I did a lot of driving this week---as always. My families were awkward ones this time around though so the week has seemed to drag on. Not my easiest lot of subjects. The weather was lovely though and the roads were dry and clear. Few deer dotted the fields and the sun shone most days. I grinned as I sped down the highway. Lots of cows to greet me as I drove those backroads this week too. Oh how I love them!
Field after field, now with its snow melted, smelled of Spring. I do not mind if more snow falls, but I also do not mind if the green stuff starts growing and the air warms. I will take either happily.
My sister and I have been planning a big ski weekend soon. I'm so excited to get away! A few weekends ago we went out with my Dad. Here is my cat looking over our gear before we left. :) I look forward to heading out again.
I decorated my mantel with re-used Christmas ornaments for this month of January. I liked all the bright color for the New Year. Quite soon it will be changed out for the colors of Valentine's Day. I love switching stuff out each month.
My happy little rocking chair. I've been cuddling up in places like this around the house as I motor through Jane Eyre. With the new movie coming out I am revisiting the story. I love it! (And Mr. Rochester in the movie is a fox! Mmm!) Notice my illuminated grapefruit plant. Once the Christmas tree came down we missed the glow, so I strung lights on this little guy to surprise my sister. :)
Speaking of that grapefruit, it has started to flower. Oy! It flowers twice a year and it makes me so allergic! The blooms have exploded on this plant, and even though my eyes itch and I can't stop sneezing they smell AMAZING. It produces this smell like Summer and rain and all that is good. So I have left the blossoms. :) I can't help it!
Those are a few tidbits from my strange week. I will now try to catch up on comments and go read what you all have been up to!
