Happy Valentines ♥

We were given:
Two hands to hold.
To legs to walk.
Two eyes to see.
Two ears to listen.
But why only one heart?
Because the other was given to someone else.
For us to find.

Wishing you all a day full of love.

Winter Snow in Atlanta ~ February 2010

Atlanta Snow ~ February 2010
Was working at Vintage Village yesterday afternoon when the snow began ~
beautiful white flakes that covered the tree's & surrounding roofs in no time.

The drive home was gorgeous ~ the park across from our home had snowy tree tips
with the grass a blanket of snow.

Simply tranquil...

The bluebirds were filling their little bellies with suet so they
would stay warm overnight.

The snow continued to fall for hours.

Our Winter Wonderland

This morning ~ Sunshine showcases the bright white surroundings.

Atlanta Snow... What a glorious picture.
4 -5 inches fell in our area.
Working today at the village ~ we are opening at lunchtime.
The promise of more winter snow, ice in Atlanta the next couple days.
Stay Warm & Safe.

A Nannie Day...

A Nannie Day...
Some of my favorite days are those spent with my Mom.
Today, a trip we try to make about once a month.

The Forum
One of our favorite places to do a little shopping at some the best places.

Lunch at Jason's Deli
They have the best salad bar, deli sandwiches, soups
Little gingerbread muffins...
I'm hungry already.

Super H ~ We stop there on the way home. The best produce, bakery, fish market...
We always come away with a buggy full of delicious finds.

Trader Joe's is an always stop on our Forum shopping days. Chocolate croissant's, Lava Cakes,
fresh flowers, fabulous cheese... they have most anything. Today, Valentines treats are on my list. I'm sure they will have a great selection.

And all at great prices.

Wishing you a happy Tuesday. Ours will be a full day of shopping.
I enjoy all days with Nannie ~ when we are together shopping,
there's no telling what we might get into.

February 2, 2010 ~ Happy Groundhog Day~!

Happy Groundhog Day~!

February 2 ~ Groundhog Day. Close to where we live General Beauregard Lee
makes his predictions early each February 2. Isn't his Southern Mansion charming?
A lavish addition to Beau's white-columned Southern mansion is another major surprise. He owns an architectural water fountain; a postal box; a granite monument; a monogrammed lawn marker, sundial, doormat and a satellite dish that allows him to watch PBS nature specials. He has further enjoyed a broad jump and high diving board which readied him for The Olympics. It is alleged that Beau’s Official Mansion also includes a laptop computer for his prodigious correspondence and a Wine Cellar to recover from the
labors of His National Holiday~!
General Beau did not see his shadow when he emerged from his mansion at 7:35 a.m.
in the rainy 40 degree Atlanta weather. An early spring~ Yippee~!
I'm already making plans for the 2010 Hag Patio where blooms will abound.
I can hardly wait to sit there sipping morning coffee,
watching the birds feast on breakfast & feeding the fish.
An early spring, how exciting~!
