We got up this morning and were putzing around for an hour and a half before we realized it had snowed overnight. I suppose this is what happens when you get up around 6 am and it’s still dark so you don’t open the blinds or the shades and you sit around and drink coffee and look at Instagram so that when you finally get up to open the blinds, you gasp and say “There’s snow on the ground!”
Not all that much fell, but it’s enough for a shovel, and more than in the photo at the top of the post, which was taken a few days ago. By the way, I’m not one who fusses with hiding the cord for the christmas lights. It would be hard to do with this particular tree, but really, I care not one whit if it shows. We all know it’s there, right?
This was a pre-lit tree for a number of years until the lights stopped working. Then I spent the better part of a day prying them off the branches and cursing while I was doing it because it was so hard to remove them. All because I didn’t want to shell out for another tree.
We watched Wonder Woman last night while eating molasses cookies. I know we’re rather late to this movie, but it was fabulous! Amazingly well done.
The current garden-in-the-kitchen. Actually, there’s more than this. And I moved the dieffenbachia to the sideboard in the living room because the edges of the leaves are getting brown and that is either because I’m not keeping the soil most enough (a possibility) or because of the cold air that blasts into the kitchen when we open the door (a distinct possibility.) So I moved it yesterday.
The flowers-to-be on the sansevieria are growing taller.
On the window sill, the fascinating string of pearls. I love this little succulent.
Since we’re both not working at the moment and Don is finally back home after several months of being on the road in 2017, we are basking in the opportunity to just be. It’s awfully nice and very welcome after a hectic and busy year.
What are you up to? Getting ready for the holidays?
