Colors to get lost in

Living in a sea of snow makes me yearn for a bit of color.

Colors that make you forget all about the wind blowing the snow around so hard the poor dog must be accompanied outside to do his duty…perhaps he is afraid he will blow away…or get lost in a blizzard.

Peacock feathers so pretty

A long package arrived in the mail.  It was for Far Guy. I figured the Class of 1968 Graduation Tassel was for him and the rest of the package was for me.  We argued a bit about it..mine..is not..is so.

Color Peacock feathers

I put them in a vase.  I photographed them…I am drinking in their beautiful colors.  All the way from California just for me.  Peacock Feathers

They are a bright spot of color on the fireplace mantle, I am certain I am enjoying them far more than my husband so they must be mine.  Thanks a bunch to a weekend rancher in California!

Far Guy is feeling much better today, I just have to keep him hydrated and resting throughout the day and I think he will make a full recovery.

  2. What a clever gift, and so perfect for this time of year.
    I love the logic - the person who's enjoying the gift most must be the intended giftee!

  3. Those are gorgeous, and must be so cheering! We all need a bit of color to offset all the white outdoors. Have a great weekend.

  4. Those peacock feathers are BEAUTIFUL! Glad to hear Far Guy is starting to feel better. I thought the ice caves looked like a great outing too and checked a few weeks - the timing wasn't good and now I agree there are too many people and could be a very long day with the Lake Superior winds. Happy weekend

  8. Glad to hear Far Guy is on the mend. So far we have been lucky and avoided any colds or crud. What a lovely colourful gift, they are on the mantel where you can both share them:)
    We have some very light snow falling this morning, but it will only be a small amount and won't last long.
    I checked out the pictures of the ice caves, they are beautiful, but the cold and all those people would probably put me off too. On our drive home yesterday we did see lots of frozen waterfalls hanging off the rocks.

  17. They are definitely a bright spot in a white day! I'm thinking of buying myself some flowers tomorrow for that purpose. Peacock feathers will last longer though.
