Ever notice a pink glow to an evening ... and wherever you look - trees, fence, weeds, sky, snow --- there's a crimson cast over it all .... This painting is to honor that pink state ... the rosyness of the sunset lingering in the blush of nightfall ...
We had a wonderful time ... my son and I ... a good lunch, a quiet time of shared talk and lives suspected from obligations to simple 'be' in the company of someone we love. It's been a rough year for this young man and so spending a bit of quiet time to simply relax was an absolute gift.
I got home in time to fry some of our traditional 'snowflakes' (rosettes), and today I bake our family's version of cheesecake. A few more packages to wrap and we'll be ready for our celebration tomorrow.
It's been a quiet kind of getting ready for the season this year ... and I'm eternally grateful for that. Frenzy seems to be the password for life lately, and this slowing down for a while has been a blessing.
Stay warm ... and may your last days of preparation be slow enough to savor.
