Just a bit 'o happy for today

Happy sights found in my world....

 Little snippets of color
                Of life

Most times it's the little things that 'make a day'   :-)
A pop of color, an email from a friend for no reason, feeding bird-buddies, endless coffee
comments found here ~ sharing the weave of similarities and differences ~ in our lives!
Small pleasures

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 5 PM EST this afternoon.
* Hazards... heavy snow.
* Accumulations... storm totals of 8 to 12 inches.
* Winds... northeast 10 to 20 mph... becoming northwest and
increasing to 15 to 25 mph this afternoon with gusts to 35 mph.


Third major storm in six days ...


I know it's wicked all over the country, but I thought having a tiny cup cake sized
pity party would be ok ~ you know, just a tiny bit-o-whining prior to heading back
out to shovel AGAIN, lol

Isn't it cute how my weather service uses little 'snowflake-esque' asterisks rather than
solids as bullet points for their postings? lol

In the home stretch

Mini Daffs

Week upon week
 Of four degrees
 Week upon week of
   Fourteen degrees
    Winds that howled
     As wolves-a-hunting

     But yesterday
      But today
        Fifty degrees
         Forty degress
            Sun and sky send snow on her way
              It's a short reprieve I know

                 But it's Spring, peeking around the corner
                   Just before she enters the year

Random Studio Views

Where do studio artist
lampwork beads come from?
From glass rods!
And torch flames!
And brick kilns!
Oh my!

My muse mutters, my hands 'transcribe'
Italian glass melts, solid to liquid
I coax it into muse-whispered shapes
Kilns anneal
Magic revealed.....

And that is where artist created lampwork beads come from
One, by one by one

How many days till Spring?

My bird bath frog seeming to signal for help!
windswept snow filled fields
 I'm pretty sure you're weary of seeing pictures of snow - yet I somehow can not refrain from sharing mine.....

So if you're tired of snow-snaps, skip this post but if you're interested, keep reading!

Snow reaching window height!


It is beautiful.....

One of the endless essential paths shoveled

Yes, tell me is it long till Spring arrives?
(feel free to lie to me if  necessary, lol)
