I do hope you are all winding up shopping and are able to relax and reflect somewhat on Christmas. We can get so stressed out on things we ‘think’ need doing, that we forget to stop and enjoy the small things, forget to be thankful for our many blessings.
It is gray and drippy here this morning. A ‘mini’ cool front is moving down but it isn’t going to give us chilly weather, just cooler weather. Right now it is 70 at 7:40 a.m. Christmas day it is predicted to be around 80. We like the holiday better when there is a chill in the air, but we don’t always get what we want.
Here are some pics to brighten the day hopefully, of those who now have barren and sleeping gardens.
The first three are of the red hibiscus, very tropical.
Next we have dear sweet Maggie, a found rose that could be a Bourbon rose.
Poinsettias and tropicals.
Latest caravan work for those of you who have asked recently. Now that the mud work is done, DH has started on the floor, painting the first coat on yesterday. There will be another coat of under color for grout, and then he’s going to paint on hexagonal shapes in terra cotta color and then a couple of coats of polyurethane for protection. I went in there the other day, sitting on a little step ladder, just enjoying the work that DH has done, and envisioning how it will look when finished. From trash to a treasure that is for sure. A little 6’x8’ space filled with light.
I took the next two pictures yesterday morning. One looking into my little space, and you can see the little Christmas tree in the living room too and the other picture looking out onto the patio from my little space.
Some of my latest creations above and below.
Well, I better get a move on. I’ll be heading off to work again today, looking forward to puttering around here starting tomorrow. Don’t know yet what I’ll be working this next week, but I think I’ll take a break from blogging to relax and reflect in the holiday.
May you all have a lovely Christmas and a love and peace filled 2012. May you have good health, may your needs be met on a daily basis. Let us be thankful for our many blessings, no matter the size.
Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady
