Well, the latest Nor’easter seems to have ended. Yesterday, I had snow and then some freezing rain. This morning, I have only rain. I suppose that means the last of the lovely white stuff will soon be gone until next winter, ushering in my "favorite" season of the year --- mud. Ugh!
This is my side yard, looking back toward the woods behind my home. I love the clean look of the snow just after it has fallen. It makes everything appear so fresh and renewed.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
