Six word Saturday
We had snow on the night of 25th December but it was gone within 48 hours. It snowed for the sake of white Christmas. Many of us were missing snow even the people who don’t ski.
On the first day of 2021 we enjoyed our usual hike but there was no snow just some frost.
Fortunately we had good snow on Saturday morning. The trees covered with snow were beuatiful. The temperature was perfect for a leisure walk and a visit to our local cafe. They serve good carrot cake and coffee. The cafe visit didn’t happen as it was closed for Christmas. It may sound odd but yes, in this town the restaurant, the cafe and the bar all were closed from 21st December til 3rd of January. The employees were given Christmas break to be with their families.
It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it ~ Dale Carnegie
Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties ~ Helen Keller
Our walk was concluded with a piece of rum soaked fruit and nut cake which I made for Christmas and a cup of hot chocolate.
Jo’s Monday Walk
The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life. ~
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life! ~Unknown
And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art. ~Maya Angelou
I haven’t been using my camera for a while. I am not aware of the exact reason but I guess recent circumstances didnn’t encourage me. Just yesterday evening I thought of taking it out on a walk. The change in routine got me engaged in a creative process and for sure lift my spirit.
Do something which helps you in changing your mood and brings a smile.
Stay safe and healthy.

I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.
“…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”~
Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.~
A friend of mine sent this to me which I found relevant for current situation around the world.
