Wow! Lots of big long posts lately. Sorry - that's how it goes sometimes.

Let's try a nice simple one.

It smells lovely in my house right now. Like cedar and fir trees and clove. Some of you think of that smell as Christmas-y, but actually that's just the smell of winter in the woods. (Commercialism at work.)

I love the smell of winter.

Especially when my woodstove is going, I'm all done piling up wood, and the house is nice and warm.

It's beautiful outside. The branches on the trees are so saturated with water from recent rain that they glisten constantly. The sky is one big halo for the forest, and it's gleaming eerily in the pensive way that only pre-dusk can pull off.

I am so blessed to be living this lovely woods life. I live in a utopia of green.

As soon as my camera gets here (I left it in portland last time and it's getting shipped back) I'll take some new pictures for you guys. You won't believe it.

    I can't wait for pictures! Can you post some scratch and sniff ones, please?

    I agree scratch n sniff would be nice, more so since I'm unable to get a Christmas tree this year. Has there been snowfall yet? Boy do I miss snow, unfortunately it's a rarity way down over here.
