Dab of This and That.....

In December, I posted  I would be taking a bit of break.  However,  I did not realize how long of a break I would be taking.  Things happen, and the next thing you know.....Well - We all know how it goes.
Went in for regular follow up last Fall to have meds reevaluated, etc..  
The results:  Dang - Sure did NOT see that freight train coming !!!  
Time has gotten away:  Realized today, there is a pot of faux, orange mums still sitting on the table in the courtyard - "in February" ?!?
What daughter has been up to:  When not chasing after kiddos hectic schedules, appts.,  slinging those pots and pans, and the lists go on?
Putting those needles to work. 

 Same throw - colors just look different in pics.

 Finished !!
 Think she called this her "Happy Window" where she has some herbs and other plant cuttings taking root.  Planning ahead for Spring....
 Her rosemary plant  is doing well thru the Winter.  I never had much luck with one.

 Don't know about the rest of you:  But I need warmer temps.  We have not had the extreme cold temps other parts of the country have had so far this Winter, but cold enough. Pic where a relative lives...
Picture removed.
 No thank you - won't be visiting there any time soon.
Little Side Note - Self:   Do not spill a bowl of blueberries on a dark colored floor, at night - especially when the overhead light decides to blow the bulb.  Don't ask me how I know this tidbit of info..
Hope to be posting more in the near future.
Just another Dab of This and That.

Glenda - glad to see you back! Blueberries - I bet that made a mess. They really stain.

Hope your doctor's visit wasn't too bad.

You must get rid of the mums! LOL

I should do that too, root some plants in water. It was 72 degrees today but it is supposed to go down to 16 on Thursday night and 50 during the day. I guess I will cover the plants at night and bring the hanging planters in....Christine

Hi Glenda,

So good to see you back at your blog post. We miss seeing your dabs of this and that! Oh and it was so good to see you stop by my blog the other day. You always leave the sweetest most thoughtful comments. Thank you and hope your Spring is right around the corner!

Nice to see you back from your break!

I like your daughter's "happy window" I wish my kitchen window had a deeper ledge. It gets good sun so it would be perfect for some plants, but the ledge is so narrow all I can get on it are some tiny succulents.
