The wash is done, the floors are swiffered, the counters are cleaned and polished and the Valentine decorations are down. Dishes are washed and the bed is made. I never forgot what my mother in law told me years ago, A clean sink and made beds will make it look like you slaved all day. Brilliant advice! It was a stroke of genius to make the chili a couple of days ago because there's no need to cook dinners. Of course it wasn't a planned stroke of genius, it just happened that way.
This morning I sat in front of the TV to watch one of my favorite DVDs, 'Purgatory'. Years ago it was a made for TV movie on TNT. I've looked for it ever since. I finally found it a few months back. I can't remember where, though.
The star is Sam Shepard who is one of my favorite stars. The blurb says '..The only thing worse than being bad is spending an eternity being good.' That's all I'm going to say. It may be on Netflix or even yoo toob if you want to check it out. You won't be sorry.
Since all this snow has made me yearn for a bit of spring, I made one major adjustment on the kitchen table. The every day decoration is a set of rectangle place mats that are light in color with a set of round ones over them that are a darker green. Both sets were purchased on sale. The lighter ones were bought at Dillard's for 2.29 each, the other, I can't remember. The round set has been with me for the whole time I've lived here. It's too far back to remember much about the price or where I found them.
I thought removing the darker round ones would 'spring' up the kitchen area a bit. A happy face appeared when I saw the results. It really doesn't take much to make me content.

Trying to figure out how to delete the pictures from my camera on the computer proved fruitless. The next step was to see if they could be deleted from the camera. Bingo. Nearly 600 images disappeared to make room for new ones. There was even an option to remove all of the images at one time. Easy Peasy!
A post showing the effects of winter is in order. They say we are getting more snow tonight.
Stay safe. And warm.
|Look what came in the mail for my birthday from my West Coast pal! My very own bay tree plant.|
This plant makes my heart sing. Thank you, L.

with the rain that followed the snow.
Keeping warm though.
