Life, crafty stuff, long walks, thoughts, and little oddities.

Chocolate coins and angels

2 Comments

Storms lash the coast, whipping waves into a frenzy. Winds buffet the house, howling down chimney. Outside, the day has passed in a cloud of grey. Inside is colour, gold and red sparkling in the light. The Advent candle flames. Chocolate coins and lebkuchen sit cradled in a bowl. The ribbon from gift wrap lies on the table, reflecting the glow of the fire. Saint Nicholas crept through last night, leaving treats for all. The house is scented with spices and fruit. Tea in my mug, and sloe gin in the glass. The Saint’s Honey Cakes beckon invitingly, each one lovingly decorated. It seems the angels have some left over this year! Happy St Nicholas.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)
