Flea Market Dreaming on a Winters Day

This is what it looks like out my back window.

So, this is what I am doing inside....


Dreaming of warmer weather, a healed shoulder and a flea market outing.

What are you dreaming about today?
Welcome Home,
Penny

WOW! What a winter wonderland! I was hoping one of our neighbors in the condo would send us a photo of the mountains! I'm going to Kohl's this afternoon...doing laundry this morning! Stay warm and enjoy your day! Hugs! ♥ PS I guess I wrote what I'm doing...not dreaming of! heehee! I'm dreaming of warmer temps and a day trip to the beach! I need some more shells for some projects! ♥

That's what it looks like here too - but I'm getting ready to power up my work laptop, do some work and hope that I can get to the office this afternoon.

Vee said...

Very pretty and kinda unusual for your back window view. Take care of yourself... Don't lift those heavy books!

Donnie said...

Great photos but too cold for us. Enjoy your reading.

Sounds enjoyable! I dreamt of a SF Hazelnut Latte'....so I went and got one! I love it when dreams come true!

Terri said...

I am dreaming about summer vacation... will I get one? That remains to be seen!

Adrienne said...

We are having rain - a wonderful respite from the 'freezing rain' of last night. Just plain, ol' Oregon rain! I'm enjoying the first full day at home for awhile and doing much needed things around the house. And dreaming of Spring - and my little vegetable garden - and the flowerbeds - and an outdoor project or two. It all spells w-o-r-k but I'm looking forward to that.

I'm simply being lazy, but need to get back to painting. I'm not to inspired to work when the weather tells me to get something hot to drink and curl up under a warm blanket to read a book.
Hugs,

That's a perfect day! We have a good amount of snow on the ground now which is always makes me happy. We had a 2 hour delay today so I am playing catch up and pouting because I missed my weekly knitting class this morning!

Hi Penny,
That looks like a pretty cozy place to be. We had a blizzard and it's still snowing. That fire looks so inviting.

Sounds good doesn't it? My shoulder is ok but other things hurt on me...lol. Reading in front of a fire sounds wonderful...dream on!~Hugs, Patti

All That Glitters said...

Me too Penny!!! When you get ready to head to that flea market you let me know!!! I want to go too!

Bella said...

It looks like a good way to spend the day! I hope your shoulder is continuing to heal. I love the idea for your staircase that you shared below; I always enjoy seeing interesting displays like that.

Hi Penny, your yard feels much lovlier than mine, and those books look mighty appealing in front of the fire! If you can believe it, I'm putting the last of Christmas away on my "snow day."

Kathleen Grace said...

I'm dreaming of having the time to read that stack of books and a reason why I can't do anything else, although not the same reason you are enduring thank you! I'm contemplating taking the doors off my cabinets today and getting started with the painting project....think I'll bite the bullet and do it:>)

Pat said...

What a lovely view.
I'm actually day dreaming about the same thing. The new HGTV program "Cash and Cari" originates in Michigan and I see she is having an estate sale not far from my home this weekend...and HGTV will be there filming. I'm thinking about going to it, depending on the weather.
Continue to heal and get well!

Julie Harward said...

That sounds wonderful, I love days like that. No dreaming here today, I have run since I got up this morning1 :D

Erin@likegrandmas said...

I am seeing similar. Dreaming...about more(not snow), what more, I don't know, just more. Yeh, that makes absolutely no sense.

Debbie said...

I`M SO GLAD TO HAVE FOUND YOUR BEAUTIFUL BLOG!
BY THE WAY... THE WEATHER HERE IN ENGLAND ISN`T AS NICE, EITHER!
CAN`T WAIT FOR SPRING TO ARRIVE!
I MISS LISTEN TO THE BIRDS SINGING!

Beautiful outside and warm and cozy looking inside.

Theanne... said...

I better hurry up and answer the question..."What are you dreaming about today?"...it's almost tomorrow...I've been dreaming about what I could do on my little patio to make it more private and charming...plants in pots...more chairs...that sort of thing...

Julie said...

Look about the same out of my back window! We haven't gotten above freezing all week and more snow is on its way!

Stay warm!

Hi Penny,
I just stopped back to share something right up your alley. A nice thing to dream about while you are recovering. Eddie Ross is looking for submissions:

Hi Penny, That snow scene looks all to familiar. Beautiful!!! Smile. I was dreaming of escaping the house and going to town. That dream came true. I am sitting in our town library playing on my laptop while waiting for Bill to finish his class at the college where he teaches. the college is right across the street from the library. Very convenient for the students. Then we will bowl on our league which was canceled from Tuesday to today. Our truck is the only way we got down our drive and he didn't have time to drive all the way back to our home (16 miles) to pick me up. So I'm waiting.

I did post a Good Will find today. Love that thrifting!!!
Hugs, Jeanne

Hi Penny,
The snow looks so pretty! but I know its cold...we don't get snow just a lot of rain, frost and fog..not fun driving in fog..
I am dreaming of the weekend so I can sleep in!Yep sleeping in is my dream..I get up at 2:45am for work...
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

see you there! said...

Looks like a delightful day is in store. Read a little, peek out the window at the snow, settle back and read a little more. Ideal!

Beverly said...

I'm always willing to dream a little dream with you.♥

Val said...

That's a wonderful dream and beautiful view.

Blooming Rose Musings said...

Your snow looks beautiful and I think reading by the fire would be perfect. We are having a slight warming trend here in Southern California so I'm dreaming of going antiquing this weekend.
I hope your shoulder is less painful as you continue to heal. Enjoy your wonderful books.

Mimi Sue said...

Exactly the same thing! Mimi

We still have snow on the ground today, a week later! I think looking at mountains covered in snow is so relaxing, good time for book reading! Hope your shoulder is doing better.
