The Ice Storm That Wasn't
The mega gigantic ice storm that was supposed to hit Thursday night fizzled. We twice had a little ice overnight that melted in the morning. Missouri was closed on Friday, so I got a day at home I wasn't counting on, which was much appreciated, but which turns out was unnecessary. I don't mind, though. I've been running on all cylinders since the beginning of December and an extra-long weekend was just what I needed.
Around my house since Christmas~
The amaryllis is finished, but the paperwhites are coming on. I meant to plant these in time for them to be blooming about now, but note the above paragraph. . . I love to have flowers blooming indoors at this time of year!
We had a cold snap right after Christmas and got a little snow. The woods and the pond are beautiful this time of year! (Not that I was actually outside when I took this. Brrrrr!)
Dave is now the proud owner of a canjo.

Spending the night at Grandma and Grandpa's 😊
This tree is five or six years old, we think, and it's blooming for the first time! It's either a lime or lemon tree. I guess we'll find out when the fruit appears. . .
