Winter Days...

While the north is getting pounded by snow it rained all weekend in Savannah. Grey cold and dreary... So I lit up all the Xmas lights in the dark day and it helped as a sort of lighthouse slash guiding light. 

As of lately being busy is part of the norm. Like the Summer seasons my nights are shorter and my days so much longer. I am embracing all of it with much patience and tolerance for all things I can't control. Many big emotions that at times do not translate into paragraphs. I have been meaning to condense all these thoughts that are written in random pieces of papers and  in bits of voice recorded memos on my phone so I can jot them here.

The weather could not hindered date night plans these days date night also incorporates a bit of work but it is a dance that we are learning to quickly follow as we all grow, change and evolve in our family dynamics. I went out and witnessed another country hoedown. I am far away from my Island's holiday music but this music also comes from the mountains. The Guiro has been replaced by a washboard and  El Cuatro has been replaced by a Banjo but nonetheless it is folk music. Music written, performed and played by and for the people. 

I also found Waldo while I was out...

I also had a visit with Santa...

Next up is cleaning and clearing... I will be celebrating the Winter Solstice at the house with some friends will be making some of my Puerto Rican Egg Nog will make sure to snap a few pictures.

Until then go ahead and try some...

Happy Monday...
