Thinking of Spring

It is snowing again here today. Ice too. Schools and meetings are cancelled. I hope I can still get my hair done tomorrow morning. It was already cancelled once a couple weeks ago with the last snow!

Happy Friday! Here are a last few random pictures from around my house as I stay inside out of the extreme heat this week.

My daughters gave me this cute little plant one mother’s day a few years ago. I don’t have any really plants around the house any more. I did for a couple of years up until a few months ago when gnats showed up around the house and I had a good feeling they were coming from the plants.

I didn’t want to deal with trying to rid the plants of them and the plants were all out growing their pots anyway, and I didn’t really have room for them to get bigger. So, I made the somewhat painful decision to cut them all down and disperse them around the yard to be mulched by the lawn mower and mixed back into the earth. Since then no more gnats in the house!

Every Christmas without fail, my mom gives all of us kids calendars. I usually get one with beautiful landscape scenes. I hang it on a board by the door in our kitchen coming in from the garage.

Do you have special gifts from loved ones sitting out in your house all year long?

Sweet Treats

With the heat indices reaching 109°F lately I’ve taken to indoor photography around the house for now. So whether you want to or not get ready to learn some random facts about me.

These Lindor chocolates are my go-to dessert after dinner almost every night. They are super rich and creamy. Delicious 😋

While chocolate may be one of my favorite foods, coffee is one of my favorite drinks especially since we just got this fancy coffee maker that makes hot coffee, iced coffee, cold brew and more.

I can make a cold brew and fix it up to taste just like what I order at Starbucks! I take it with a couple pumps of sugar free vanilla syrup and heavy cream and very light ice. I am in coffee heaven every morning now.

How do you like your coffee? And what is your favorite dessert?
