Enjoying the quiet indoor days of winter


January makes me feel settled in, not having to go anywhere on weekends. Happy all the holiday hustle bustle is over...time to create. I am working on my international collage exchange series and a journal book for me. I am really into this round of collages! I have no desire to be around people right now so the cold air helps that problem. I am trying to lighten up on my colors too. Love to read alot this time of year too...loving Pat Conroys books. My favorite writers can make me feel I am right where to book takes place...the smells and sounds...ahh. I especially like how he writes about the bays and ocean, since I can't be there. How can anyone live where there is no tides table in their daily paper?
