This morning I woke up in a bit of a fog. Or should I say in a bit of a dusting ?? I have been fighting a sinus and chest infection all week and I looked forward to relaxing all weekend. With the time change allowing for the extra hour of sleep I can't lose right? Wrong. Instead of waking up at 2:30 in the morning as I have all week, I now wake up at 1:30. This recovery is not as speedy as I thought it would be even with my antibiotic. BUT, at least I got that extra hour to relax anyway.
So I thought I would be smart and take my iPad to bed with me and when I wake up with a coughing fit at least I can entertain myself until I can fall back to sleep. Pinterest and I have become good friends this week. So much so that I have probably lost several of my other friends now from annoying them with a tsunami of emails of 'look what I just found!'. You know... just like the 'non-computer' person who suddenly decides they should get on the information highway and invest in a computer and they forward you all the jokes they've just discovered and you've already read for the past 20 years. Dear friends, please forgive my new-found excitement. Yes I'm a little bored, but I really was thinking of you when I saw that idea. .. and that idea.... and oh ya... THAT idea.
Back to the dusting. Ok, so this morning (at
2:30 am 1:30 am) I thought - Ok Bonnie, Stop looking at the remodeling, decorating and craft ideas because you aren't well enough (or rich enough) to do any of them yet - go to the Christmas cookie ideas and see what you can find for this year that will be different. Oh my goodness, so many ideas are out there to choose from I just don't know where I want to start, but I do remember drifting back to sleep between powdered donut snowmen, and powdered snowflakes, powdered donut kabobs, powdered cupcakes.
Now, back to the beginning of the story. This morning I woke up in a bit of a fog. Looked out the window and thought I saw a giant Pinterest 'Pin' of powdered sugar. We had our first dusting of snow. It was so pretty to see all the coloured leaves peaking through the snow. So I smiled and thought, what a pretty way to wake up
first thing again this morning. I stood there admiring for a moment, t hen I had a cough attack, peed my pants, and was brought back to reality and I thought I would capture the moment with my camera.
|I have a perfect spot in front of the window when I sit to relax. All week I have been admiring the vibrant colour |
of the roses peaking in at me.
|Hydrangeas are one of my most favourite flowers.|
|I wish I could take this inside and keep it like this.|
Oh !! I hear geese approaching.
|Had the sun been shining, this would have been a great shot of the glistening tree.|
|It really does look like someone just dusted the gardens with pwdered sugar.|
|The Yucca looks kinda Yummy.|
|For the life of me I cannot even remember the name of this bush.|
|.... still cant.|
|These are the four foot tall burrs that I keep forgetting to dig up.|
|Even mushrooms like a bit of dusting.|
|OH! Found the neighbour's ball.|
|A canopy of evergreen.|
|Oh dear, I left the kids in the garden.|
They seem to be happy enough; yep, he's got her covered.
What a guy!
|Sugared driftwood anyone?|
|Pull up a seat and set a spell.|
|I love the random spattering of snow on the fence.|
|Yes... that is the pumpkin house still sitting in the urn.|
The birds seem happy enough.
|A few snap dragon's left.|
|Another one peeking out.|
Last week I picked some of the snap dragons that were still making their appearance and so today I thought I would bring the mini-roses in and enjoy them for a few days.
Time to go make a cup of tea. Of course, 'you know who' just HAD to join in ....
As I write this, the dusting of snow is all melted away now. I'm glad I grabbed my camera when I did. I guess that extra hour today turned out to be a benefit in more ways than one.
Off I go now... the tea is long gone, but chicken soup is calling my name.
