Hi there, thanks for stopping by.. how has 2014 been treating you so far? We've been packing away the Christmas decorations, wrapping each ornament with tissue, finding each and every Santa and snowman.. it's quite a job around here since I go CRAZY decorating for the holidays. And we're having a run of brilliant sunny days, pretty amazing, really. It gets up to 45-48 degrees fahrenheit during the day, too. The east winds are blowing so the air is brisk and fresh!
Our winter garden.. it's kind of.. bleak?
Our garden wind art piece was spinning like crazy and whirling around.
We have a little forest on the east side of our farmhouse and it is there to cut the effect of the east wind which blows a lot during the colder parts of the year. We have gusts up to 60-80 mph. I wish I could share with you the smell of the fresh air here.
Our gazebo in the winter.. we had to remove the fabric shade awning from the top so that the east wind won't blow it away. :-)
I am soooo enjoying the sunshine in the dining room. Here it is bare bones, post holiday. I need to get a tablecloth on the table and something decorative. Candles? Flowers? Yes and yes.
We are heading off soon for lunch out and grocery shopping. Tonight we're making baked pork chops, fried potatoes and corn. A real southern meal. My mom made the best fried potatoes with onions, all crispy and delish. The secret ingredient is using some bacon grease to fry them. :-P Are you all set for a new year? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
