The Cozy Home... a day to rest...

 Today I am home with some kind of miserable sinus mischief, so it is a perfect day to cozy in and have a comfortable kind of morning...  I started the day with Gloria Jean's Keurig hot, hot coffee flavored with toffee...  not a bad beginning..  The warm cup against my face felt almost as good as the coffee tasted...
 Over the weekend I decorated a little for spring and Easter.  I realize it is almost two months until Easter, but signs of spring have been tempting us in the Midwest all winter long...  This chicken carriage drawn by a dapper white hare is a gift from my son...  He gave me a Christmas gift certificate to my favorite store ---- Randolph Mercantile!  I had hoarded saved  it until I went with friends over the weekend to the beautiful early weekend before their Spring Open House...
 The lighted house is from my own home.  My son brought it over a long time ago, and it has worked its way to a temporary home by the fire...  I love holiday decorations so much...

Mr. Bunny, a gift to Mom from a dear friend, presides over the mantel festivities... The little bottle brush tree sparkles on the end by a Snow Bunny....  from another friend to me! and a cute Marie Osmand Easter doll sits on Mom's side of the mantel...
Ahhh...  a perfect breakfast.  My mom spoiled me with a dish of warm, right-from-the-oven, cinnamon-y, white raisin rice pudding...  Food for the gods!  Our House Tour edition of Country Sampler arrived this week, and it's on my "to do list" today...  (Isn't that a decadent list?)  I just think it's a pity to be home sick, don't you?  Pitiful.... simply pitiful....

Hope you are up and 'at it' again soon. Hate to hear you are ailing. Cute easter decorations.
