Something sweet

Nothing like a warm fuzzy kitty
to make the day.
16 degrees outside

This little baby has a way to make any available soft thing
her new most favorite place to sleep.

I needed to find something in the archive that was cheerful.

Today was the gloomiest, oomiest day of the winter.
So dark and somber even though it was over 60 degrees.
The rain is pouring down in sheets.

I am going to cook some comfort food and curl up to read.

Both Sides Now ~ Note Card Party


Bows and Flows of Angel Hair

and Ice Cream Castles in the air

Feathered Canyons everywhere

I've looked at clouds that way

How cool is this?

Just when you think there is nothing to photograph
along comes opportunity!

I've been complaining about the lack of snow.
Maybe I should stop that.

This is an old pic that reminded me of just how much fun it is to commute in snow.

The thing is... I will be going to Florida next week
and it is always so much more fun to go to a sunny place when the weather is totally rotten here. 

BTW... the above picture was take a few years ago in February so we are not out of the woods yet.

A Beautiful Morning

I arrived early today and got
settled in before sunrise.

This was the view from my office a few
minutes later. 

Nice way to start the day!

Fun Trinkets

I have a simple home
I try to keep it easy to maintain because I have
a very high pressure job.

If I had time, I could definitely be crafty, but
I don't have time.

Soooo... when I run into some totally cool thing (on sale) that helps me create a nice little focal point I
I get happy!!

I found this wonderful fun picture frame at Pier One.
Not sure if I am going to put a recipe in it or a picture.

P.S. Blogger is acting up again.
I had to go to Google Chrome in order to post a picture. 
Good Greif!!

A short bus ride over the mountain from Ixtapa is
the city of Zihauntenejo
What I like about this place is it is a real Mexican small city.

None of the glitzy, manicured, designed for North Americans from the USA kind of place.

Shopping is fun fun fun.

The people are friendly and inviting

There are definately points of interest

And the flavor is pure Mexico

I look forward to a second visit.

Total Cuteness

My little kitty never ceases to entertain me.
While stripping the bed I dropped the quilt on the floor next to the window and close to the heat vent.
By the time I got back after putting the sheets in the washer.
Abby had rearranged the quilt and curtain for a perfect
heat vent snuggy session.
She so loved her newly created bed that she stayed there for hours.
I didn't have the heart to disturb her pleasure.
