I've mentioned many times that one of the pleasures of living on an island, is being able to watch weather travel over us in ever changing patterns. Dramatic cloud-formations, fearsome gusts of wind, rain like curtains advancing over the sky, a theatre of the elements.
A vivid rainbow like this one, is a special treat to see, drawing the eye from everyday things to the sky.
I took the rainbow as a good omen, since I've been very drawn to its spectrum of prism colors lately (hair color idea?).
My favorite winter thing is to take small walks on the beach, collect things or just sit on a log and see who comes to visit.
That day, we saw not only the rainbow, but later, a seal, a kingfisher, a heron, a bold eagle, crows, seagulls...You can find four of these in pictured here.

New Favorite Scarf-gift from Nicole
It's getting to be too cold to take outfit shots of one's under layers. It makes me feel pretty silly to be standing in a T-shirt on the shore when there's frost on the ground.
Rainbows everywhere...I was excited to make this little necklace from some colored crystals. Jewelry-making has been really inspiring for me as the weather turns and the nights get longer. It's fun to finally have guilt-free craft and writing time. Not to mention reading. I've completed more books in the last month than all of spring and summer.
And, whenever it's not raining, a sunny day outdoors seems like a gift. Winter has an enjoyable balance of staying in and running around in the woods. In the summer I always feel guilty when I just want to stay in...
And then there were two. There's no end to exciting skies, it seems.
I hope you guys don't mind short, silly posts without much insight, it's the mood I'm in right now. Enjoying and exploring, not really mulling over as much. That, of course, is as changeable as the weather...
Hope your week is also full of amazing natural phenomenon! Peace, love and rainbows!
