Has anyone else (like me) just blinked and realized that it's nearly mid-December already? My brain is still telling me that it should be Halloween time. Heck, we just broke open the last of our pumpkins in the woods yesterday. I guess it was getting funny to see pumpkins on the stoop with a backdrop of Christmas lights.
> We woke to a tiny coating of snow last week which is serving as a reminder of the month we are in. So pretty as it coated all the tree limbs and wood pile!
> I am amazed at how green the moss looks. Makes me wonder if it's always this green, or if I am just noticing now because everything else is so gray?
> I got a henna tattoo last week. You know the kind of temporary tattoos that originated in India? It was my first one... and it's been so much fun to have!
> Having a henna is making me want to pick up the dye paste and try it again on myself. The designs are limitless and it was so darn quick/easy.
> I am amazed at the crispy-frosty edges on the leaves and how they all get so much texture when they are coated like this.
> I am head-over-heels in love with this girl. She's a silly as she is beautiful and I wouldn't mind spending every minute hanging out with her.
> Meanwhile, this one is reminding me what it is like to be puppy to the max. Everything is being hunted, tissues and shoes aren't safe, and running circles through the house is great entertainment. For every moment I am cross with her, there are fifteen that I want to cuddle and adore her. She's not quite ready for prime time yet, but we made it through puppy school and I can tell she is a great dog in progress!
> And as if the season and time of year aren't confused enough... I walked through my garden to find these flowers in bloom... despite the snow fallen around them. I also saw other plants and bulbs like the crocus budding and thinking of blooming too.
Sorry to be quiet for so long, but hoping to get back into the routine this week with blogging and show you some of the things I am working on... even if some have to be kept secret.
Cheers to a great start to the week!
