Thunder is rumbling in the distance. It is rainy and cold. Not a day when you’d want to go out.
I cooked a pot roast in the crock pot Saturday, so I shall have leftovers for a few days. Sandwiches and maybe stew will be on the menu after that.
Gardening thoughts are behind me now until late winter. Much of what remains out on the patio has dried up and turned brown.
A few plants are still bravely blooming. But after this weather that’s forecast for the next few days, I surmise they will be gone as well.
I have the heating pad behind me in my chair. And Charlie is curled up sleeping between my legs.
Ivy has been running about and playing all morning after she ate her breakfast. She likes to take her furry toys and put them in their water bowl.
And I keep digging her toys out and laying them on paper towels on the kitchen counter to dry them out.
From time to time she jumps up on top of this piece of furniture and stares out the window at the weather outside.
The rain pouring from the cloudy gray sky obscures whatever else there might be for her to see.
It is once again a cozy day when I shall stay in, as I did yesterday. I’ll listen to the rain fall on the roof and be glad I am warm and dry inside with Charlie and Ivy.
A Table & Lamp:
Yesterday I decided to do something a little different. I had nowhere for the white table with the fancy scroll work to go. So I brought it in here. Which gave me a good surface so I could bring a lamp in.
That side of the room is always dark and I wanted to light it up a bit.
This lamp has been in my closet for ages. I bought it while still in Texas. I love the shade of green of the lamp base coupled with the wicker type shade.
I have the heat turned way down because the fireplace puts out so much heat.
Seems to me when I purchased the fireplace last year it said it would warm about 1000 square feet. And I can attest to that being true.
I ordered it from Lowes, who got it from another company. It was under $200 with tax and I’m very pleased with it.
It is on rollers, so you could move it about your home quite easily. I give it 5 stars out of 5.
What is it like in your neck of the woods?
