Welcome back to my blog after the holiday break. I hope you all had a lovely end of 2017.
Now that we have started a new year, it is also time for one of my regular features – it's time to take a peek at another unusual house, and wonder what stories it could tell if the walls could talk. In honor of the cold weather chilling most of the country right now, I chose a corresponding winter scene.
This picture, once I get past the cold sensation it produces, raises all sorts of questions for me. How does one prepare for winter in a place where the snow nearly covers the house? If the owners can leave the house, how do they get around? And on those long days when they can’t leave the house, what do they do all day? Although, I imagine staying warm and fed could consume all available time if this house is as isolated as it appears.
The possibility of children also living in this house raises even more questions. What to the children do on snowy days like this? Do they manage to go outside and burn off energy sledding or with snowball fights? Or are they stuck inside, bouncing off the walls all day? Poor parents, if that is the case.
If these walls could talk, I think they would simply release a heavy sigh and wish for warmer weather. Just like the rest of us. What do you think?
I write historical fiction, and I invite you to share the journey to published author with me.
