Wintertime

    

via pinterest


          Outside, the snow is gently falling.  The winter precipitation slowly glides down, floating through the air, and softly landing on the ground which is covered with it already.  The crisp and cool wind contrasts with the warm, mellow interior of the house.  The wind picks up speed, dancing in and out of the tress in the forest.  The woodland is barely visible, coated with the coming of night as darkness encloses around it.  The trees in the woods are bare, with no leaves shrouding them as they had the previous months.  They are desolate and lonely, standing by as the flurries drop on them.  The overcast skies are gloomy and gray, with no foreseeable sunshine coming.  There are no birds fluttering around as in the spring; rather, they are all holed up in the comfort of their nests. The isolated trees stand straight, framing the horizon with their branches extended.  However, despite all these facts, the scenery holds a special beauty about it.  There is a silent, mysterious attractiveness that could hold one's rapt attention for hours on end.


This piece was actually an assignment, but it works :) What do you all think of the new design? I think we can all agree the last one needed an upgrade, and while I can't exactly say this one is the most wintry and cozy design ever, I think it works..... I had planned for it to be a regular and solid black + white design, but the orange found it's way in there somehow.  Also, did you all have a good Christmas?  I wasn't able to get a post up on that day itself, but I hope you all had a great day unwrapping presents and the usual whatnot.  Mine was pretty average, but I guess that's how it goes.  Have a wonderful day and I'll try to get another post up before 2015.... *faints* 
God bless 
Keep smiling ♥
Autumn

  1. Oh my goodness!! You are a such a talented writer!! I absolutely love your work. You just earned a new follower. :) I was wondering if you do free blog designs and if you have a site for your designs. :)

    Never stop doing what you love.

      Well, I used to, and I still would, except I don't exactly have the time. However, sometimes I do, and if someone asked me for one, I would do it for them. The link to my page is this ---> http://autumnreadsandwritesallday.blogspot.com/p/designs.html

      Okay, I was just curious. Sometimes I debate about having somebody design my blog; it's nice to know that you do it. :)

    2. I so know what you mean! I went out with some friends a last weekend and we were out almost all day. I was more tired than the time we spent 2 hours rollerblading. ;) I've been pretty good! I had a wacky allergic reaction a few nights ago to some friends dogs. I had heavy breathing and was feeling quite sick. :P Thankfully, I took some chamomile tea and felt much better! It is very strange to have Christmas done. Usually whenever I go out I had to get something for someone. lol! I kinda feel free now. ;) Are you back to school yet, or do you have until the 5th of January? That's when I get back into the swing of things. :)

    3. Wow, sounds rather hectic indeed :) 2 hours?? Must've been a tiring kind of fun :P Oh, glad you're feeling better. Sure that didn't feel too good :D
      Yeah, it really is. There's like nothing really to look forward to, other than New Years, which is in two days. *sigh* the most wonderful time of the year's gone, but anytime of the year can be the best, albeit we have a good attitude ;PI have till the 5th... *whoops* saw on G+ you finished your course, congrats!

    4. Yes! I was exhausted for 2-3 days after. lol! What are you doing for New Years eve? Will you stay up until midnight? I will. My family and I are going to play games and have some root beer floats. :) Thanks Autumn! It was really great. I can't wait to get back into school and learning more about becoming a doula soon. Today is the last day of 2014! Yike! :D

    5. hehe, yeah :) Yeah, I'll be staying up till Midnight too... but I'm not exactly sure what we'll be doing.. maybe we should play some games. I literally haven't sat down and played a good old game for a long LONG time. Welcome :) I'm sure it'll be exciting! AAAAHHHH. This is really monumental....
