Out and About.....

As recovery continues here, I thought I would share a few sights seen both in the house, at LM's and around town....I've been trying to get out for a short walk each day, even though it has been very cold.  Meanwhile, Ms G is up to her usual antics...all taking place right beside LM's chair and designed to keep his full attention.




 
Three cats!!

 
She was caught red-pawed getting in to some things on the kitchen counter, and quickly switched to washing her face, thinking we wouldn't suspect bad behavior.
 
Meanwhile, at my house, I made some new valences for the windows in my sitting room. 
This nice Williamsburg fabric had been hanging around my fabric collection for a number of years and it finally told me it needed to be hanging above the windows instead!  Voila

 
On Friday morning I needed to be in Orleans early for bloodwork. When I was finished, the sun was trying valiantly to warm the day, so I decided to take in the sights at Rock Harbor on the bay side of Cape Cod. It was not surprising to find the harbor filled with ice...a dramatic scene and beautiful.

 
I walked around the harbor for about 20 minutes....



 
Love finding feathers and left it right where it wished to be.



 
The photos couldn't capture the undulation of this ice, and the group of gulls riding up and down.


 
As I made my way back to the car I noticed these trees, their northeast facing sides, blown away , from the severity of the winter winds. 
 
Still feeling energized after my walk, I drove to TJ Maxx and spent an hour walking around looking to see what I have been missing all these months. Found this nice rag rug for in front of my sink.

 
and, a pretty taupey-beige purse for the Bahamas trip.
 
Each day I can feel strength coming back, and still have little reminders of all that has happened recently....just waiting to see the pulmonologist on Tuesday to clear me to go back to work!!
Meanwhile, tonight, I am waiting for the Oscars to come on, and am enjoying reading "The Goldfinch."
 
Hope you've all had a nice weekend....love, peace and happiness to all!

Ms. Graysea sure knows how to show her stuff! She's a smart one, too. The splash of red is beautiful at the window. And your harbor photos make me long for the ocean ~ So glad you are feeling better.

I am so glad to hear you are on the mend and out and about taking some lovely shots. Your landscape is very similar to here. I love the ice on the water, all the incredible patterns.

Love your window and have wondered if I should do something like this - as in the past.
Now, just nothing at the windows
but kind of like it.
Love the rug also and if I saw one like it - would purchase :)
Take care
and continue to heal...

I love the drapery material you made! Was it a Waverly print? I had some made for the bedroom mom was in - café curtains. It is tan with similar flowers all colours! I love it. I loved it so much I put them in Mom's bedroom in her cottage with gold 80" curtains. Ms G is a character!! lol It's unreal all the ice in the water. Sorta pretty, but strange looking. Also like your new rug. I see you love red!! I do too!! And I love your new purse!! I hope your not overdoing it by walking in the cold air. That concerns me....BE CAREFUL!! Good luck at the Doctors apt. tomorrow! Let us know!!...debbie

Thank you everybody....the valance fabric was a remnant of Windham decorator fabric....the Williamsburg Collection. I have a friend who does a lot of decorating and the remnant was in a huge bag of fabrics she gave me a few years ago. It was exactly enough to do the two windows I had. I don't like full curtains as I love the light and being able to see what is happening outside. The fabric is a little "pinker" than it shows in
the photos.

So glad to hear that you are feeling better. I have a young friend of 21...who is experiencing the same thing as you. She is in the hospital right now. She has a little baby at home.....Hopefully her outcome will be as good as yours.
