Winter

Tea & Honey Bread's Shutter Click and Chat: Winter

Last winter...

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."

~ Ruth Stout

LOVE the one of the snow in the air. I have tried, unsuccessfully, many times to get this shot...it is great :)

Hey Harriet said...

Interesting quote.

Is that Cammie snoozing on the chair? Cute!

Love this post. I love my quiet alone time. I'm usually with my computer or my furbabies, or both.

Dianne said...

lovely shots

I too appreciate the solitude and quiet of winter

Cammie is one comfy cat :)

Although winter is far from my favorite season there is something very true about that quote from Ruth Stout. We do tend to tuck in and just enjoy each other, smells from delicious cooked meals and the company of close friends & family at this time of year. Wish we had your woodstove, I bet it brings even more coziness to your space while watching the falling snow :)

I love your cozy little bloggy corner. It evokes a little Tasha Tudor.

Wonderfully snuggly quote.

It snowed here last night! It is all white and fluffy! Was really hard to run in this morning. I love your cozy pics!

That little nook you've got by the fire, with your furbaby, looks like just the spot to curl up with a good book!!

The snow is so beautiful...and your cat would "match" ours...same coloring. I love how they faithfully hang out where ever we are!!

It's perfect that you posted this, because I was just telling Kevin the other day that oddly enough, I kind of miss winter. There is such a calm and peace and quiet about it, and I love. I don't miss shoveling snow, or any of that... haha... but there's something about snow that's just beautiful.

The pictures are great. I love the snow but this reptile loves the snow from inside a warm home.

Beautiful weather outside - eve better, though, inside! Oh so warm and cozy! :)

Hildegarde said...

the top snow photo is such a romantic winter view, the stars above, the cozy fire and the cat, and you blogging : the whole picture is a warm creation.

Edi Style said...

Ah, bliss.

Please send snow.

how wonderfully warm & cosy this is!

That quote sums up quite well exactly why I love fall and winter so much. They give me a feeling of approval of my hermit like existence. :-)

Karine said...

I love that Stout quote about "belonging to yourself." That's something I need to savor!

Gorgeous photos! Cammie is all about it! *Pushes Cammie over and snuggles*
