first days at home
It's been terribly, terribly cold on our rather tiny island of late.
Sea smoke has become a daily event.
I see it now hovering over the frigid Atlantic
as I look out the window toward town.
Alexa tells me it is 0 degrees and isn't expected to get much warmer.
Tucker has found a nice cozy napping spot
on the rocking chair in the sunny kitchen window.
I love having a rocking chair in the kitchen.
A perfect spot to sit with a cup of tea and a good cookbook,
or comfort a sweet little child,
or rest your soul for a bit while waiting for a stew to come to a simmer.
It doesn't always have to be a grand redecorating that makes your home pretty.
Often, it's just noticing the morning sunlight
shining through a kitchen window.
