Bluebirds Visiting

I was visited by these two bluebirds

the other day which was actually

the coldest days of the year so far.

The quality of these pictures is a

little different because they were

taken through the window from

inside the house. They both saw me

pushing the curtain back and taking

pictures but they were not afraid.

Instead they both turned themselves

around to watch me.

Such beautiful birds !

This Was Me Today !

I just don't deal with winter very well.
I took the day off today & all I wanted
to do was sleep. I think I had three
naps with my dogs in the morning
alone. I got myself up and showered
and did a few things & then watched
my soap and closed my eyes again .
My husband came home from work &
we talked for about half an hour and
then I was out again ! I need green ,
warm sunshine , & fresh air so I can
be energized again !!

Cute Covered Dishes For Your Goodies

I love cake stands and covered dishes as you

can see in the picture above.

While thrift shopping I found one lonely
topper from a cheese dome set. I brought
it home and used it with one of my
pretty pink & white luncheon plates.
Look how cute, an instant covered dish!
I couldn't help it. On my next thrifting trip
two more came home with me.

It's just so beautiful that it can be below
zero on one side of my window & yet

delicate blooms are alive and reaching

for the sun on the other side.

These are the same bunnies that I posted this
past summer looking out of my side window.
They are all full of beautiful , strong , & healthy
cactus plants that I started from one little one.

Minnie's New Bed

Minnie loves her new bed that Mummy got
for $2.00 at the Goodwill ..... it's always cute
when I come home and tell her that I got her
a present. She stands in front of me wagging her
tiny tail as fast as she can waiting for me to
show her what she got.
She's too cute ..... & don't feel bad for Java ,
he usually gets everything & he'll also be on
this little kitchen bed every time he gets a chance.
