On a cold January day

Oh baby it's so cold around here! So cold, that I go about my chores 'round our little white cottage fully clad in my winter clothes.... zebra gloves and all...

Birds are nowhere to be seen these days

Life unfurls dark under the gray veil of late January, and it's easy to feel depressed by the lack of sunshine... I know I do.

On days like these, I just have to remember what the great Wizard Maddoc taught me a thousand years ago one day.

"Dear child, said the wizard, happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light".

So I am turning on as many lights as I can find... starting with those called "imagining", and "dreaming" and "laugh a lot".

Do you feel a need to turn on those special little lights in your life sometimes too?  Oh I know I do. If you want my advise, start by turning on the 'believe' light, followed by the "imagining" and onto "creating your own special little fairy tale" light, whenever you need it...

Don't ever let anyone tell you that fairy tales aren't real.  No sir!  I drink a potion made from magic beans every day, and it transports me right into Neverland!  It all has to do with your hand, and the way you stir your magic potion...

If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one, you may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colors suspended in the darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape, and the colors become vivid and clear... then, just in one heavenly moment you realize what you're seeing...  It's Peter Pan's Mermaids' Lagoon!  You might even see the surf and hear the mermaids singing, and if you want, you can even become one with the mermaids too!  As for me, oh I decide I'd rather be Wendy!

I hope you enjoyed (the clip) my little dream by the Mermaids' Lagoon ;).  Ok ok... enough non-sense for now!  Tomorrow, we're heading north to the house in the roses.  Of all seasons we had to choose the worse of winter to visit, of course.  Can you believe it!  You go figure! 

I'll be going by the house in the roses to check on my old friend, the garden and will come back and keep you posted on what I'll find there! Would you come by to say hello? Oh I do hope so! And if you live in the WA area, please do remain safe and warm during that awful winter storm that's to come tonight.  I hate winter. Do you love winter? 

See you soon my friend!




  1. I love the pictures. I so agree that we each need to realize that it's up to us to turn on the light rather than waiting for people or circumstances to do it for us. Thank you for adding your post to the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop!


  2. I love the cottage and your magical pictures! Oh yes, I do believe in fairy tales. We all need to believe, imagine, and create! Counting the days till Spring. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
