Grateful for each day...

What a beautiful weekend we had here. The temperatures were mild and the sun was out! Today is cloudy but that's alright, we can't have sun every day. JP took this picture of the remains of my snowman.

Yesterday morning I looked out on our front porch at a planter that I filled with Pansies and behold, there were flowers!! I couldn't believe it and had to take a couple of pictures. After all the snow and frost heaped on these plants they were blooming. I was just so happy to see these little signs of plant life. Why are they call Pansies when they are so tough?

Yesterday afternoon, Spaceghost found a sunny spot on the bales of straw and took a nap.

Today I'm ordering the seeds I need for spring planting. I can hardly wait. We are grateful for the blessings of each day and send blessings to you from the holler.
As an addendum to this post I'd like to explain our cat's name if I can. When he came to us via drop off he was almost white on his body with a dark head and feet (oh and blue crossed eyes) so we thought that reminded us of Spaceghost. Space ghost was a comic and then in the '90's had a T.V. show called Spaceghost coast to coast. Maybe these pictures will job your memory!



YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Thank you for reminding us to be grateful for each day.
Those pansies are will be another month before we get to see any colors.

Oh, your poor sad. But he will be back next year, I'm sure!
Your pansies are beautiful...and so is Spaceghost. Is there a story behind that name?
Glad to hear you are ordering seeds - I just started planting some of mine (indoors)!

Oh no snowman!! Yet, love the warmth of the sun. Ordering seeds sounds wonderful, spring is on its way!
Enjoy the sunny spot Spaceghost!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
