Sliding into the Vortex

Sunday blog BaileyYou may wonder what the title of this post means. According to Abraham-Hicks, being in the vortex means “you’re at one with who you really are, you’re feeling great, and in vibrational alignment to your desires. It’s represented by feelings like enthusiasm, inspiration, passion, joy, and appreciation.” I am not specifically referring to that kind of vortex but rather I am talking about sliding into the vortex of winter and transitioning in a way that enables us to look at the positive elements of the cold months. And achieving that can be a challenge! What do you think of when you think of winter?  Perhaps you think of the cold, the ice, the darkness and maybe even sadness? Or do you think of cuddling by a warm fireplace, drinking hot chocolate, the smell of balsam, and cozy winter fashion. There is so much more fashion variety in the winter and this post will be the first in a series of posts on cozy winter fashion.  So which vortex will it be?  Cold and bleak; or cozy and chic.  Speaking of the cold, I tried to take some pictures outside today, but the wind was overwhelming and my eyes were streaming with tears.
This is a warm, cozy poncho style sweater and is perfect for this time of year and has autumn colors. In the winter, it can be worn as a sweater and would look cute layered over a dress with tall boots which I will explore later this season. I am wearing a burgundy camisole underneath and beige leggings.

My kitty, Aubrey, is the perfect photobomb. Here is an unabashed picture of her.

Bailey thinks it’s time to go for a walk, so let’s go for a walkabout round the neighborhood.

Rural Farm Oct 2018

I live in a rural area and here is a small farm at the end of my road. There is a yellow lab who lives here that my dog has a crush on. I will leave it at that.

Charming old farmhouse. I really love the barn and the porch.

The River Oct 2018

The Contoocook River. There is actually a golf course on the other side of the river.


I love these colorful bushes. Does anyone know what they are?

First Snow Oct 2018

I was just sitting on this bench last Sunday and feeling the warmth of the sun and wearing my pencil skirt and light jacket. Who is ready for snow? Anyone?
