Cozying in...

Long weekend already, and it hasn't really started. Mom's "sweet as sugar" hair stylist makes house calls. She came and gave Mama a perm. Her hairdo went from Al Sharpton ... Yikes! to a much cuter, short short curly do. I know that makes her feel better because she was much happier today.

I'm sitting up with the moon right now, the little half moon shining in the purple night haze. Don't know what's up with the weather around here with predictions of both snow and 65 degrees during the weekend. That can't be quite good on the old earth? It sure makes us glad to be inside with the furnace humming and the quilts fluffed up on the bed. I would have to say it is downright cozy in here. My candles are flickering, and I don't even see any cars right now on the highway. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

I just made a nice pot of cheesy potato soup for tomorrow's lunch. Yes, I did. Here after midnight, the onions, potatoes, celery, and stock just bubbling away, cheese melting and ...  I could go for a bowl right now! But I'll wait. Drinking a little Diet Coke instead. I know. Caffeine at one a.m. is not a good idea. Yet, it works for me.

Well, I have a little movie on my iPad that's calling to me...  I just love snuggling down under the covers with the house quiet and watching movies on the iPad. So crystal clear, so in my face I feel as if I'm right there in Middleton...  Yep. I found 'em on iTunes. "Keeping a good thought for ya!" You know who you are.

Whimsy and Hugs!

Glad your Mom got her perm...I am sure she feels better about herself.

Sounds like quite a weekend of weather there-snow and 60's. It is 15 here this morning with a high in the mid 30s today. UGH

I like those laptop movies, too. xo Diana

so glad for your mom's perm!! yes, how we look, matters, no matter what our age. you are super, to have had the hairdresser, do a home visit!

I checked out iTunes, but I have to download something, to get it on my computer. nope, no iPad here.

and I've been on line too long, to do downloading now. ,-) best wait for a rested and clearer head.

A little spa day does wonders for everyone's spirits, doesn't it, Gayla? So glad that your momma is doing well and is feeling pretty!

Let us know how your soup turns out. It sounds soooo good! Will you share the recipe?? :)

Have a peaceful evening, sweet girl - and a happy week!
