I love the scene in Le Divorce – discussing how French women use scarves
gloves and hats. We don boots.
In the home we may throw a blanket or a quilt
over ourselves as we sit for a cup of tea or to read a book.
We light fires to warm the room.
We prepare soups and stews that fill the home
with delicious fragrances that not only fill us
but also warm our spirits.
We see more in the winter. A walk in the woods
or in a park reveals what was once hidden beneath
leaves and brush.
Flocks of birds sweep over our lawns searching for
seeds and berries.
Winter is sometimes associated with the blues –
it is because of the lack of sunlight.
I am encouraged, inspired, restored and enraptured when I have quiet moments rereading Victoria Magazines.
Isn’t it wonderful how restored one feels no matter
the temperature outside if the sun is out and the
sky is a marvelous blue – we might stand outside, close our eyes
and drink in the brightness and warmth of the sun.
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall
Each season brings its own special magic into our lives.
Drink it in, rest in it – be restored. ~~~~~~~~~ A Return to Loveliness is a blog party I host each Tuesday celebrating our efforts to bring loveliness into our lives and homes and the influence Victoria Magazine has had on our lives.
