40 Degrees and Rain

Not an auspicious way to start the weekend.  Dreary and drab.  Actually, that's the way I have been feeling the past couple of weeks.  When I look back at my January posts from last year, tho, I see the same pattern.

I think I am hibernating!  

Recharging the batteries after the whirlwind of the holidays and the end of the year - both at home and at work.

I can hear the neighborhood geese honking as they fly over.  No doubt their morning pond is not such an exciting place today, either.  We are in the same boat.  They thought they had good feeding grounds for the winter, so they got too lazy to make the flight south for real warmth.  Now they have to endure days like today - the price of choosing the easy corn.

At least I can have a fire in the fireplace and a hot cup of Earl Gray - no wet bugs for me today!

Think I'll go sit under my "sunlight spectrum light" and read your inspiring words.  Or, maybe look at a seed catalog.  Or, think about my new kitchen shelves.  I have to wake up enough to tell you about them ... in about three weeks.  Or, find an interesting soup recipe - lots of possibilities.

Then I'll go buy flowers.  Monday is Flowers in the House Day.  Hope you will join us.

Much Ado about ... Not Much!

You are no doubt waiting on pins and needles to know ... how many years did I manage to peel off my face?

Did I go from this:
 To this?
Actually, no.  
The peeling started Friday.  All day long I was brushing what seemed like flecks of facial tissue or down off my face.  Finally, I realized it was ... well, face!

Underneath, it's slightly pinker and slightly more moist.  It doesn't rise to the status of "dewy", altho I would love that.

As one test case, I would say save your money and don't do the "lunchtime peel".  It does not seem to offer much.
  Am I done getting "work" done on my face.  Perhaps  or, not.

As real winter weather settles into the Mid Atlantic states, I'm hunkered down with a fire and wishing you a good week.
