Early snowdrops

I picked early snowdrops today.  The day was sunny, but cold as was our walk.   I brought the small bouquet of snowdrops home to enjoy.  They are blooming in a small cream pitcher on the windowsill above my kitchen sink.  A small touch of spring!

Clyde comes to live at my house

Clyde with his deliciously large cookie, an Etsy purchase from Lorraine Young Pottery, came to live with Mollie and I.

Isn't he handsome!

I visited the bookstore today, and of course added more books to my bookshelf, waiting to be read.

Ymm! A hot bath!  The bathroom is filled with lavender scented steam.

Small Conversations

I have often thought that the handwritten letter as my favorite form of  correspondence.  In this modern age of e-mails, telephone conversations and text messages, I still write letters.  Although, I also use all these other forms of communication.  

Members of my family and friends have travelled away from my Ogden Canyon home.  I find ways of communicating with them, checking in with them.  I enjoy any form of communication I receive, wonderful gifts of their time.

Interestingly, I find I miss those small conversations that are shared while doing the dishes, driving in the car or a small job at work.  The sharing of stories, remembering of past experiences, a shared joke.  The small conversations that don't transfer well into the written word.


The weekend, time to relax and reboot!

Too many projects, thoughts and ideas spinning around in my head.  Mostly work related.  I am putting together the Spring and Summer Class Schedule, preparing a press release for the March exhibit, taking reservations, cataloging art and preparing for the center's annual fundraising art auction.  -Overload-  psst!
