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.”

Seasonal signs

 I know, the East coast is colder than a tin toilet seat on the shady side of a glacier.  Here in the temperate valley, we have daffodills emerging. (I mulch my bulbs with leaves raked off the lawn.  Seems to work for me.)
 And the garden store has primroses on sale.  Soo happy to see their little faces smiling by my front door.
Meanwhile, my cactus is sure that somehow, somewhere, it's gotta be Christmas!!

Meantime, I am trying a scratch cake using real cake flour, and Chai tea.  We'll see how it turns out.  Oh, and I discovered a latino music station on the TV.  Who knew?  I've got sambas and tangos for background music, and I just may meet DH at the door with a rum in my hand and a rose in my teeth!

    We've got a tree outside the building at work that is budding. BUDDING! Can't stop to think in two-three weeks it's going to freeze again.

    Daffodills in January????

    We'll be lucky to see them in April!

    Good luck with the cake.

    There is something about winter flowers that's SO hardy and obstinate-- I think that's why they smell so good! Lovely pictures, Roxie... they make my day less iron gray.
