The Rain Returns

I've started work on "Chill Out" a kit by Heart in Hand.  I needed something portable for basketball games on Thursday and Saturday - this was just the ticket.

Solomon was quite taken with the idea of Hermit Stitching.  He further suggested Hermit Sleeping as a hobby. 

I've a few things in bloom in late January including this primrose

and my ornamental kale

and I've got several pansies going strong.

The daffodils are beginning to poke up out of the ground - a sign of things to come.

As today is a rather dreary day, I think Solomon has the right idea.  Make sure you schedule an Afternoon Nap.

Oh my, that primrose is lovely! And the kale has such neat texture.

I'd love to schedule an afternoon nap...would you mind calling my boss and telling him it's necessary? =)

I'm right there with Solomon. Wonder if they'd notice if I shut my office door and laid down on my nice blue rug?

Pansies are one of my favorite flowers because they give us color all winter! We had an unusual warm spell a couple weeks ago and our daffodils are coming up. That is bad because we should have a lot more winter before it's spring here!

Solomon is adorable! I love his name. Your Nine Snow Guys is so cute--great job! I don't think I've ever seen a white kale before--interesting--very pretty!

And the primrose is so pretty! I saw some for sale at Aldi today, but knew it would be too cold in my car before I could get it home....
