Wow, can you all believe it is a New Year!?
Christmas is over and I am ready for spring. :) Once Christmas and New Year has come and gone, I'm ready for sunshine and warm air. We had a couple of snows, the temperature has been cold, but nothing too serious, yet. Winter snows are always so magical in appearance, but I really don't like the cold so much anymore. However, spring and summer brings out the bugs, mosquitoes, and snakes. Nothing is perfect, huh. I have a while before I'll be seeing green and flowers blooming in my part of the country.
This past Friday I made the most wonderful, delicious soup, yep, another soup. :) Red Lentil Coconut Soup, every bite just tasted healthy and full of healing, packed with the perfect blend of spices, and my taste buds did a happy dance with every bite.

My daughter sent me some new photos of her house. Due to D's health, we really can't travel, so I have not been able to see her house irl. :(
All photo below were taken by my daughter, jlm.
The horns were some my dad found on a trip he and my mom took on a trip to Florida when they were first married. They hung in the house I grew up in. I had them in a couple of the houses we lived in, but did not have a place to do them justice in the house we are in. I was thrilled when Jaime wanted them. They look just beautiful in her beautiful home.
I just love this space...I could do lots of dreaming sitting here...me and my morning cup of coffee.
One beautiful room! Oh yeah, I made the crazy quilt topper on her table. :) I'm so loving it in this room.
She made this delicious focaccia bread yesterday. Going to have to try this myself. She said it was delicious! She made a dipping oil to go with it, a recipe a restaurant gave to her. Recipe for the bread is from Williams Sonoma. She is an awesome cook!
They spent time in Utah over the holidays, skiing and snowboarding. My two awesome grand kids!!! I LOVE and ADORE these two so much. I miss being with them and watching them grow. I thank God every day they have the wonderful parents they have. And that guy in the center, he is just the most awesome guy!!! I love this guy! My daughter could not have found a more wonderful guy.
Today I am thankful she provided me with photos to blog. :))
I have something else to blog, but I've been having trouble with blogger all weekend and blogger doesn't want to play nice. :)
