Confronting January

The view from our sunroom window is frigid–8 inches of snow and -14 degrees F. But at least it is outside our window. Our appointments and must do list have been postponed or cancelled and we have a few days to do little but hibernate.

After Christmas, we put up a new print of autumn blaze maples on the east wall. I am adding touches of pomegranate throughout the great room but the sunroom has stronger elements. It is a warm and cheerful place to look at the outside world, wrapped in a bright red throw.
