Slice of Life: Triumphing Over Darkness

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" 
to the Tuesday Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Dana, BethAnna, Kathleen, and Deb
                    for hosting this meeting place each Tuesday and nurturing our writing lives.

How to Brighten January's Dark Days

Use the extra darkness for cozy reading time.
Cook large pots of soup to accompany cozy reading time.
Keep the white lights burning on the deck for as long as you need them!

Watch happy movies.
Scroll through pics of spring color from last year.
Brighten the mantle with white lights, greenery, and cheery snowmen!

Be grateful your dark days don't include several feet of snow.
Savor the jewels on the trees!

Walk outside on the sunny days, the gray days, and even the rainy days.
Buy daffodils at the grocery store.
Celebrate the whimsical!


  1. Love the list, and the pics. I keep buying the bulbs, too! That last picture is priceless!
