this weekend, overnight, and with strength, she came. 
dear winter.  

"Summer is the matrix, the lie; winter is the truth.  It might be bitter, but at least its real.  At the same time, if sweet winter is the season of intimacy, scary winter is the season of the imagination.  By stripping down nature to her underwear, we can project our fantasies upon her." - Adam Gopnik

what we ate to keep warm: 

-butter buscuits and scrambled eggs 
-pear, chicken and bacon pie with thyme 
-cardomom orange loaf 
-winter lentil soup 
-almond yogurt waffles

  16. In Seattle, we are still in a season of crisp air and partially cloudy skys... fall is a nice break from the rain. But I do wish for snow like this. Unfortunately, with even just an inch of snow the entire city shuts down. It is a dream for a day...

    Stay warm.
