Friday, April 1

do you not hear my trill of laughter?

This morning I gathered up four volumes of Mary Oliver poetry, some freshly brewed coffee frothy with milk in my favorite mug and brought it all back into bed with me. I had to improvise a nightstand since this is not my usual approach to the day-- but once the little white table was in place with my white ceramic mug safely on its surface I settled back against an armful of pillows and began to read. Interrupted only occasionally by the dogs who after a glance outside, realized this was definitely the place to be.

You see, this is what you would find out the window:

But you guys? I LOVE you all.

Bisous, E

P.S. yes, all these photos were taken this morning.

  1. Oh my goodness...I really do not know how you have survived this winter...and I would have stayed curled up in bed this morning. You are a MUCH better person than I to venture out in the cold and snow....those are some lucky lucky dogs! xoxo

  6. Wow this winter has really kept you turning inward this season, but I do believe it will be a grand Spring awakening! ;-)

  7. Hey there, I have just landed at your sweet space for the first time. I so enjoy the words and the photos ... being a huge puppy lover this last one just made me so happy to see! Nice to have found you
    By the way, we had more snow here yesterday, too!
