The rain hardly stops and the snow has almost melted away. The sun is packed away behind a thick doughy bed of heavy grey cloud. But this did not deter me from walking outdoors yesterday.
I love the almost mysterious feeling of walking with an umbrella. I have two - one is a bright and fun one decorated with cute forest animals but yesterday I chose the plain black one.
I felt safe and anonymus as I strode through the nieghborhood.
I saw this apple bejeweled with raindrops, so wet with coming defrosted that I imagine the apple to be applesauce on a tree. The little kid in me wants to quickly pluck it and squish it under my shoe. I'm certain it would make a satisfying splotch on the pavement if I did.
I was truly surprised to see these mushrooms coming up! I can't recall ever seeing any this early in the year.
Each rosehip sports it's own gem and the scene of entire banks of them together is a delight to the eye.
There's beauty to be found even on a rainy dark day in the middle of winter.
An addon to yesterday: I do 'babyproof' our home if we expect little ones coming and I have a lovely toybox as well.
I have two pillows on my side of the bed and I'm quite attached to them. I always take them with me when we travel, in fact.
One pillow is a contoured foam one. It's quite rigid and it dips in on one side. I use this one as a 'base'.
The other pillow is a light and fluffy, good Old Fashioned feather pillow. I've had it forever - so long it feels like a part of me. It's as soft as the fluff in a bullrush and it wraps tenderly around my head and cuddles me to sleep. It smells like me and I take great comfort in that when I have had a day where the world has ripped my face off. Somehow, smelling my sleep in the pillow brings me peace and I'm able to let any horrid old day go.
I think my pillow cradles my head into good positions for dreaming.
Do YOU use a hard or soft pillow? Foam or stuffing or feathers?
