With all the easter bunny things in the store I guess its not all that far away. I sure wish they wouldn't put those chocolate easter eggs on sale so early ... the Cadbury or Hershey ones in the hard candy coloured shell.  I love those.  It's torture going into the stores and having to bypass those all the time..... 

An Easter image for you to snag if you wish...
I never could figure out what bunnies and eggs had in common....
but the Victorians sure had some lovely illustrations going on back then.

Just changed my background as you can see.... nothing nicer than having tea with some friends ... sharing some cake from your tiered cake plate ... or enjoying some of my spectacular Aussie "biscuits" called Tim Tams.  They had a sale on them last week in town so I got 10 packets.  They are so yummy.  If you see them about grab them quickly because you'll be wanting to go back and get some more.   .............  Snow has been falling over the past couple of days.  Building up today so we had to shovel and then shovel some more.  But I guess Spring is getting closer .. I can't believe its nearly the end of February already and March will be here.    A little card for you below to stash in your folders if you are saving the pretties from my blog.  Click on it to see it original size and save it from there.....

Loved the British mini series "Downton Abbey"... last episode for this year was on PBS last night.  Magnificent scenes of interiors and stunning dresses and much more.   I still have my flu ... darn thing I hate it.... all the coughing and sneezing is getting in the way of being creative for my Etsy Shoppe   :-)    A desktop wallpaper for you ... click on it to see it larger and install it or save it from there.  Soft and pretty and of course with one of my little bears....

Whitney's so called private funeral is turning into a celebrity concert.  Yikes!! How can it be private when its going to be televised.  I'm up early this morning .. still dark outside... but when you have to pee in a bottle for some tests ordered by the doctor .. you don't get much sleep wondering whether you are going to forget to do that task.  Besides, this darn flu I have developed is keeping me awake. If I'm not coughing, I'm all stuffed up or sneezing... I hate having the flu.  I hope you all are fine and healthy and happy and enjoy reading my blog.. Now that would make me feel better....  :-)

Is the hat big enough !!!   Love it...
Sad news about the death of Whitney Houston but the only surprise really is that it didn't happen years ago.  Drugs were her downfall and its reported today that she was broke having spent millions upon millions on drugs.  Beautiful voice, but it makes you wonder what these famous people think they are lacking that makes them depressed and in need of stimulants like alcohol and drugs of any kind.  They seem to have it all yet act like they have nothing.
Rest in Peace Whitney... I loved your songs.

My silly Dozer dog being stupid with the squirrel in the yard.  They do this every day. Squirrel waits till Dozer has turned around and then he jumps down onto the bird feeder. Then Dozer chases him away.. and the squirrel waits till Dozer has his back to him and tries again to come down and get the sunflower seeds.  So funny ....
:-) It was nice watching them this morning out on the ice but with the sun shining.
If the squirrel didn't make such a noise I don't think old Dozer would even know he was there.  The first time I heard a squirrel I had no clue what was making such a racket... sometimes his little voice is so loud.

I've been watching the wonderful show on PBS called Downton Abbey.  Gorgeous mansion or castle settings, dresses to die for, magnificent interiors, stunning story, absolutely spectacular.  From upstairs to downstairs there's deceit, grandeur, love, hate, twists and turns and much more.  It began with the sinking of the Titanic and the loss of a family member, then came love stories, dramas, world war I, deaths and births.... great show... love it love it....  2 hrs this weekend so that will keep me busy whilst the snow is coming down in British Columbia.  :-)  Check it out if you can... its been highly anticipated and is a megahit.

I hate it when the power suddenly goes off. My computer went black .. lost the things I was doing.... urgh!!! I'd nearly finished the gift cards (picture above) for my Etsy Shoppe ... when boom ... gone ...  They are very pretty so check them out from my store if you would like them. Reasonable priced and quite gorgeous .. even if I do say so myself..  lol.....

Then I noticed the television was gone.  Shut down and I dread having to deal with getting the satellite signal and screen up and going again.  They make the tv settings so difficult you need to be a tv nerd to even find the right options.  Thank goodness my darling hubby is returning tonight.  I'm completely lost without him.

The little bluebird I just added to my right hand column....  I remember back when I first arrived in Canada and my hubby told me all about Yahoo groups and showed me other things I could do on the computer ... the little image was amongst the first things I ever saw and I fell in love with it immediately.  It was cute and sweet ... now I just found it again in my zillion folders and files ...  so of course I just had to add it to my blog.

Click on the card if you want to save it .. it will come up larger...
Well January already has come and gone... wow !  they sure turn over pretty quickly. 
Today was lovely and sunny and I spent an hour in my garden chair perched on the snow watching the dog barking at the deer, the squirrels and the birds ... and of course next door's cat.  It's quite a menagerie out there.  Doctor said I need more sunshine .. (vitamin D) so I did my best today whilst the sun was shining to get some of it.  He also said most of the northern hemisphere was suffering from a lack of vitamin D.  I think he said everyone north of Minnesota  ...  so I guess I should say roll on spring and summer and then I can sit on my deck with old Dozer dog having our lunch and watching the grass grow... being retired is oh! so nice.....
