I went for a walk this evening, and took a quiet detour in Yarmouth Mountain Cemetery. It was especially lovely as the sun was starting to set. I love walking in a cemetery every now and then. Gravestones are sometimes the only tangible remnant from these lives lived years ago, and serves as a handy reminder that we'll all meet the same end sooner or later. Somehow, I find that reassuring rather than depressing. That said, I've heard news of several people I know being diagnosed with various cancers over the past few months, and my heart just aches for them and their families.

I've been quiet here on the blog lately, and I suppose it reflects what's been going on in my little world. Regular life has been busy with the usual daily duties and keeping everyone fed and clothed, and we've also dealt with the non-sale of our house (frustrating and disappointing - it's still for sale if you want to move to the most beautiful coastline in the world) and continuing renovations at our new old house (exciting and overwhelming). I've been trying to come up with some plans for how this little online space will evolve, and haven't made any definite decisions, but I know that it will be changing. So much of what I love to photograph and write about is centred on home, and without definite house plans in place, and much uncertainty about just exactly how and when everything will all work out, along with all of the time these house things have been taking, I've just not felt like putting all of that business out there. There will be some stellar before and after pictures in a few months, though. I also think that this winter has been long enough. I love me some snow and an afternoon sledding with the boys, and we had lots of fun this season, but I am officially ready for spring. I think that some warm, sunny days will bring some much-needed energy and motivation my way. Here's hoping!

  1. Beautiful photos! I'm so sorry the house developments aren't going to plan. Hang in there, it will all work out in the end. Looking forward to seeing what you decide to change about the blog.
