February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March. ~J.R. Stockton

I am thinking I am about ready to get back to this blog after taking time to create Black Orchid One I have to wait on the Lord for inspiration and one I have to get off my butt to do. Makes waiting not sound so bad.:) It is like getting back into exercise, it is so good for you and once you get into a routine you love it but it sounds way too much like work to start.

I miss reading all of your blogs and am really looking forward to checking back in and seeing what is new and current and to being inspired by all your gifts, talents and ideas.
I am so excited to see that even in the absence of recent posts I have gained a few new followers and it doesn't look like anyone bailed on me. lol. You guys are awesome.

I look forward to sharing with you especially now as it will begin to warm up and the sun will come back out. I have faith. I know it'll happen.
I don't know about you but this winter has been and still is loooooong. I am not smiling as much or doing as much. My battery that runs on solar power is fading. It is usually in March that the Lord sends snowdrops pushing up through the snow to tell us to hang on, you've almost made it.
For now I am buying my flowers and visiting our local Gardens that have a gorgeous conservatory full of green. I can do this.

Those of you who are south of the cold can be that much more thankful after reading this.

Have a wonderful week, stay warm and buy yourself some flowers. Your emotional health is just as important as your physical if not more so so give yourself a little boost.

Here is a link to last years grocery store tulip arrangements to inspire.

Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles. ~Author Unknown

Happy Holidays from my home to yours!

This little rosemary tree will last for a very long time and will provide fresh herbs all year. 
Adding some moss to the vintage glass balls gives it a little more warm and rustic feel. I always keep sheet moss on hand to use in potted plants and decor.

Welcome November


All that we behold is full of blessings.  ~William Wordsworth

Today I am thinking about all the things that I am Thankful for. I am not going to list them but my heart is full of gratitude for the place I find myself in today. Life is not all happy and care free but I have peace and hope and isn't that what we really want and need? Peace in the midst of this craziness and hope for a future that is still enveloped by peace.

I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving this month. Feel free to start being thankful now no matter where you find yourself. We all have a great deal more than we sometimes realize. If you find yourself in a place where the pain in your life overshadows a thankful heart please know that I am praying for you. I pray for all of you who read this blog and believe that God knows what each of your needs are and He will meet you there.
This is page 1 of 5. The next four posts go with this November post/mini mag. Just scroll down. The pages are not in order. I will work to remedy that issue as I have time.
