today is sooooo
the kind of grey that hurts the eyes
the sharp grey of winter
the dark stripes of the naked branches weaving the cold wind together
the lights have to be turned on earlier
the night lights don't actually go out on days like this..
cups of tea are welcome to warm the hands if they stay still too long
but autumn isn't that far away yet
we still have the colours around
and a little sun to bring a smile
and look, a pineapple as well
it has actually turned into a real live tiny version of itself
and it smells divine
I wonder if I plant the top
will it grow on??
here and there the colours of the coming season are creeping in.
and as always
there's the yarn and various needles and hooks to keep us occupied
on these grey grey days
and it'll be Solstice soon
so the light will start to come back
