Daily Reflections From My Window

February 27, 2021 Saturday Full Snow Moon.

“May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full Moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.”

Irish blessing

I’m not sure, but I may have missed this full moon since I wasn’t up at 3:16 this morning, but the last few days kept thinking the moon was full. It is called the Full Snow Moon because in the US, February is usually the snowiest month. Let’s hope that’s true and from here on in, the snow will be less.

We still have quite a bit. I guess it’s our elevation. It’s about 22* but supposed to go up to the high 40s today with rain. That would get some of this ice melted. Here are a few pictures from this morning. My little red bench is still surrounded by snow, the alpacas are wet and the porch furniture is still buried. It’s a lot different than my view from last week!

I am so fortunate. I have the ability to get away for a week with Jay’s sisters. We all get along and many years ago one of them got a house in Florida and made it a point to start this “sisters trip” and they all insisted that I come too even though I am the in-law. They are pretty special. We’ve done it every year since. Just the girls. We get reacquainted and catch up and after a week of kayaking, lazing in the sun and eating lots of fresh seafood, we go home refreshed. This was a hard year. We are all going through our own challenges, but one thing is constant: we are there for each other, to hold each other up and support each other. It’s really special.

I would love to do something similar with my siblings. We haven’t been together as a family since our parents passed away 20+ years ago and have really fallen out of touch. We are all so different and don’t have anywhere communal and neutral to meet. Plus there’s Covid and health concerns. I might have to work on this. 🤞🏻

Here’s a video of the beautiful beach. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins several times and I didn’t get any great pictures. I hope this video relaxes you.

It was so refreshing. There is definitely something about the salt air.

I took my hoops down and left them there. They’ll be ready for next time! Dawn, I’ll need a few more hand hoops. What colors do you have?

I came back refreshed and full of ideas. I got my socks all washed yesterday and they are drying. As soon as Jay fixes our printer I can print labels for them and get them listed on my Etsy shop (which is linked to this site).

I hope this winter is over soon for all of us and that the growing season will start. I love to see the bright lime green of new shoots and leaves. How can there not be a God when every season is so full of wonder?

Here’s what I made us for breakfast today. No crust frittata with Canadian bacon, spinach, onions and garlic. Pretty easy and lasts a few days. Cook once, eat multiple times is my motto, as is:

Remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of a full grown llama (which is bigger than an alpaca) between you and the next person.

Have a blessed day!

It must be getting warmer-the fog is rolling in.
