No television, no phone and a little light filtering in the windows are always a good way to begin.
I like to start with a big glass of water and little music.
Next I will scamper around a bit grabbing things for that block of time that I will need.
Cooking, sewing, painting,reading, photograph taking or maybe just a walk getting the things needed all laid out.
When everything is ready it makes that time feel prepared even if you just grabbed it and piled it up ready to start.
Lately I chose reading, puzzle making, cookie baking, decorating for the holidays as the things things I really wanted to do with the me time.
It felt great to do all those peaceful things but man oh man do I miss my camera and how I felt after a long walk.
I am writing all this down to remind myself to spend more creative time this year with my camera and with my feet on the ground again.
I am sharing my rambling with you just in case you want to join me in some "you" time and share how you get ready to be creative or what you plan to do.
Taking that time to see the world and share the beauty seems to be part of me now like painting used to be.
I believe we all should treat ourselves to not just working and routine have to do tasks this year but also creative "us" time.
Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. - Veronica A. Shoffstall
This year is balmy and warm, I know it will come soon enough.
Saturday morning I was sure we would be closed.
The snow had fallen and over night we had 9 or 10 inches.
This is a shot taken from my 15 mile an hour drive along Hwy 94 to Hwy 40 heading to Chesterfield
(Some texture added for the fun of it)
This photo with textures is what I did while the spies got each other. Photo taken earlier this year of course when it was green.

Ethan Hunt: You're free now. Where will you go?
Ilsa Faust: I don't know. I've done my part.
Ethan Hunt: Yeah.
Luther Stickell: Ethan, we got to go!
Ilsa Faust: [Ethan and Ilsa embrace] You'd better hurry now.
Ethan Hunt: Good luck.
Ilsa Faust: You know how to find me.
No snow yet it looks a lot like this right now. Barren with grey's and browns everywhere. Resharing one of mine from about a year or so ago.
“What can I say, I'm a sucker for abandoned stuff, misplaced stuff, forgotten stuff, any old stuff which despite the light of progress and all that, still vanishes every day like shadows at noon, goings unheralded, passings unourned, well.”
