Grace's birthday flowers have blossomed and are cheering up the dining room.

It's cold outside and today, I'm enjoying a "Stay at Home" day. I've got my fuzzy socks on and an easy spaghetti dinner is on the menu. I hope your week is going well!

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.

Hi Kelli!

I love your poem because it sums up exactly how I feel about winter. In Ohio, we are experiencing light snow flurries and it is just beautiful! "Stay at home days are the best ones. Take care!

God Bless,
Hillary

Lovely flowers.
I think that poem really describes Winter time. It makes you want to snuggle down and hibernate in a way.

Lovely Flowers! Gladiolus, I think? My grandmother used to grow those by the dozens, but we're in Maine, so I think of those as only being around in summertime. I miss her and I thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures. What a lovely surprise for a cold wintry February day.
