Frosty morning at Quarter Deck Cottage.
The peace and quiet is restorative and so soothing.
Time to slow down, reflect and take stock of all our blessings.
time to take a moment and be grateful.
Savouring the stillness and listening to what is in our heart...
taking notes and planning
perhaps trying something new.
Perfect time for hunkering down with a great book.
I was sad when I finished this book as I did not want my session at Parisian Charm School to end!
Jamie and I will be collaborating on a blog post about her newest book
which BTW I totally LOVE!
Clouds lifting and the sun is starting to make an appearance...
hope to get out for a walk in the crisp air.
Time to go for a walk...
a gentle breeze
the gulls are swooping and diving into the Salish Sea.
Serene and pristine Peter Cove.
A snug little bay with mooring buoys for the boats of the summer residents.
Kelp and driftwood wash up on the beaches after the storms.
The glorious beauty of Mother Nature at every turn...
so grateful to be alive and in this magical place.
Watching the ferries come and go...
the gentle ebb and flow of the tides
the rhythm that is humming just outside our door.
Our tray on the coffee table with a simple sea inspired collection
shells from the beaches
a few feathers gathered on our walks
the piece of coral a gift from a dear friend
a lavender soy candle made on the island.
The dining room table dressed in a similar fashion.
A book found in the used section of the Island Book Shop...
a new day dawns
there will be ferries to watch
ravens will be cawing
with a mug of hot coffee in hand
my thoughts stray
as I watch the waves on The Salish Sea beyond our deck.
Views from the sofa...
change as the morning light moves across the Salish Sea
illuminating the trees and valleys
of Vancouver Island...
Hope that you are safe and snug in your part of the world.
