Oh my, it’s almost over, February, that is.
It’s the calm before the storm.
February as always is full of surprises.
We had cold weather and then warm weather that made my heart so happy, alas it didn’t last. The cold came again, and we had freezing rain, snow, sleet and lots of just wet never-ending rain.
Tomorrow, we expect snow, sleet and whatever else they can throw at us.
Although I don’t care for winter weather, the sounds of sleet hitting the tin roof in the night is so enjoyable, to me.
Ting, ting, ting.
There was a birthday with a cake from the furry and feathered children and sweet little cards.
Flowers to add to my dried collection.
I had a medical procedure which hasn’t been very pleasant, and the anticipation of the event had my stomach in knots. I have great trust in my doctor, which I have had for many years, so no worries there. I was just nervous – that’s all. The anesthesiologist was funny and helped lighten the mood. Afterward, uncomfortable days spent quietly snuggling with That Cat. Mr. Cottage managed to find all the right old movies on TV for me to watch.
Other quiet pursuits including rummaging through the vintage button tin, finding just the right pieces to add to my mixed media collages. Hours of layering vintage advertising, music sheets, and pages from old dictionaries. There is a scent with all these old things, that makes me rather happy. I know kooky right?
A group of these collages are available for purchase at Sweet Art Emporium. So exciting to be a part of a new business in town.
Speaking of scents I haven’t moved forward with my candle and soap making – so many materials to acquire, and they aren’t inexpensive. However, I’m getting close to pouring my first candle batch…
I hope all is well in your part of the world. I miss talking with you all.
Next Post, I will be joining Sarah at Down By The Sea for her monthly garden tour. Sarah has the loveliest of blogs and beautiful gardens surround her home by the sea in Dorset, England. I’m thinking maybe some of you out there that love to garden, would care to join along too.
Miss Linda and Annie, I thought of you. Oh and of course, you too Connie.
Oh and Annie – I rooted some ivy – it’s rather sad-looking now, but we have high hopes.
That’s all for today.
