I am sure that most of you on the east coast are enjoying a tease of warm weather, at least for us northern girls. It has been absolutely gorgeous out! My daffodils are emerging from the long winters nap and I hope they don't get to shocked because I know we are not done with old man winter.
It has been an discouraging week for me. Back in Sept., I had lost my boss to a massive heart attack. The business was left to his sons and us 3 girls have been running it. Our tavern reminds me a lot of the TV series CHEERS. We are just ONE big happy family. Our landlord on the other hand has a very cold heart and gets quite upset when he can't have his way. Valentine's Day he displayed his coldness and put padlocks on our doors. It has been 1 week today and things are still unsettled and the doors are still padlocked! Trying to find a job in this market has been quite challenging......and I am still looking.
I have been doing a lot "catch up cleaning" since the weather has been encouraging. Cleaning out cupboards, organizing, finding "knick knacks" that have been lost and now emerged from their hiding places. I have been "somewhat" productive this week.
So this table is a little bit of spring with my Valentine Tulips still a bloom and are at their grandest display with a touch of bunnies that came out from their hiding place. The snowman coffee mugs are to remind me that old man winter is not finished yet! Hope you enjoy the pics and let me know how you are doing with your new finds! Enjoy!!
With Spring around the corner....
Beauty is coming to life...
The birds singing in the warm sunshine....
And the bunnies playing under the flowers.
But not to far away, a watchful eye is among us reminding us he is not done yet!
So, I will sit here among the flowers and enjoy a lite lunch
and enjoy the day....
As the evening draws near and settle down for the night....
and dreaming of that morning coffee and a scrumptious mid-day brunch,
I will enjoy the blustery day of old man's winter returns in hopes of a kinder, warmer spring days ahead!
Have a wonderful day!
