Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

sunny day

Mostly, life is gray,gray,gray around here in January. The occasional sunny day is such a treat!! Rose hips glow like semi-precious stones.
The apple tree shows off her moss-green velvet vest, and her dramatic shadows.
Yellow flowers in the window glow as if illuminated from the inside.
And everything is always better with a kitty.
A garden window is the perfect place for a kitty to lounge. Birds and squirrels offer constant entertainment, and a luxurious bath in the sunshine is such a sumptuous treat!

We live in a real suburb. No sidewalks on our street yet, so people are strolling along up and down the street itself, walking their dogs, walking their toddlers, pushing strollers and carrying babies in snugglee packs on chest or back. Some big-heartd dads even carry tykes on their shoulders, and everyone smiles. Two teens wandered by, holding hands. It's about fourty degrees out there, and they were in the mandatory t-shirts and baggy butt shorts. She had a stocking cap and fingerless mitts. He had a scarf. But they had their love to keep them warm. Actually, they were so sweet. Sunshine brings out all the happy people to smile and stretch in the light.

    Sounds like a nice, lazy Sunday afternoon in the 'burbs. Hey - is there a creepy old house with weird old guys and an inbred looking kid? That'd be an awesome movie!! LOL

    I heard that Portland may be in for some snow and THEN clear weather. Bundle up and stay warm.

    We were supposed to get "a couple of inches" of snow last night into today. "Maybe." Alas, Jersey didn't cool down enough for snow so we got rain. A lot of it. And it's supposed to be cloudy for the rest of the week. Ew! Your weather sounds lovely.

    Thanks for the idea with the ribbon. It's such an obvious solution I can't see why I didn't think of it before. But then, I am a bit slow on the pick-up now and then.
