Let The Sun Shine In!

Despite the fact that it is still very much winter in our neck of the woods, the sun this past weekend was beyond glorious!

Combined with the change to the clocks for daylight savings time and this is one happy blogger!

Finding A Little Summer Amidst The Snow

As you know, we got a whopper of a storm last week, and another on Thursday, which means we will not see grass for quite some time. 

Le sigh. 

However, I figured out a way to bring a little summer into these winter days - and it was easy peasy, my favorite!

Winter Storm Riley

We had quite the Nor'easter this past weekend! Winter Storm Riley settled over the mountain top and dumped 3+ FEET of snow!

The entire mountain top as well as many neighboring villages were without power for 30+ hours, and some areas are still waiting for power to be restored.

Early Spring Garden Chores

I know I said spring is a long way off on the mountain top. Yet, as I see so many blog friends posting photos of spring shrubs in bloom in their areas, I can't help but start to get excited to spend some time outdoors in my garden, taking care of my spring gardening chores.

Finding My Way To Peace

My friend Brenda over at Cozy Little House posted today about how she conquered her fears to get to a better place in her life. 

She really got me thinking. 

I often post about the peace that I have in my little mountain top home, and how happy I am living here. 

But many of you are newer readers and don't know how that peace came to be.

Embracing Winter On The MountainTop

All over blogland and on Instagram I'm seeing lovely photos of spring flowers and posts about spring dreams. 

Up here on the Mountain Top, I know we've got a good two months or more left of winter, so there's really no point in getting too excited about spring just yet!

The best thing to do is to settle in and embrace what's left of winter. 

I mean, really - what else can you do?

One Of The Ways I Combat Daily Stress

I've always been a big fan of Aromatherapy. It started many years ago, when my children were babies and I went through one of the most stressful times in my life. 

That's a story for another day, but suffice it to say, I used Aromatherapy regularly as one of the things that got me through that terrible time.  Candles, essential oils, linen mists, body sprays and name it, if it was scented with essential oils, I used it.  It's amazing how a particular scent can lift your mood or calm your mind.

Oh, and then there was wine. That helped, too.
