A white winterland

fresh, clean, all yards look alike,

Snowmen and sledding. ~

Too many gray skies,

even the birds are hiding.

Long, cold, Winter months.

~ Betrayal ~

The wounded bird soars

                  with a blood-soaked breast.

Swirling,

                 Crashing,

                                                            or … Soaring Higher.

Carolina Chickadee

The Carolina Chickadee and the Black-capped Chickadee are so much alike that even Audubon didn’t realize that they were different until years after they had been first discovered. Both are part of the mixed community of birds that visit woods and backyard feeders. ~

Hygge

Hygge 

Even though we have already had the winter solstice, for those of us in the thrust of winter, sometimes it seems that the early darkness won’t get shorter anytime soon. While wintertime can be long, especially January; the plus side is this is the season to get your Hygge on!

Maybe you will just get cozy and embrace all those favorite things that make snuggling up so fun to do.

Some simple and easy ways to get your Hygge on are:

  • have a favorite warm drink
  • put on some soothing or favorite music
  • read a good book or more
  • change up your environment with new scents
  • changing your lighting can change your mood
  • watch a favorite movie
  • take a short nap with a cozy throw
  • wear your favorite soft sweater, even if it is old
  • enjoy a cozy fire or just enjoy some quiet time watching it snow
  • make a favorite family dish

While Hygge can mean different things for each  of us, it all involves enjoying the moment. What are those small things that make a day special for you? How long has it been since you have done your favorite?  By changing up our routines and doing something we enjoy that is cozy and involves the senses, it can help make us less prone to affective seasonal disorder and depression. It can lift our outlook and attitude when we incorporate some time especially for those simple things we enjoy and that gives us little breaks in our day to look forward to. Even at the end of a very busy day, just something short and cozy can make it just right. So what are we waiting for… let’s get our Hygge on!

The Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) is nicknamed the ‘Snowbird’, because according to some folks, winter is not far behind when you spot these birds. They tend to live in small flocks during the winter. While they live year-round in some areas of North America, they usually migrate North in the Spring. These medium-size birds (4 1/2″ – 6 1/2″) are one of the most common birds in North America, but are fun to watch as they visit the feeder.

Poetry ~ First Snow

Snow Today

First Snow

Gentle rain turning

to soft downy flakes,

each intricate and unique.

 

Sounds of the world

muted in the deep.

Solitude calling us

to slow down,

memories we keep.

 

Soft downy flakes

turning all to white,

except the dark bark of the trees,

standing sentries

along the steep banks

of the creek. ~
