A friend, Jane Eyre, and fresh new snow

This week has been busy for me. Besides its being my week at Dad’s, I’ve had three health-related appointments, two informative webinars, an encouraging Skype call with my writing coach, and an exciting evening out. I so much appreciate the respite time and helpers I have which enabled me to do those things, and I really needed the evening out.

Somewhere in the mix of this week I’ve come to an understanding with myself regarding my writing. Something has changed. I’m moving forward baby step by baby step, and I’m a little excited about that. 🙂

On Friday we were blessed with a fresh bountiful snowfall which started at noon and ended around midnight. Heavy, wet snow, slippery to walk in and drive on, but oh so very pretty. A friend had invited me to a live streaming of a theatre production of Jane Eyre. Despite the steady snowfall which kept many people home we went to the little local theatre where we watched a live performance, streamed from Toronto, of Jany Eyre. OH. MY. GOSH! It is the first such event I’ve had the privilege to watch and it blew me away! I was immensely impressed by the talent and artistry of the actors, the way they made the audience understand the scenes and scene changes … it was amazing how they did it. I loved it! I’d read the book and watched the movie, but it was through this live performance I came to understand the story – and the character Jane Eyre – much better.

Now I want you to see again how beautiful our winters are here in Nova Scotia. My laments about this season are because of the frigid cold with wind, not usually because of the snow itself unless it’s several feet and I have to move it. 🙂  Refer to my post about last winter here. I love the look of fresh new snow.

Take a look at these photos taken at my dad’s this calm, peaceful morning. It was breathtaking beautiful! Our Canadian flag is on a tall flag pole, as viewed from an upstairs window. The ones showing red berries are of his mountain ash tree.  There’s one of his magnolia tree as seen through the diamond of his front door.
