It’s all about the seasonal changes . . .
Mother Nature adapts her wardrobe from month to month and lets us know her current mood through temperature, wind patterns, and precipitation levels. The colors constantly re-calibrate with brilliant flashes or subtle shading. Each season receives a new pallet and uses it to make different statements, sometimes modifying the scene daily or even hourly.
Aromas dance on the breeze – raindrops on dirt, just-cut grass, lilac bushes, or mountain pines. Inside, as soup simmers on the stove, bread bakes in the oven, or popcorn explodes into kernels, the smells start our digestive juices flowing in anticipation of luscious tastes.
In winter, snow crunches under our steps and the song of birds accompanies the much welcomed warmth of spring. A stream gurgles as it flows over pebbles and rocks in summer, and an autumn campfire crackles while marshmallows darken on the end of sticks.
Just like Mother Nature, we alter our clothing to fit the shifting environmental conditions, and move from swimming at the beach to cross-country skiing along a whitened trail.
So much variety. Never boring, always something new.
My blog is about the transformations, the traditions, the holidays, the food, and the activities. I want to share the joy I find in the journey and the many ways to make memories. We will travel to locations far and wide, entertain family and friends, and make fun decorating changes. We will review the books that explain the world and it’s wonders. The possibilities are limitless: recipes, photos, activities, collections, music, souvenirs, and conversations.
With every post, I will document the equipment and supplies needed. I will provide the instructions needed, and the sources for you to easily obtain what you need to duplicate the experience.
I hope you will share your insights. Your seasons and memories might be different, and I would love to hear about your corner of the world.
