Trying to stay warm, mostly. It's been so cold the past few days I find myself (and Otis and Riley) sitting by a warm fire in cozy blankets. I celebrated my birthday on Sunday and Galen bought me the most beautiful pink tulips! They remind me of spring and I yearn for springtime weather and working in the garden.
We had a bit of snow on the weekend and it was so pretty. Big fat snowflakes falling from the sky. It didn't last very long but it was nice to see. My youngest daughter, Amy, and Bruno and Esmé (our NY family) are coming down this weekend to visit. I can't wait to see my now five month old granddaughter, little Esmé! I haven't held her since she was a baby. We are all really looking forward to this.
So cleaning is on my list this week, along with some cooking and baking. Isn't it funny how the house gets a good cleaning when visitors come.
Have a good week, everyone!
