Dreaming of Summer
On this cold January day, I can't seem to get warm, especially my feet. The room where my computer is, is very drafty. The cold air pours in and my feet are like ice cubes. I've tried several remedies, including extra socks, boots, plastic bags, blankets, space heaters, you name it. A friend told me to get a pair of Uggs (made in Australia) and lined with sheepskin. You are supposed to wear them without socks. They are very expensive, I am going to buy a pair when I have some extra money. By the time I have the money, it will probably be summer...rofl!
We even weather stripped around the door last year. The house is old and the frosty air still sneaks in, it's almost as if it is an entity and has a mind of its own. SO - I am dreaming of summer, sunny beaches, warm breezy air, the sound of seagulls and waves rolling in, and walking in the warm sand barefoot, looking for seashells, beach glass and whatever other treasure might be there for the taking. This picture, although it is a still life in a studio setting, helps me to conjure up those memories. Hopefully it will help you too.
