Flowers and a Snowstorm


The snow began to fall right after 1 p.m., as predicted by weather people.

It snowed steadily all day yesterday.

On snow days, it's perfectly delightful to stay home where it's warm and cozy.


The flowers my daughter gave to me last week are still quite beautiful.

One day, I was able to snap a few photos of them filled with afternoon sun.


When the storms of life hit us, where can we go for warmth and comfort?

Where can we find beauty, like the flowers, when problems, instead of snow, chill us?


For me, the greatest comfort is found in the Lord, and from dear blog peeps, from some family members, and friends.


There is also comfort in living in the moment, decorating for Valentine's Day, and hunkering down under a warm cover while watching a movie.

WHAT BRINGS YOU COMFORT?

Communing with Mother Nature


One surefire guarantee of feeling better is to get up and out into Mother Nature.

My daughter recently reminded me of that fact.


So off to our favorite, now frozen lake hubs and I went.

The bare trees looked quite stark against a slate gray sky.


Ice fishermen were out on the frozen surface of the lake, doing something I'd never, ever do.


They looked like little stick figures out there on the frozen surface, dipping their lines into holes in the ice that led to the pitch black water below.



By the time we finished with our little walk, we both felt better----momentarily rejuvenated.

Thanks, Mother Nature!

Hearts and Flowers


The last remnants of Christmas, 2019, are just about packed away. 



Many have already been hauled, one step at a time, up to the attic.

 
So now, it's time for hearts and flowers------Valentine's Day pretties.

Certainly, love should be celebrated 365 days a year, not just on one day.

Still, Valentine's Day decor is fun and pretty.

The front door holds a sparkling red heart, shown at top of post, with another heart in the middle.

Gold tin hearts hang on the porch wall to the left and the right of the front door.




Red glass is showing up in the windows.



Heart-covered placemats grace the kitchen table. 



Hearts and flowers are everywhere around here.




WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DO YOU LOVE ABOUT VALENTINE'S DAY?
