Hello again dear blog, I haven't written in a while, really busy, and really not much that was interesting either. So today I stayed inside most of the day other then when I took the dogs outside, and shoveled the snow. Yes, I said SNOW!!!! I am soo excited for it, all day yesterday it was sleeting, and I mean all day, the roads were bad, the skies were gray, and most were stuck at home since all of us do not drive big SUV's with four wheel drive. I enjoyed the tattering of the ice on the windows, it was a change from the sounds of rain weve had recently. The weather system is totally out of whack, just a few days ago it was 78 degrees here, in the middle of March!! I have already said that I like the cold, and I truly do adore snow. Its soo peaceful, especially if you wake up early enough and peek out the window or go outside, the usual sounds of cars and trucks dissipate,and the silence of snow surrounds you. Ahhh, well that was fun to type, it brought back fond memories of when we use to get at least 12 inches, maybe even a couple of feet, but now we only get about 4 inches every storm. I believe we got about 6 inches, some has melted, but its still there. Anways so off the snow topic, lol, I didn't do much,even though Saturday is my typical laundry day, I pretty much just drank tea, watched romantic comedies and read a few of my favorite magazines and books. The tea cup and saucer above are some Fireking jadite pieces I picked up a few weeks ago at an antique mall, oh how I do love it, and I also love the red rose emblem on the tea bag.
I also found some time to go through a few of my cluttered craft drawers, and thought I would share some of my pretty papers with you. This week I finally put away the winter and Christmas decorations that were still up and put out my spring decor. I am excited for spring, and I cant wait to plant the many flowers that await to be potted or planted, that are currently enjoying the view on my bay window seat. I wouldn't mind being them today, constantly peering out at the beautiful sight of the wintery abundance casting bright light all over the neighborhood! Wishing you a Happy St. Patricks day with warmth and inspiration on such a cold day!
