Dreary Days

Dreary Days of winter. Cold and rainy. What to do?
Bake , write and read and play cards.
I took these pictures of my orchids yesterday, when it was sunny out but very cold.
Don't you just love orchids?
They bloom in the dead of winter adding bright color to any window or shelf.

I decided to bake a blueberry cake. I had the blueberries, so it won out over cookies. Mom and I will enjoy it with a cup of tea. The top gets a light crust with the cinnamon sugar sprinkled on it. Bob will get a pork roast with fried apples on the side.

I just took the cake out, it smells wonderful! I'll save you a slice!
Mom is napping in the recliner with 2 of my 5 cats on her lap.
I think I'll get my book out and finish it!

How do you keep the cats from demolishing the orchids? or are your cats just better behaved than mine?

they never touch my house plants, probably because they go out or come in as they please during the day..thats probably it...I don't think they are better behaved!

You do have a green thumb, don't you?
