Creative attempt at writing third person. I thought I would try it out.

The Cabin in The Woods

Wind whistled around her cabin, as she set with her glasses propped upon her nose precariously. Lips set in a productive manner as she progressed slowly, but surely sewing one of her quilts together. The fire in the hearth crackled merrily with ever so often a piece of wood popped making a sharp sound as the quietness of the day proceeded to occur.
The snow outside swirled downward, hitting the ground softly, piling up, she knew, at the old wooden front door. .the small window pane let the light fall right in front of her so she could catch any rays of the sun that shone from the sky above. Despite the snow falling profusely down at times the sun managed to break through the cloudy skies.
It was early afternoon and she sat as usual by the hearth, a small piece quilt in her lap. The soft, comfortable arm chair she sat in close by the fire so she could stay warm and snug.
She spared a thought and wondered if Nell was warm enough in the barn. Good thing her son Jeb had built that sheltered cross walk to the barn last time he had come home.
When she had been younger it had not bothered her so much to get out in the cold. But with age had come the aches and pains of the living she had done.
She remembered a time when she was young when taking a stumble in the snow had not slowed brought down. Oh those were the days of my youth she thought with a reminiscent smile.

A Hunting They Will Go

For all their hunting through the woods, no body could find her. She had hidden from preying eyes all who sought her. Unless someone happens upon her refuge that might need her help.
For she was a Mage and hid from the world. Only showing herself to those who needed her. And there was always someone out there that found their way into her woods.
