Welcome to Estelle's morning news....
Old Man Winter has arrived and we are doing our best
to make it cozy...
you can count on a hot breakfast,
after waking the house up about 5:30 AM
I think I must have inherited that from my Daddy
as he was always happy in the morning and would
often come into our rooms singing....."wake up you sleepy head...."
I ordered this lovely deep green beanie back in November....
and decided to order an essential oil diffuser.....
I placed ours in the foyer for now and our home
is filled with this subtle, yet wonderful aroma,
the vaporizer is also supposed to improve air quality, lift your mood
and relieve stress..how lovely is this during the winter doldrums!!!
who had a few days of rest and relaxation....
he was able to connect with long time friends in Dallas,
and watch the Cowboy game with us on Sunday afternoon...
we all had high hopes for the Cowboys to win a playoff game,
but alas, it was not meant to be.....a rather big disappointment!
We are so happy that these two have found each other.....
We will be meeting Otis in March as we are
finally getting to travel and use our saved tickets
from the cancelled trip back in 2020 when
the pandemic started and we had to cancel our trips
to both California and Atlanta!
Anytime an idea pops into my head, I'm grateful!
The Divine MISS M and Luke the Duke are coming
for a visit next month, and I'm busy planning menus
and decorating to entertain them!
We are beyond exited for their visit!
The wheels are in motion for creating
the last of Winter tablescape....stay tuned!
It feels like Christmas....we can all be together
except for the California kid. and one grandchild.....
I'm hosting a family dinner of Lasagna
a fresh Honeycrisp salad and Italian bread...
I'm also creating a cozy coffee corner for her.....
It's my practice to incorporate family heirlooms
in my vignettes, and I added my Mother-in-Law's
pair of these darling brass deer.....I have always loved these....
Do you enjoy creating a little cozy corner
for coffee..it can actually be rather fun
to choose a theme reflecting the season.
I love using pine cones in both fall and winter....
the house I grew up in was surrounded by
tall, majestic pine trees...they will always remind me of HOME!.
to move in........
I baked the best homemade Blueberry Pie on this winter afternoon.....
Everyone is happy when eating pie......

The Divine Miss M and Luke the Duke
went to see the new Spider Man movie on his day off school....
she's the best Mom ever!
and, I think it's a lovely way to spend a winter afternoon.....
