#1. I took this photo on the afternoon after we spent the day digging out from our blizzard, which I told you about in THIS post. I intended to capture a normal scene, and to show how relaxed and happy Maggie was ... then I noticed my husband's socks. He absolutely IS my Superman.
#2. I recently had a meeting with the folks at Hollywood Cemetery. After we finished, I drove through the cemetery to check on a few things. When I saw this little angel with her Santa hat, I had to stop and take her picture.
#3. I have had my '66 Mustang since 2002. In all this time, it has had a radio but no speakers. As a present to myself, I ordered after-market kick panels with speakers in them. I also ordered a new dashboard speaker, which I will install when the weather is warmer. Now that the little Pony has music, it's going to be good to have something besides the voices in my head to listen to while I'm driving.
#4. I showed you my Amaryllis sprouts in THIS post from December. Those little sprouts grew tall and strong, and I had beautiful red flowers on my kitchen windowsill for weeks.
I also have an Iron Cross Begonia, an Orchid, and a pot of Lycoris Aurea.
#5. I'm still working hard to declutter, downsize, and organize around here. In 2015, we donated 374 useful items to charity, just over one item per day, and threw out lord-only-knows-how-many useless things. My goal for 2016 is to double this number and to donate TWO items per day this year. So far, with five trips to the charity shop as of today, day #48, 199 items are out of the house and on their way to new homes. All of this effort really makes a difference in how this place looks and functions.
#6. Part of my winter routine is to avoid the cold and spend time sewing. I have a few projects in the works ... I will show them to you later. For now, I want you to see the sweet critter who keeps me company while I sew.
Alice loves her fluffy bed, on the windowsill by the radiator, with a tree full of birds to watch outside the window.
