Occasionally, very occasionally (like maybe once a week, sometimes not that often), we get some sunshine these days here in Kalispell. On this lovely sunny morning (or perhaps it was just a sunny moment), I went after my camera to photograph a few of the goings-on around here. A touch of Thanksgiving decoration, a bit of Christmas crafting, and some time of getting reacquainted with my knitting needles (which have been put away as we’ve lived in warm Florida, where woolens are not very helpful). Now that the weather has turned cold and frozen, our life has turned into one of being home, doing homeschool work and craft projects, enjoying blankets and movies, and looking forward to Christmas and a new year coming soon. I am often thinking of our return to sunny Florida, of my hope for a good year in 2013, and of the reuniting of our family, but I know that now is still a time to be patient, to be here right now and enjoy what there is to enjoy in this place and this moment. I’m working on it.
