The break..

I took part in a prison break today. My own escape from the walls of my house into the world at large.

My first stop was the doctor’s office where they shot xrays at my leg and said looks good! So now I can wear actual shoes! On both feet even! I know, I know..crazy exciting stuff here. My life is filled with these sorts of things.

But after that it was stopping to get provisions for the return trip and future exile back in the place of home. Food,wine, and a few seasons of some shows from the library.

I am ready for a real break..a break out of this place and out of the life I have been living.

As soon as I get my wheels…this bitch is gone!


I tell myself in the mirror sometimes..

“You’re a hotty…but today.. You’re a frizzy haired witch in plaid. Still hot though..<3”

There was a current
in the air and it sparked
the flames that we danced
for, ignited the eyes
of the dragon and
together we moved
in beat and time
the drummed out
prayer sent up
and left to fly-

Snowy rambles….

Today there is snow. I watched it starting to drift down last night as I was heading to bed. Just small little bits of fluff, it had been spitting snow off an on most of the day yesterday, but this morning there is snow. The first dusting of the season, with powder like flakes and fat lacy flakes.

It can be very beautiful.

It can also be pretty damn cold. I have mentioned I am not a fan of the cold. Oh well, tis the season, yes.

I have a lot of things to be doing over the next week or so. I have gotten my trees up and my outside lights up. Now I have a table full of odd craft pieces,beads, jewelry, tools,screws and silk floral parts to sort and find homes for, and to begin the onslaught of creative things. Yule is coming and I am not prepared, I have a secret santa gift to get sent out, and other gifts to make, oh and fudge! I am making fudge for gifts, because it’s the best stuff I have ever made.

so I will leave you with some of the pics from the last few days. and the snow from this morning, and hopes that you have  beautiful day where ever you are.

Sunrise rambles…

I watched the sun rise through the trees this morning,with the company of cold air, brilliant blue sky sprinkled with small soft wisps of rose colored clouds.

It was flawless in its beauty.

The air cold enough that the frost isn’t melting away from everything just yet, but it  is starting to fade. I am not a huge fan of winter, I don’t do cold well, but this winter I am looking forward to being in the woods with the snow and the frost and the ice.

I will go out in it and marvel at the beauty of it.

I don’t have much more to ramble about today, just gonna drink my coffee and start on the endless list of things to get done.

I hope you find the beauty you seek in all that you see.

Quiet….sort of….

It’s early here, the only sounds are that of the fire popping in the wood-stove and me clicking at these keys. I like being up in the early hours. It is quiet and calming. Giving me a little bit of time to have my coffee and adjust my brain for the day ahead.

Today I am going to attempt to get the tree up. I got the Nutcrackers out last night, as they are always my first Yule time decorations. They stand guard against the night while waiting for the return of the Sun at Solstice.

Of course trying to find a place for the tree is another matter. I decided yesterday that the only way to fit it in the living room was to take the recliner out to the barn for the time being, but it should work. I also have to find room for the small tree as well, it will most likely be going in my room.  The twins have a tiny tree that I keep for them in their room, and that one already has a spot.

Did I mention I liked the holidays? I mean REALLY like the holidays? Well I do!

We like to start it off right by being part of the Krampus Night Parade, which if your in central Indiana you should come out and see what it is all about, you can check out the Facebook page Bloomington Krampus. This is a fantastic event and I have so much fun with it. I am one of the Parade Marshal’s aka Krampus Handler. I walk the beasts along the route looking for naughty children for them to scare.
