1. Houseplants! I planted my amaryllis bulbs (purchased two years ago) before Christmas and they are just starting to grow leaves. At the same time I also replanted some garlic cloves that had started to sprout. These were also free from my garden. It's almost... therapeutic for me to see green things in the dead of winter.
3. Our bird feeder. My parents gave us this for Christmas several years ago. A few weeks ago we put some bird seed in it and our feathery friends have been LOVING it! I like to watch the birds while nursing baby. We see a lot of cardinals and blue jays, plus some other birds that I'm not familiar with. Did you know that blue jays have the capacity to mimic different bird calls; even human speech? I thought that was pretty cool. I love seeing the red and blue feathers pop out against the whiteness of the snow
4. Herbal tea and hot baths. It's cold here; REALLY cold! Like below zero some days! So warm water in various forms and applications has been much enjoyed.
Apart from those things, we've still been busy with parties and get-togethers and such. I hope you are all having a wonderful year's end.
Til next time,
