Getting there

We're having a quiet day. I'm feeling a lot better but not great. There has been rain and a lot of clouds and mist. The mountain is almost completely obscured by clouds. They descend quickly during a storm. Dark, wet days are unusual here but we enjoy them thoroughly, along with the sound of rain on the roof.

I went to the store alone yesterday, the first shopping I had done in over a week because of my illness. The Bear had done a little for me while I was very sick. But then he got sick too. I found strawberries for an unusually low price and had to have them. They are what you might expect from strawberries in January but I ate them happily.

I'm playing with fabric this afternoon. I have a project in mind for my dining room table. I'm thinking light and bright for spring.

The small Bears have been enjoying relatively warm temperatures and more outdoor play. We haven't felt much like playing with them so we've felt thankful for a walled backyard where they can play with moderate supervision.  They've enjoyed not wearing their winter coats for now. But they have been warned that coats will be back next week when it gets cold again.

Tonight is our Subtraction Mastery/Flu Survival Party. Goodness, have we earned it. Pizzas and ice cream are eagerly awaited and the Bear and I look forward to watching something mindless and silly later on.

Life is getting back to normal.


  1. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Was your party fun? The snow is melting here and it's a little milder. Easier to get around everywhere but not as pretty that's for sure. I like the shots of your mountain shrouded in cloud.

  2. Hi Gillian, thanks. We did have fun at our party; it was just the four of us but it was fun to do something different. I love "my" mountain! It changes so often, it's more interesting to me than TV some days. :)

  3. Hi Jennifer, nice to meet you! Your strawberry photo is so beautiful and gives me hope for summer.
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Hi Teresa! Thank you, I am so ready for summer too. Or at least spring! Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

  5. Oooooo - so many pretty fabrics!

  6. Hi Jenny! Yeah...I'm kind of an addict. This is just a small selection!


Thank you for leaving a comment. It's so good to hear from you! I don't always have time to reply but I try to answer questions when I can.
