Snowy Sunday

Enjoying a treat

The TV weather forecast on Saturday called for some freezing rain Sunday morning followed by rain. Imagine the surprise when we woke up Sunday to a fairly heavy snowfall with about an inch already on the ground!

Our herb and flower garden was a summer project that we worked on while staying “in isolation” avoiding the COVID-19 pandemic. With today’s snowfall it sure looks rather, ah, wintery. One thing about snow: your yard looks just as good as the always  perfect yard down the street.

We’re still waiting for our chance to get the coronavirus vaccine. Here in Indiana you have to be 70 or above to sign up for the vaccine. Neither of us are 70 yet, but we will be in the next group, be it 60+ or 65+, assuming they won’t change which group is next to be allowed to get the vaccine. We are anxiously awaiting our chance to receive the vaccine. We, like everyone, are anxious to get back to being able to safely travel and to visit family.

This one was really hard

Cinque Terre, Italy

This is the second puzzle we put together. This 1000 piece puzzle was a lot harder than the first thousand piece one we assembled a few weeks ago. It was really a challenge, and did provide a fun task to perform while still needing to stay safe from the virus.

We are hoping that we’ll be able to get the first of two COVID-19 vaccines within the next few weeks. Hopefully the distribution and start of the dispensing of the vaccines will be a signal of the beginning of the end of this damned pandemic.

Continue your vigilance and stay safe! Happy New Year!

Shop local for fruit of the vine

 

We like to support local wineries as opposed to buying in supermarkets. These two Indiana wineries are within an hour’s drive, and we enjoyed getting out for a while.

These two wines are limited edition holiday runs. The spiced red is good at room temperature or heated. The Christmas cherry is a delightful sweet wine. Notice the red nose on the buck on the label. Cute touch…

Drink responsibly. Don’t let your guard down and stay safe from the virus. 

Awwww……. is what you’ll say

This is a very cute and fuzzy kitten I saw on my walk today. Two of its littermates took off and hid when they saw me. This little guy just hopped up on a step and turned to look at me. Then he slowly sauntered off like he owned the world.

The pandemic is still going strong. Don’t let your guard down friends!

Pumpkin’s watery grave

This Jack O Lantern probably graced someone’s front porch last weekend for Halloween. Even though you can’t see the face, the top removal is evidence of some decorative artwork. How or why this pumpkin found its way into the center of this shallow river is a mystery.

No more campaign ads, now we just have to get through the counting and lawsuits. Be safe! COVID’s getting worse just about everywhere. 

Carpet of leaves

A true sign of fall can be seen in yards and forested areas. A carpet of leaves has developed in our yard as can be seen in the image.  You can barely see the fence and mulched bed circling the maple tree.

Continue to follow recommended safety precautions. Avoid the virus.
