{being still}


it is snowing 
my world is going to be
very cozy today

I do adore these kind of days
a day where one is forced to
 be still
what are you doing today?

Maria said...

I am still slowly sipping my second cuppa. It's freezing cold here in the northeast... so we will be inside.
Today, Chris and I will put away some Christmas things. I will also send out a few notecards and thank you's - a perfect day for being a home- body!
Enjoy your sweet day of "stillness," Koralee... A quiet day is a treasure!

That is one yummy photo. Snow predicted tonight perhaps - we don't get it often so it is always a big deal. Hoping for a snowy walk when I wake up tomorrow a.m.

Very Pretty.... And Yummy... :) Are those marshmallows rolled in coconut flakes..??

Vintage Home said...

OH Koralee isn't it beautiful...a big fluffy feather filled comforter type of snow! We are enjoying it here ...Lattes & toast! & Cranberry orange white chocolate scones!...Your sweet cookies look like pillows of snow!...enjoy today Koralee...! Thanks for always inspiring!

Sher... said...

Hey sweet Koralee! Snow. Oh I love the snow! Making snow angels. Drinking hot chocolate afterwards. Feeling super cozy inside, and watching snow fall. You are so lucky!! Hope you enjoy your day of coziness...I will be thinking of you! I am cleaning today. It's 70 degrees, so I might even get a little gardening done.

You take care - have a wonderful weekend! xo

Marilyn said...

I will be attending a girl afternoon, making our annual collage. No snow here yet, but it is expected in the next day or two. I recently had a friend say she loved winter for a time to be quiet. I think tomorrow would be a good "be still" day. Look at magazines, read, sit by the fire, and maybe cut paper for something fun.

Roselie said...

I am staying inside making jewelry and drinking coffee. Staying cozy!

JBeaudetStudios said...

You have such a sunny, positive outlook on life Koralee! You even make snow sound good to me! Enjoy your cozy day:)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I am catching up and LOVING YOUR NEW PHOTO HERE!!!!!! You got snow? We got a dusting, but no complaints! A friend is coming over for soup, salad and poetry. Now how much better can that be? Only if KORALEE WAS COMING TOO! HUGS!!!!! Anita

Anne said...

Hope you enjoy your cosy snow day!:)

Madelief said...

Oh Koralee, Can you send some of that snow overhere? We would love to have some! I have been to see our garden today. The are already snowdrops and crocusses :-)

Happy weekend,

Martina said...

Sweet stillness is just what i need this weekend! No snow here, but peace and quiet and a bit of sunshine even. So pretty your picture, love it!

Martina said...

No snow here, but peace and quiet and a bit of sunshine - so nice! Love your picture and love stillness today - have a lovely day! xx

Mystica said...

I don't know whether I can ever cope with snow. 14 degrees is bad enough for me in Melbourne. I half freeze to death on those days! but you do make it sound very cozy which is a gift.

wendy said...

those ARE good days. (I want that cookie)
We have not had any new snow in awhile...perhaps this weekend.
What am I doing today....well, getting ready for good friends to come over for dinner, and FOOTBALL (tee,hee)

The Tablescaper said...

So wonderful to embrace the weather, rather than fighting what you can't change.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Seeing that cookie brings back memories - I used to love those when I was a kid but haven't had one in years. Today I've been stitching on denim trying to get a jacket done for the end of next week.

Mrs. Mobunny said...

I cleaned the washroom and sewed an apron. I'm trying to fix a better spot for my bobbin thread and regular spool thread by using our old kitchen cabinet doors and brand new nails. Fixing to make a salad and think about what's for lunch tomorrow!
No snow here! Sunny and beautiful.

Terra said...

It doesn't snow here where I live in California, but I do appreciate a cozy day prompted by heavy rain. A cozy day demands tea and a good book at my house.

Cozycomfycouch said...

oh so yummy! I love snow too. Today it was soooooooo cold! We are getting more snow on Monday! :D Have a lovely Sunday! :D

Sylvia said...

We finally have snow here in Toronto as well ...I have been craving for snow for so long ...to make everyting slow down and more quiet ...such a wonderful delicious photo !
To be still , isn' it awsome ...

Catherine said...

it is snowing here today too. I made turkey and lentil soup. But gosh, I could use one of your yummy looking cookies! I'm sure they have no calories in them ~ right??? ;)

Enjoy your cozy weekend Koralee!

Casa Bella said...

Snowing, huh? Nice that you decided to cozy up. It was super sunny here today but snow apparently will be coming in on Monday. Today, I organized my office and then went to the movies. Hope your weekend continues to be cozy and warm. Enjoy!

delia hornbook said...

Lynne said...

relishing in snow . . . noticing the quiet of the new fallen . . . refilling the bird feeders . . . again . . . looking up . . . watching . . . waiting . . . being still . . .

Jacqueline said...

KORALEE!!!!!!!!!

We too have snow. Not much, but just enough to be pretty and SLICK on the roads! THANK YOU for visiting and seeing my new creations. Red is great, but I see love in all colors! I hope they sell. They were fun to make and are so pretty under the right light so the sparkles can enchant! ARE YOU OFF TOMORROW? Oh yes, you typically have Mondays off, no? WE DO! IT IS MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY and I am relaxing!!! BISOUS MON AMIE! Anita

Tash said...

I'm enjoying my morning coffee in my warm little house while it's freezing and snowy outside. Stay warm and cozy dear friend, enjoy the stillness and these simple little moments. xx

ellie said...

No snow has stuck yet. But its cold. brrr..so that's why I'm here.

polkadotpeticoat said...

we are going to hit 20 above today .....I'm so excited after our 23 below last night......I went to a pampered chef party last night. I was amazed to see other hard up ladies looking for a night out that this party was quite a treat....and we had to pay for it...I will enjoy my new stone pan. My hubby laughed that we were desperate to get out of the house in those temps!!!! enjoy your tasty treat.....looks sooooooo good!

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

Oh, enjoy your sweet treats as well as the snow outside, sweet friend xoxoxoxoxo

Susan said...

I will put a log in the fireplace...gather my cozy blanket and a book {or my laptop (because I am hopelessly addicted to pinterest!!!)} and relax in front of my Christmas tree. (Yes, it's still up! It has held on to its needles and "cozies up" the living room so much my husband and I hate to take it down!) The only thing missing is one of those pretty cookies of yours! Warm wishes to you and yours, my friend!
Blessings!

B said...

I have spent the day dropping one child here and another there. A day as a taxi - I should start charging! Maybe a little snow here in the UK would slow life down a little?! Hugs, B x

Suz said...

Oh, so sweet! I love those warm and cozy colors. I am in South Dakota but will go home tomorrow for a week. Then we are off to look at another treatment for Jud. This is our last shot...but maybe the scientists will come up with something new and different. if I haven't said it recently, thank you so much for your support of me right now. Your kindness means the world!
Hugs,
Suz

annie said...

Oh I would love to be where it's snowing so hard that you had to say home...love the sound of that! Your sweet treat looks divine.

We STILL do not have snow here in NJ since our bizarre snowstorm on Halloween. By this time of the year we should have major accumulations...it IS FREEZING cold, though, so it's wonderful here by a roaring fire. What is that incredible dessert on your header, by the way??? Did you make that?? PLEASE share the recipe if you have! :)
Have a wonderful week~
Lisa

Those days when I am forced to be still are always full of blessings. It is good to be still and at home sometimes. It gets my world back on balance.
