Ready for Bed!
After being at work for one thing or another nearly every day for the past two weeks, I'm looking forward to a couple of days off and catching up on sleep!

Another watercolor sketch ~ this one of the fading tulips from last week.  I'd love to take a class in botanical illustration as my skills at painting flowers could use some improvement!

Since losing weight, I have the hardest time staying warm. This afternoon I'm cuddled up with a couple of cozy afghans and reading material! It's lovely to be reading about beautiful gardens. The one on the front of this month's English Garden magazine is so much like the sketches I've done of my dream garden that it's like seeing it come to life!

Time for Knitting
At last ~ an afternoon with no work, no classes, no meetings, no appointment, and nothing I need to study for.  Lovely to have a little time to knit!  Making a new pair of wrist warmers in natural colored wool.

Ponderosa and aspen trees behind my apartment.  Wondering where the snow is this winter.  Not that I'm complaining, just hoping we don't get a triple whammy in March!

Paperwhite blooms.  Love the hope that Spring will come that they bring on a cold day.
