All on a Winters Day


mosaic with scrapbook paper

All the leaves are brown
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
I've been for a walk
On a winters day
On a winters day
Id be safe and warm
Id be safe and warm
If I was in l.a.
If I was in l.a.
California dreamin
California dreamin
On such a winters day

Can you hear the music.    It wasn’t California but it was a beautiful sunny and snowy morning.   I was out shoveling the drive way and just enjoying the sun on my face.  We haven’t had much sun lately.    St Francis had a snowy white cloak on to keep him warm. The birds were atwitter.    The plume of the seed head on the Goat’s Beard look beautiful with a blue sky background.   The goldfinches are enjoying the sun and the Niger seed in the feeders.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

We have a full week of appointments for my husband at Southlake Cancer Centre this week.   Since finding out that he has Cancer in the Esophagus we have had many of these appointments.   I am praying that all will be well and he can be cured.   For the moment he is too weak to do much and I am learning skills that I never had to bother with before.

I am joining with Mary for Mosaic Monday.   Valerie

Yes I could hear the music. It was also very windy here so it made it quite chilly when I was outside. Hoping things go well for your husband. One of our neighbours just went through all the treatment and fingers crossed the cancer was removed.

One of my favorite songs from the 60's. Beautiful mosaic Valerie. I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's cancer and wish him well. Prayers for healing for him and strength for you both. God bless. Pamela
I will keep your husband in my prayers, and you, too, my friend! I know it's a hard time. Love your snowy photos and the song! ♥

I am so sorry about your husband, that is really tough news but there is so much they can do for cancer, there is hope. Your mosaic is beautiful--the photo of the bench is just exquisite. Hope this week goes well for you,
Wonderful song to accompany your such a pretty mosaic!

California dreaming .. remember it! A little sunshine would be good for us all. Best wishes to you and your husband. Cancer of the esophagus is a difficult battle to wage ... for everyone.

I'm sorry to hear about your husband's cancer, Valerie. This is a difficult time for both of you. I pray that you will be strengthened each day.

Love the snow scenes. We've seen very little of the white stuff around here.
A wonderful mosaic!
Have a great week,
Sorry to hear about your husband Val.

A very fine post and a lovely mosaic.
Hi Valerie
I am so sorry to hear about your husband's cancer diagnosis. I will keep you both in my prayers that he will have successful treatment. There are so many advances being made all the time so keep hope!
Your mosaics are beautiful! i really like the view of the snow filled bench from above.

Thank you for your advice on my hairstyle. I will definitely have hair and make up done the wedding day professionally --my daughter already hired soemone to do that for us both. It will be a fun treat!
I'm wishing you and your husband well as he goes through his treatments, Val. There is plenty of cause for hope, these days.
My prayers are with you and your husband.

Blessings for your husband as well as for your family as he goes through the treatments~ Happy Valentine's Day~

Take care. I know you will find an inner strength you never knew you had.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
