Snow scene at night

My backyard view on Friday night, halfway through the big snow in Seattle. By morning, there was nine inches in my driveway. Now it’s Sunday, and more is falling!

Polka dot table cloth

I got a new polka dot oilcloth tablecloth. It works with my houseplants, so I am happy. My chair on the left, near my pile of newspapers.

Haemanthus albiflos

I call this the Dr. Seuss plant because it looks so wacky. Checking google images, I see it is sometimes called paintbrush lily. The flower is about 1.5 or 2 inches. It is a bulb related to amaryllis. Notice the tiny leaves in the dirt. Last year it set a few seeds, and I got one to grow!

A year of memories

I have posted about this Memory Jar before, but here it is again. A wonderful idea for your 2019 New Year!

Starting January 1, write good things that happen to you on little pieces of paper.

• Surprise gifts
• Accomplished goals
• The beauty of nature
• “LOL” moments
• Memories worth saving
• Daily blessings

Then on Dec. 31, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you this year.

Create a memory jar for the year. So fun to read at the end of the year!
