simple things - January...

As you will know, today Christina is hosting yet another Simple Things Day. This time for each blogger who joins in she is donating a dollar,(up to £250) to a charity helping the survivors of Haiti.

My simple things are all about appreciating what January has to offer...simple

* The delights of unexpected snow
* Having an excuse to stay snuggled under the duvet
* New beginnings and the stirring of creativity again - ( oh I have so many ideas!)
* Enjoying simple tasks like making bread and soup
* Celebrating the lengthening of days
* Taking the time to pause and reflect...
Head across here to see other bloggers and their 'simple things'.

Hi, Jac. Stopping by to visit today in the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for your list. This project has been truly amazing! I, too, like you enjoy a good snow day ~ the kind that gives the kids a surprise day off of school, lunches with soup and grilled cheese, snacks with graham crackers and hot chocolate. All this in between snow fun outside, movies inside. Nice.

I love your photos...and your list. It made me feel so peaceful.

I especially like: "the stirrings of creativity again" and "Celebrating the lengthening of days".

I'm looking forward to taking a longer look at your blog. Thanks!
