First Snow

Image
  Happy birthday to my beautiful daughter, Bonnie. She brings me so much joy. My first snow day of the year! I work at a Montessori school and we are getting our first big snow storm of the year so.... SNOW DAY!!  I made my own hummus last weekend. It was delicious. I added a little bit of turmeric along with the chickpeas, lemon, tahini, and garlic.  I plan on eating a more plant based diet this year. It's only been a week and I'm already feeling better. I did eat two slices of mushroom pizza last night and ended up having heartburn so it will be a good long time before I eat dairy again.  Each month one of our families brings in a bouquet of flowers.  We cut most of the stems off and place them on a tray which we place on the children's table.  We place another tray with a very small pitcher and a few very small bud vases.  The child fills up the pitcher using water from the bathroom sink, brings it back to the table and pours the water in a bud vase of their choosing.

Oh Little Town of Bethlehem

Image
  My daughter, Hannah's house is just so pretty. It's a large, Victorian era duplex with beautiful light. Some of the windows have been replaced but there are a few old leaded windows that are old and beautiful and the light is so soft that I am always taking pictures. This is an sweet old table that she picked up in her travels. She put some vintage Christmas ornaments in a terra cotta pot and next to that is a lemon tree plant. The whole thing sits under her kitchen windows. So pretty. My husband and I went to her house on Christmas morning. She served us delicious French toast and mimosas. ~  A friend of mine flew over Marblehead on her way home from vacation and had the wherewithal to take a photo.  It made me think of Oh Little Town of Bethlehem.  This year I was able to purchase a poinsettia through my church in honor of my mother. It was comforting to know that she was represented during the Christmas Eve Mass. I had a chance to rearrange the living room a little bit. I

  I am thankful for my daughters. I wasn't always sure I was doing everything right when they were growing up.  Lord knows I made some mistakes. But I loved them more than anything....still do even though they are thirty something. They turned out good even through my clumsy parenting. I am so proud of who they are as woman, both so different and yet both so beautiful, and compassionate, and kind, and full of strength. ~ ~ ~ Thankful Thursday

  I love to visit my daughter, Hannah's house.  She lives in a big, old, Victorian era duplex. This is her dining room. Joe and I were there on Christmas morning and she made french toast.  I always end up walking around taking lots of pictures in her house because the light from the old windows is so beautiful and soft. She has so many old, antique things about.  It's just so pretty. She found this beautiful old table at a second hand store! It's under her kitchen windows and she's placed a terra cotta pot filled with vintage Christmas balls ornaments and a lemon tree plant.  ~ ~ ~ What's going on in your home?
