downton Abbey season one,
in preparation for January 6th.
Breathing and noticing and appreciating
simple things in the midst of this busy season.
Relaxing while we may.
Are you able to carve out a bit of peace in your days?
