Winter Afternoon

"As I write, snow is falling outside my Maine window, and indoors all around me half a hundred garden catalogues are in bloom."    -Katharine S. White 


"Winter is the time for comfort - it is the time for home."  -Edith Sitwell

“Under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ... a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.  And the anticipation nurtures our dream.”-   Barbara Winkler

"Winter is the time of promise because there is so little to do - or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so."   -Stanley Crawford 

"Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour."   - John Boswell
"February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March."
-   Dr. J.R. Stockton

Hi Cheryl....thanks for reading and following my Journey with Teal blog. I know that you understand full well what I have been battling with. I was sorry to see that Nancy's battle ended....she and I are about the same age.
I hope you are having a beautiful weekend. And Happy Valentine's Day!

Your post reminds me how I will miss winter when it's gone. I do love cuddling near our fireplace with my soft blanket, wearing my warm socks, drinking a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, and reading a good book or my many blogs. Then, of course, I am also reminded how hot the summer will be!
