Well it is very cold this morning, wind chills are single digit. But oh look at that sunshine and blue skies. Love it.
My daughter Karen gave me a wonderful box of chocolates for my birthday. Do you see some missing? :):)
This is how I have been enjoying them. In the afternoon along with a cup of coffee. Such a tasty treat. This is one of the bad things of winter...not getting outside...so we are tempted .
When it's cold out, I will light candles on the kitchen window sill. I still have a few birthday flowers . So I love them along with the candle.
This past weekend was gray and dreary. Two of my daughters complained about feeling sad. I think it's the long stretch till nice days and lack of sunshine. They both said they want to see the sun. LOL. I guess they are a lot like me. (Plus we need to stop watching so much news) I want the sunshine too. So today is going to be lovely to me.
Wishing all of you a beautiful new week. XO
Happy Birthday,Susie! It is in the low 30's here this morning, Brrrr!ReplyDelete
I try not to watch too much news, everyone has an opinion and don't mind sharing it!
Have a good day!
Sylvia, I like being in he know...but sometimes the media just beats us over the heads with their reports. It's really cold this morning but to be near 30 later. The sunshine sure does help my spirits. :):) Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Such a long winter for you thus far....love the candles glowing in the window on a cold January night Susie! Hope the sun is shining on you today!ReplyDelete
Betsy, The sun is out here today and I think it will be all day. Love it. Makes me smile . The candle I am burning is a gift from my g.son and it's a pine scent...I like that scent. Makes me think of outdoors. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Good Morning sweet friend. Yep it was so heavenly to wake up this morning and have the sun peeking through the windows. Ahhh felt fabulous. Yep it is so cold here too but the sun helps so much. I burn candles too in the winter. They give a feel of cozy. Love that your birthday flowers are hanging on.ReplyDelete
Have a great week.
Kris, I felt like doing a happy dance this morning, when I saw the sunshine. Just lifts me up. I burn candles more in winter than any other time of year. I would never buy those multi colored daisies...but Ted did and I separated the color combos. Made it nicer.Delete
shh. I am ready for taking some walks. LOL Blessings to you up there in Chicago. xoxo, Susie
Happy birthday, dear Susie! Hope you had a great day. How nice to get that box of chocolates. You can make them last a long time by eating just one at a time. Don't know that I have that will power. The sun really makes a difference doesn't it? We are having a sunny day, but like your weather, it is cold. But Spring is only 56 days away!ReplyDelete
Thank you sweet Kathy. My birthday was actually a couple weeks ago...how fast is this month flying by? Yikes. I have had a chocolate everyday with my afternoon cup of coffee. Makes me feel special. :) I know that spring is ever so near and I am getting excited about that. I know you love to be able to puttered in your backyard and plant things....me too. But honestly the older I get the less I do. I am more into porch gardening. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
We all need some Vitamin D. I am smiling to think how cheering passersby find your candle in the window. (I do not see too many empty spaces. 🍫)ReplyDelete
Vee, I miss sitting out in the sun. I do not sit in it long. I like walking the driveways here and having the sun shining. Smiles from heaven to me. Hope you are doing well. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
That's one of the main reasons I love Florida...lots of bright sunshine! It's so warm here today that I have the ceiling fan going! Love your candles in the window and cute coffee cup! I'll take a cup if it's still hot! Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, I know most of your photos have sunshine. :):) I would move to Florida if all my children would too. LOL A friend of ours moved back here from Florida, so I know these cold days bother her more. Bless you and your hubby, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, the dreariness of winter. My SIL was that same way, she just hated the sunless days. Course I do too..and try not to get depressed--easier said than done. I guess our temps are nice today, but the high winds make the wind chills feel...brrrr (smile) I have a doctors appointment tomorrow, I hope it will be nice. Stay well and warm and enjoy a chocolate for me...:)ReplyDelete
Gert, I truly try not to let myself get too down. So I stay busy. But I know there are times when a person just can't help feeling blue. I usually have a good cry, then pray and I am better.LOL. Blessings, stay warm and safe. xoxo, SusieDelete
I hope that you had an amazing birthday Susie! Those chocolates look so delicious! It feels like Winter again the past few days, but it's supposed to get warm again by the end of the week lol! I hope that you have an blessed week!ReplyDelete
Pilar, My b-day was actually two weeks ago. I have just been enjoying those candies one, each day since. Our weather been crazy this winter, super cold temps and then some amazing highs. Today is windy. Chin up honey, it's less than seven weeks till spring. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, dear!! We missed your birthday!!ReplyDelete
While we were at the camper I got hungry for candy and did not have any! I must fix that!
We just got home today and I have felt a little blah. Doesn't help that both of us have had a bout with allergies since we left on Thursday.
Wishing you sunshine and happiness! And another box of chocolates!!
Lind, My b-day was two weeks ago...I have just been having one of those chocolates everyday since. LOL I hate that you and LD suffered from allergies while trying to have your outing. Our sunshine lasted all day Monday. The wind picked up last night and will be blowing all today. Sounds fierce. Blessings to all there, xoxo,love, SusieDelete
Well, Happy Birthday, Susie! I don't think you told us ahead of time...or if you did I missed it!!ReplyDelete
We had a bit of sun here today, too, but then it clouded up and we have had 4 or 5 " of new snow in the last 3 or 4 hours. UGH! So tired of winter. I'm with all of you-dreary and sad that winter is so long.
Have a good week- xo Diana
Diana, I am so thankful, we have not had heavy snows. I hope your melts soon. I have counted 7 weeks till spring. Hopefully winter doesn't go any further. All day sunshine on Monday was wonderful...it was still cold....but the sun helps. Stay warm my friend. Blessings to all, xoxo, SusieDelete
Happy birthday to you, Susie! Those are nice treats your daughter gave you! I read somewhere yesterday that here it has been a record setting low number of hours of sunlight in the month of January. I hope some sunshine heads your way soon! -JennReplyDelete
Jenn, No wonder people are sad and grumpy.:):) We all need our sunshine. Seven more weeks till spring.:):) Hopefully winter isn't longer. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
I miss the warm sun and sitting on the porch as well. I guess we all get anxious for spring. It's been quite cold here but then it'll warm up like it did today to 60. I love burning my candles more so in the winter as well and stop tempting me with those delicious chocolates. lol. Hugs, xoReplyDelete
Susie, I am so ready for weather warm enough to be outdoors and walk or sit on the porch. I walked around the yard today, even though it is so cold and windy. I was looking to see if things were still trying to sprout. The irises are still green and about 3 inches tall. 60 degrees is nice. :):) Hope you are feeling better. Blessings to you and your,Love you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Going to ft Myers area next week for sunshine. If you book your trip far enough in advance you can get tickets for $178.00 round trip through Southwest. That's cheaper than hotels! We've had too many dark days this winter.ReplyDelete
Cindy girl, I wish I could come along. Enjoy your time away. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
We here were reminded that it's still winter as we got about an inch of snow. It's been warmer than usual around here with very little snow...so far. As I write the it's about 40 degrees.ReplyDelete
It's still about 4 months until Arlene and I can take a vacation. You know where.
Boston Boy, I am amazed at the mild winter you are having , as well as we are in Indiana. Today was 41 here. If it would snow now I'd go into shock. That 4 months will fly by. It's be a great time...you know you two have never let the weather bother you at the Vineyard. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a nice gift from your daughter, Susie. Chocolate and coffee during the day is the best treat. I love how you light your candles on your window sill on dreary days. And I bet your flowers brighten your house up when it's overcast and cold outside. They are so pretty.ReplyDelete
Sheri, I have enjoyed some mild weather here...it'll be bone chilling cold one day or two...then turn a bit warmer.So I need not complain. I am going to get a new candle for the kitchen. Blessings, love, xoxo,SusieDelete
