There's a pinkish hue to an otherwise grey sky. The trees seem to embrace their nakedness and for a moment I wish I could do the same.
A cardinal sings for their food, a welcome splash of color in this monotone world.
Opening the door the cold hits me like a sledge hammer, momentarily taking my breath away. The dog enters unfazed bringing the cold of the outside in. I shudder as I feel her ice cold ears. I'm quick to retreat to the comfort of the sofa and a warm blanket that awaits me there.
I need to venture out today, to feel winter's rawness on my skin but for now I'm going to steal more minutes inside, in the warmth, in the comfort of my home.
