Embracing Winter

 I am embracing Winter

For now I am content with the small pleasures to be found  organizing my office.
I  putter.
No deadline  beside Spring or my own inclination to set aside snowmen and pine boughs.

And why should I hurry the season? 
There is plenty of time for

And in the frosty season, when the sun
Was set, and visible for many a mile
The cottage windows blazed through twilight gloom,
I heeded not their summons;

happy time
It was indeed for all of us-

for me
It was a time of rapture! Clear and loud
The village clock tolled six- I wheeled about,

Proud and exulting like an untried horse
That cares not for his home. All shod with steel,

We hissed along the polished ice in games -Wordsworth

  1. Susan,
    Loved this post!! It will be a long Winter here so it is better to celebrate it!!

    Thanks so much for your visits!!


  2. Aaahhh...Wordsworth! Such a beautiful post. I like to linger in winter too and slowly put away my decorations. Packing up too quickly make me feel as though Christmas were a tragedy instead of an old friend to whom I hate to bid farewell!

  3. Susan, your Winter décor is just darling! Love the little banner. I have some of those rub ons. Think I will have to copy. Maybe because I've started putting some of my Winter away in a couple months I'll make a Spring one. My bedroom and upstairs bath will remain Winter decorated for another month. We've still got a while to go before Spring. Why not enjoy it? Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  4. Hi there! First time at your cute blog! I love all the pretty vintage things! Such a sweet garland you made too! :) Wishing you a lovely weekend! xx Holly

  5. Hi Susan, just hopping by to let you know that I will be featuring you at SYC later today.

  6. I'm enjoying winter, I just wish for snow!
