Lilacs, Christmas Ornaments and Maddening Gray Days

6 years ago
Spray of Lilac

My lilacs are in peak bloom this week. Lilacs are my favorite, favorite, favorite flower, every other flower is a distant second. Unfortunately, we're having a week of gray, damp, cold weather so I'm not able or experienced enough to get any good outdoor shots....grrr. This weekend is suppose to be nice, maybe I'll have better luck.

Speaking of the gray, damp, cold weather....I've had enough! I'm sick of feeling guilty for turning my heat on. I know, I know, I'm 44 years old, have a job and my name is on the mortgage but I feel like a wimp because I don't like living in house that's 59 degrees and damp! Ok, ok enough complaining....not everyone understands a New Englander's obsession with the weather.

 

Gray Sky Not Black and White

I'm making good progress finishing up this years batch of needlepoint Christmas ornaments. I have two ready for this years Christmas tree, two ready for the finishing (put the backings on), one almost done and two more to start. I'm unusually organized, how long do you think that can last?Odds are low!
