Winter pleasures

We are in the greyest part of winter with no snow to speak of to create those beautiful blue shadows.  There are lovely combinations of browns and dark greens out there, but it is too cold to go out and really absorb them properly and for some reason photos don't seem to do them justice. So it is time to enjoy the light inside.

About 40 years ago I lugged this big old rocking chair from an apartment on the third floor of an old friend of my mother's who was moving.  I had it covered in dark red plushy fabric and have been enjoying it ever since.  It sits in my office-dressing-computer room now and is always there if I just need to sit down and rock a bit.  The sun is in this room all morning and keeps me happy as it creates patterns of light on everything it touches.
