Snow is falling outside, Christmas lights are twinkling on the tree, and stew is simmering on the stove. 

 My feet are snug in warm new slippers and propped up on the ottoman. I am watching whatever happens to come on the TV channel I am tuned into and ignoring the dirty foot prints that mar the hardwood floor.

There is work to be done but my sofa is comfortable and the blanket my son gave me for my birthday is keeping me snug and warm.

I am trying not to think about the future and the changes coming to my little household in 2013. 

I am trying to "just be". 

I will worry about housework, the future, and life a little later. 

For now I will  just sit and enjoy the snow falling outside my window.

"just be"

I love that Amy. I need to concentrate on that more and even though I lay in bed alot, I do it worrying about some thing or another. I want to practice "just being"

Lovely sentiment. Life is all about seasons. I love your idea of being present in the moments. I fill my life with too much busy and I need to just BE more often!
