shaky saturday.....and first contact


holy icy winds batman
is it cold today

the birds are sleeping late in their little nests
'coz I don't see one anywhere

my african violets are beginning to bloom again
and it's all the pink ones this time

but the other day when I walked into the grocery store
I was met by buckets and buckets of flowers at the front door
and who can resist
not me
so I have a little sunshine here in a vase
to brighten up the place

just a tease
it's almost done!!
Haven't worked on it very much lately but today just might be
the day

Yesterday I received an e-mail from a Flickr friend
known to most of us as
she finally pushed all the right buttons and set up a blog
and then
like all of us
panicked and couldn't figure out what to do next
so after asking for her 'phone number
I called her and
we got to talk
the first real contact with a
virtual friend!!!!
so, hopefully, any minute now,
we'll all be able to go and make our first visit
and welcome her to
blog land.
 we'll have yet another place to go
when we blog hop

(edited to add link when I had it!!!)

well, I'm off to start the day
I think that's the cat
stomping around trying to get my attention
how can a 10lb cat make so much noise?!!
yes, yes, I'm coming!!!!

see ya!



  1. I feel cold and it really isn't over here so I can imagine how you are feeling when it really is cold outside. :/ Brrr is right! Stay warm and cozy! I look forward to your blogger friend. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  2. Isn't it chilly today? Brrrr! Had to give in and light a fire as well as have the heaters on. Following Ellen's blog now - thanks for letting me know about it. Should be very exciting, she has lovely work. Stay wrapped up and warm! xxx

  3. I enjoyed seeing your flowers on this winter day.

  4. Marilyn...Thanks for your well wishes for Webster. Can't wait to see the knitting project. Your african violets are lovely...they remind me of my grandmother who raised them. It's nice when virtual friends become real ones. Ellen is lucky you found her. Stay warm.
