Amaryllis and a Winter Day Tea

Hello everyone,

It is another wintry day here today
with schools cancelled again.

You can see it is blowing snow out
the window of our sunroom.

                                                                             I have a few amaryllis either in bloom
                                                                             or close to blooming so it adds a cheery
                                                                             slash of color.
                                                                          Cookies and tea

                               It is nice to have the aroma of homemade
                                       bread as it is baking and a little granddaughter
                                    who wants me to help her knit a sweater for
                                    her these cozy winter storm

                             Thanks for visiting!

How sweet to help your granddaughter knit a sweater for her doll. I have six granddaughters, and we are in the throws of weddings, return travels back to college after winter break. I love my girls and enjoy watching them become fabulous women. Also on a weather note. We are enjoying a rainy day. After a summer of smoke and disaster from the Carr and Camp fires in Northern California, it's lovely to sit and listen to the rain.

Sounds as if half the continent had snow today. What a cozy spot and your amaryllis is beautiful.

What lovely colours in the flowers.

What an amazingly light and cheerful departure from your normal lovely look. But not a departure, really: gracious, light beauty. But different! The cheery cherry and cream! I love it! Do you share recipes? What, please, are those darling little round shortbreads? Are they lemon? Wanting to curl up in that furry chair with a good book and sockie-feet. :-)

I always look forward to your posts and photo's. Even when my day is hectic and cluttered with puppy toys, I get an idea on how to dress my space. We have had no snow accumulation in Western Pennsylvania so far this year, a flurry now and then. But it is now cold, more like our normal Winter. Love your blooms. So happy to see the sharing of skills and crafts. Knitting is such a lovely craft to learn. I am on a personal mission to pass on what I know to the next generation. I am a quilter. Have a lovely day, stay warm!
