tickles my toes & fancy––
through my window, snow
Dreams of sun and sand sustain me through these times of bitter cold and endless gloom. The photo above was taken some summers ago where the Au Train river spills gently into Lake Superior, creating a warm pool perfect for swimming, in contrast to the chilly waters of the big lake. Sigh... it fills my soul. Do you hear the gulls?
I've been MIA for awhile, I know. The holidays were a strain, and were followed by a nice, persistent stomach virus that we just seemed to keep passing around and around. Blehh. I didn't think it would ever end, but thankfully we all seem to finally be over it. I just want to throw open the windows and breathe in fresh air, and let it flow through the house. Alas, with temps in the teens and single digits, I'll keep dreaming of warm sunshine and spring breezes for awhile, yet.
What do you think of the new blog attire? The company hosting my old background changed servers. In theory, all I had to do was grab the new code, plug it in and I'd be good to go. Nothing's ever as simple as it seems, though. I discovered that my old background was apparently 'retired', forcing me to find something new, which in turn necessitated an upgrade, and, of course, a new banner, etc., etc. So, here we are. For now, at least. I'm still considering... At least it pried me out of my winter rut and back into some semblance of creativity, and that's always a good thing. And I do love the colors. Fresh, like that spring breeze that keeps flirting at the edge of my dreams.
I apologize for my late offering to Haiku My Heart Friday, but I've spent the last two days entrenched in the blog remodel. I didn't want to post a brand new haiku on a half-dressed blog, after all. :)
Peace (and warmth!) to hearth and soul.
