It's cold!

A chipping sparrow hiding in the dogwood tree.

Mr Junco posing so nicely for me.

Pretty frost formations on my rear view mirror.

Frosty dogwood

Mr. Ram the Hood Ornament is up to his ears in snow.

Rocco is in his glory!  (Below zero temps don't bother him!)

Well, I think we've rounded the corner!  Only a few more weeks of winter left. 

 I'm looking forward to open doors, warm breezes, natural vitamin D production, fragrant and colorful blossoms, the smell of cut grass, robins, flip flops, and the sound of crickets!

What are you looking forward to?  I want to know!

Have a great day!

Photo journaling-brrrrrrrrr!!!

Some photos from the last couple weeks:
What a bunch of flakes!  (Hanging out on the deck.)

Snow is certainly beautiful...

but I'm ready for spring!

Lidl Gurl, super model kitty-cat

Smoothie-on a freezing cold day.  I had to put on layers after this one.

Heart peeps!  So pretty.  I normally hate the taste of peeps, but these are strawberry flavored and I liked them.

Chocolate covered strawberries that I bought my daughter for her 23rd birthday.

The Roc is keeping watch with his eye dots!

Tufted titmouse sitting in the dogwood tree

Baby bellas looking so pretty!

The snowball effect

Rocco never minds the cold.

The other morning, the sun was shining just right on the floating snowflakes-making them look like glitter.  So cool and beautiful!
That's all for now-have a great day!

Photo journaling

Some photos from the last month or so-more than I thought there was!
New Year's Eve sunset

A little red bandit

The grandkitties, as always:

He's one cool cat.

Pitt panther


Little girl

Or maybe I'll spell it Lidl Gurl.  (These pics are a bit blurry-she's moves so fast.  But they'll still make cute magnets.)

Awwwwww-Lidl Gurl!!!!!!!
Sunrise-one morning when I had to go track down the Roc.

The friendly sky


The bracelet my daughter got me for Christmas

Kitchen windowsill


I just love this afghan I got at Goodwill a few years ago.  (The thing really holds the heat.)

I wish I could thank the person that made it and let them know that it is used and loved.  :)

The story of my life

Udon noodles

Tea on the windowsill

The Roc-in his element

Awwwwww-my handsome big boy!  I can't believe he'll be five in March!
That's all for now-have a wonderful day!

Rag rug photoshoot

Some rag rugs I've made over the last month or so:

I'm giving this one to my Case International loving brother-in-law.  He is also known as my brother-out-law or brother-in-love.  It just depends on what day it is.

Finally, something a bit different-a rectangular rag rug.  I wanted to use up some odds and ends t-shirt rag balls-so I decided to try a rectangular rug.  Since I can't count stitches to save my life, I thought that this was really hard to make.  I kept tearing it out because I kept screwing it up.  Finally, I just decided to forget about counting and wing it and not worry about the wonkiness.  Hmmmm-I think I kind of like it, despite its wonkiness.

Have a great day, everybody!
