Orange Juice and a Bagel

Yup!  That's what I just had for breakfast.  Well, I guess I should say brunch since it is nearly noon here.  I splurged when I picked up a few groceries the other day.  I bought a bottle of high pulp orange juice.  Oh how wonderful it is!  It is a wonderful memory of all the fresh squeezed orange juice Mom made when I was a kid.  So many things that I love are made from scratch and not from a box or jar.  I don't know about you all, but so many things taste very different from what I remember as a kid.  I miss the days of good cooking from my mother and grandmothers.

I Shouldn't Stay Up So Late!

This is definitely not the post I had intended for today.  Sometimes things just don't work out the way you plan but that's okay.  The only excuse I have is, I got sidetracked making some cards that I need to get in the mail.  So, here is a recent picture I took of my little plant forest.  The silly things are growing like crazy!  Don't they know it's winter!  Yes, they have names and yes, I do talk to my plants.  Hmmm?  You don't suppose that is the secret to my success, do you?  Left front is Lily, a peace lily.  Middle front is Lucky, a bamboo.  Right front is Phil, a philodendron.  The big guy hiding in the back is Treebeard, another philodendron.  I know, it's not a tree but I do love the Lord of the Rings movies!

Until next time...

My Snow Covered World

As promised, here are a few pictures I took the day after our snow storm.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day with blue skies and sunshine.  It really was a winter wonderland.  Short post (well, it is really given the fact I can write for hours) today as I'm busy making new cards and scheduling posts over at my stamping blog, Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe.  Busy days ahead.

This is the view from my craft studio window.  The clump of leaves you see tucked in the branches, is Scamper's (yes, I name the critters roaming around the yard) home.  He is the squirrel that keeps me entertained with his antics.  He's been tucked away for the past several days.  I don't blame him given it's snowing again today.  We've had another inch or so with wind and cold temps.  I'm staying in my little nest, too.  :-) 

The branch doesn't usually touch the sign so that should give you some idea of how heavy the snow is.  There were a lot of droopy branches around the grounds. 

This is the tree just out my back door.  It was so pretty with the sunshine making the snow glisten.

This evergreen is one street over just out my back door.  It looks so pretty with the snow decorating it's branches.  I think the snow is pretty but I'm so glad I don't have to be out and about in it.

It's a New Day! It's a New Year!

Hello everyone!  I'm revamping my blog and totally starting over.  I think it's time to get back to blogging every day and just sharing what random thoughts come to mind and give you a peek into my little corner of the world.

Here is a photo I took from my window when Scamper decided he needed to eat up the bird feed.  I thought he found a rather innovative way of getting what he wanted.  Tomorrow I'll show you what his home looks like after this weekend's snow storm.

So stay tuned for further developments!
