I have a name for the cold that has come to live with me. It is "I got you and won't let go". And just to make me feel worse, beautiful sunshine for you who can go places. I am stuck here for now with the MUSINEX ugly guy from the commercials.
Hope you are good!

I braved the cold and went to Aldi's this morning, I call Aldi's my "ordinary folks Trader Joe's". I guess everyone is experiencing cold weather now, maybe we commented too much on the mild winter. Stay warm anyway.

We followed the directions that came with it but it soon began to smell. So I called our family florist advisor Kynda and found that the water level was too high on the bulb and it was beginning to rot. So I cleaned it up and replaced the water at the right level and all was well.
My grandmother always had these indoors during the winter altho hers were planted in pots. She must have put them outside in the summer, flowers were scarce in those days so any we had were treated with great care.
So don't be afraid to try one next year, they were lots for sale at the craft stores around Christmas. It was fun to watch it grow. Happy Valentine's Day everyone.

We are having a small snow this morning, now we don't feel so left out. I think it was sent to us by Vee in Springfield, Illinois. She had a birthday yesterday and we talked on the phone. It was snowing there yesterday. I asked her what she has been doing lately and she says she is "coloring" and some of her friends and family are also. I have to admit I am tempted when I see the coloring books at Joann's.
I watched the last of "War and Peace" last night. Did anyone watch?

I would like her skirt a little fuller but couldn't manipulate it. I try not to waste anything, especially vintage and old-and-loved stuff.
We had a white frost this morning but I am so glad we have had an abundance of sunshine this winter. Yesterday I could have done some gardening but instead I made a rabbit.
