God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Bits and Bobs for Monday
We just got back from the pool. I have never gone to a pool in the winter and this winter is a really cold one so far. 11 degrees when we left home. We swim and then get out and side on the sidelines for a while... drying off. Then we get dressed and meet in the little lounge area for coffee to really warm up. Joe can start the car from the lounge.. and the seat warmers as well. (we are so spoiled) So, it isn't so bad.
I'm home now and ready to start the day. I just watered all the plants and after I post this...I'm going to clean the fridge and make room for things. We had a ham yesterday and all the left overs are in containers everywhere in the fridge.
I'm looking at my Susan Branch calendar for 2013...hanging on the wall in front of me.. I have always bought one of her's. I thought that this year I might just buy an Old Farmer's Almanac Gardening calendar. I got it in the mail and I like it, but it's not full of pretty things and cute pictures and words that only Susan does. . I'm going to have to hang that garden calendar in the mudroom and buy a Susan Branch 2014 calendar. It's really a work of art on the wall...and I get a lot of pleasure out of looking through it for the first time each year and then looking forward to turning the page to a new month. Susan Branch has a blog that you can access from my sidebar. I grab a cup of tea or coffee and sit to read her wonderful posts. I love her homey way of talking and her artwork is wonderful.
So after I leave here...it's off to Amazon (my partner in crime :) during the holiday season. I need to order that calendar to see if I can get it by the 1st of January 2014.
Have a simple day...
