Dark and Cold

I sit here in the dark.
Been up for hours.
Jodie and Maddy woke up early.
I've had coffee and checked things.
Just now getting a bit light out.
Been a dark and windy morning so far.
Was thinking that the holidays are over.
The outdoor lights will come down.
Been too cold and wet to do them.
A few colors on the plants 
lining the sort of long driveway.
This month is cold.
An in between one.
I look toward the next.
Knowing that the warmth
will arrive after that.
I'm just not a cold lover.
I like the light.
Be it from the sun
or holiday lights.

Enjoy your weekend.

We like cold days and long nights, but that's because our summers seem to last forever.

Lovely photo today! Spring and light will come soon. Happy Rubber Ducky Day!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
