DEJA VU







I have my favorite stalls at Deja Vu and this is one of them. The guys restore old furniture beautifully. They always have something that catches my eye. If only I had a huge house.

I booked our Spring vacation. We are not traveling very far, going to southern Indiana, just to get away and relax. Tired of driving 1000 kilometers to get to our destinations.
* * *
Book (short stories) I am reading this week - The Artist of Disappearance by Anita Desai.

Our snow has disappeared again and we have beautiful sunshine, although it is cold.
* * *
What are your plans for Spring?
* * *
I have a surprise and will tell you about it in my next post.

Have a nice weekend!

Fun in the snow







We had a great day yesterday. Despite the cold temps we went for a walk and watched the kids sled. Then we were off to our favorite vintage stores for some browsing and a restaurant for dinner.

Frosty is the morning;
But the sun is bright,
Flooding all the landscape
With its golden light.
Hark the sounds of laughter
And the voices shrill!
See the happy children
Coasting down the hill.
There are Tom and Charley,
And their sister Nell;
There are John and Willie,
Kate and Isabel - 
Eyes with pleasure beaming,
Cheeks with health aglow;
Bless the merry children,
Trudging through the snow!
Now I hear them shouting,
"Ready! Clear the track!"
Down the slope they're rushing,
Now they're trotting back.
Full of fun and frolic,
Thus they come and go.
Coasting down the hillside,
Trudging through the snow.

Sabina (with the pretty red boots) and I had a great time in Chicago this past December. She sent this pic to me (taken by my husband)  yesterday. I knew then what this post would be all about...Cannot wait to see her again this coming Spring! We have known each other for almost 24 years. (So you know we must have been infants when we met, ha,ha...)

Figure 8.....anyone?





The other night we went for a nice little walk through town. We stopped at Riverside Skating Center and had fun watching the skaters. It was a warm evening so we stayed a while so that I could shoot some pics. It's not that easy to catch anything in motion. I need more practice.

I love the music by Lady Antebellum

Book I am reading right now "The House of Bilqis" by Azhar Abidi.

My other favorite blog aaaandreaaaa's Creative Memories. If you like arts & crafts and so much more, head over to Andrea's blog and become a follower. She is such a wonderful person.

It is really cold out today and it has started to snow. The wind is howling and not even my little Gracie wants to go outside. So we will have a cozy day with lots of lounging on the couch.
* * *
Well, tomorrow it's back to work. It's been nice having had these two three-day weekends, I could get used to that.
* * *
Have a good first week of January!...See you soon!
