Red Grapes



I'm watching the snow fall heavily outside my window. It's coming down at a slant. And the weatherman tells me that there's ice underneath all the fluffy stuff. Not, I gather, the best day to do my massive mission of errands across town. Darn it! That's all I was thinking about last night, or rather, this morning, when I couldn't fall back asleep after his 2AM bottle. I was going to go to IKEA first, get a highchair and some rugs, stop over at Micheal's for some craft stuff I desperately need, then drop the car off at the corner repair shop for an oil change. I was then going to go over to the hardware store to get a lamp fixed and buy a toaster (our old one died over the weekend--amazing how often we used that thing!). But now, I'm going to watch the snow, listen to my Pink Martini station on Pandora and pray he's a good napper today!

Hope you're safe and warm and cozy this morning!

XOXO,
Jewels

PS The red grapes are from this weekend--the afternoon light hit the bowl of fruit and suddenly they seemed like jewels!

I like the way the light hits these fruitful jewels. Beautiful! Sometimes, someone else has other ideas different from what we thought our day should be, so take the time to enjoy my friend. xo

Wow, I haven't busted out Pink Martini in awhile. I'll have to remedy that :)

The snow here has eased to a floating swirl. Equally as beautiful and lulling me into a tranquil coma.

There is a chocolate shop in Salt Lake City, where they dip their grapes in dark chocolate and keep and ship the cold.

Cheers!...to enjoying all that you have.
