A Beautiful Blast of Yellow

It's officially the first Monday work day of 2009! Whoo hoo! As I was moving through my morning rituals with 3 cats and a lab I saw this glimmer of yellow out of the corner of my eye. Lo and behold my little rose is blooming. My kids are always trying to keep me young, and for my birthday last year they gave me a VW bus planter with the word "Hippy" on the back license plate.It was a lot of fun and made me smile. The colors are bright and wonderful and inside was a miniature yellow rose bush. This made my heart melt. Last night we had another 2" of snow, which you can see in the background, but my rose is blooming. Can you smell it?

No Time Like The Present

This seems like the perfect day to start a blog. There have been more exciting days recently with this wild weather we've been having in the Pacific NW. There was at least 18 inches all around our house. It was beautiful. A bit of a challenge to get out of our steep driveway, but it forced me to stay home and melt glass! My favorite thing to do. Boomer seemed to enjoy it outside!
