    It's just a break in the trees where a couple fell down and we had to remove them, but covered in fresh snow on a quiet day, it's almost like it's a secret opening to another place. I may or may not have just recently read The Secret Garden. #winter #silence #trees #snow

    I have these bamboo (?) sticks and a peacock feather in a case in my living room. I'm actually surprised they've lasted as long as they have without kids using them to battle with.

    I've had the Nestle Tollhouse recipe memorized since I was... I'm not even sure, but a long time. Even if I try other cookies, this is always my favorite. #baking #cookies #chocolatechip #dessert

    Today's thankfulness prompt was to pick what texture I am thankful for. I chose soft blankets. #thankful #gratitude #texture #blankets

    Bye bye, ice. Hello school tomorrow. #winter #silence

  • kjpyoungblood

    My kids were supposed to go back to school today, after being off since the afternoon of Dec. 22. Last night, school was cancelled due to icy, snowy weather. I snuck in and turned off their alarm clock, but left my own on, hoping for some time alone with coffee and silence. I then woke up even earlier, around 5:15, after a dream whose images have quickly faded from my mind, but one that left me somehow with a lingering feeling of happiness. I've spent the time drinking coffee and writing in my journal. And also being slightly nervous my coffee would spill all over my comforter when I posed it for the picture. #morning #journaling #coffee #peaceful #reflecting

    I saw this gratitude challenge on Facebook and I like that it has something specific to think about. I printed it out and stuck it in my planner with that craft tape that's removable--can't remember what it's called. This way I can write down one thing each day and move it through the weeks and months. #gratitude #planner #introspection #faithlifereflections

    Time to use my planner I created for myself for 2018! #planner #planning #goals #reflections #lookingahead

    Good Morning! Yeah, that's frost on the inside of the door. #winter #subzero

    I actually took this in the middle of the day yesterday. but it looked like it needed to be more mysterious. #winter #trees #naturephotography #kankakeeriver #poophill

    Went sledding with the kids today at a place called Poop Hill. Yes, really. It's a huge, great sledding hill near the waste treatment plant and looks out over the river. It was beautiful, but I might be a tiny bit sore tomorrow.

    It has been really helpful to go through a printed copy of my manuscript in order to find what I need to change and fix. The problem is leaving it open on the kitchen table while baking cinnamon rolls. Yeast-water mixture and paper don't play nice together. #amwriting #revising #baking #fictionwriting #faithlifereflections

    Tree pic from Christmas Eve. I always hate taking down the decorations, not just because I like how pretty they are and how plain the room looks, but because they are a pain to take down and put away. I always intend to take them down around Epiphany, but sometimes they stay up longer. #christmas #christmaslights #12daysofchristmas

    These are fun decks of cards that the kids found in their stockings. #christmas #harrypotter #elf

    Good morning, Christmas Eve. #christmas @snow #illinoisweather #whitechristmas

    When you get the bright idea to crush up candy canes and put them in the frosting, you really need to make sure ALL the pieces are tiny enough so they don't clog your decorating tip... . Despite that mishap, we have "hot chocolate" cupcakes ready to deliver to the neighbors. . Dark chocolate cupcakes with a marshmallow-candy can swiss meringue buttercream. . #cupcakes #baking #christmas #chocolate

    Told the kids they had to come with us to a "meeting" we had to go to...and then we showed up at the movie theater. Decided I'd work on edits to my novel while waiting. #thelastjedi

    Today was recycling pickup, so I emptied the paper bin I keep by my desk. #cats #catsofinstagram #boxes
