have a great weekend...


"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

See ya'll on Monday!

How I love that, savoring all those long stretches of quiet to yourself. So peaceful, and a lovely picture to reflect it too! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
(P.S. Guess what I'm doing the next break I get? Yup, running out for some Black Currant Lindt goodness! You inspired me!)

We had some "long savoring" where I grew up. Our 4 seasons were: winter, winter, winter, and summer!
