this 'n that...

I have the winter doldrums. Dunno why, as winter in Dallas in no way resembles winter in the frozen north, either in Minnesota, where I grew up, or in Chicago, where I lived after that...and yet it's so. I have pots of beautiful blooming pansies on my patio, that I covered last night with towels to protect them from the freeze...and for the most part, the days are sunny even when cold...but I'm lethargic, and find my days consumed by working, commuting, eating and sleeping, with little time or interest for anything else. I need to snap out of it.

On a brighter note...I'm going to hear James Richman of the Dallas Bach Society play the Goldberg Variations at a small church in Oak Cliff on Sunday afternoon, and since I'll be in Oak Cliff anyway...maybe I'll have lunch first, at Hattie's...
just thinking about fried green tomatoes or Prosciutto wrapped black mission figs , with bleu cheese & walnut stuffing, cheers me up!

Alexis and I talked about pansies today, when we saw a rack of them at Lowes. I thought it was ironic that pansies are actually tough little things but a 'pansy' is referred to as a wimp.

I'm getting a bit of cabin fever too but we have a new grandbaby to fly out and see in Feb.

Enjoy the concert and yummy figs!

There's something about this winter, eveywhere. It just seems to be dagging on and on...and it's only (officially) less than a month old. Two more months of official winter. Ack!

sMy "r" key is apparently not functioning properly. Or maybe it's just me...

Woke up to a Blazing ONE DEGREE this morning...coffee and a fire in that order was the start of my morning.
I will be hanging curtains back up and trying to get some order back in the kitchen today...I will post photos of my "project Face lift" once completed. I still have the lower hall and what use to be a formal living room...( my office /dinning room) to paint.
Enjoy the concert....wished I could be there for lunch.
Love TJ
