Winter Slipped In

We had freezing weather Monday night.  It had been comfortably warm for several weeks.  I planted tomatoes, peppers and fragile herbs. When I learned it was going to freeze, I covered every thing, in hopes of protecting the plants.  Then there was a frost last night.  The tomatoes and peppers suffered some damage, but I believe they will pull through.  I lost one basil plant, the rest did fine.  There are not supposed to be any more freezes for the rest of the spring.  One just never knows what the weather may decide to do.

My current employment petered out, so I am one of those unemployed that we are hearing so much about.  I have experience in a number of fields.  I have been a travel agent,  insurance agent, and customer service agent.  I have worked as a trainer in my field.  I was a reservation manager for Alaska Airlines.  I would like to find something where I can work from home.  Most of those positions are for computer gurus, which I am not.  I am proficient in most of the applications and take care of my own IT work here at home, but I don’t have the expertise for a profession.  I would like to obtain that expertise but it is not feasible at this time.

I am a starving artist.  I do have a web site at http://www.norasartcache.com.  Go check out.  Maybe you will see something you like.

My lilacs are in bloom.  I love how they fill the air with such a sweet fragrance.  The butterflies always come to visit when the lilacs are in bloom.  I have added a photo so you can share this with me.

Thoughts for this day

It is a cold November morning in my corner of the world.  I have been trying for weeks to get this blog started.  I wasn’t sure how to go about it…and I am still not sure, but I decided to jump in anyway.  I may be making some changes as I gain more experience.

I actually have two other badly neglected blogs.  One is here on WordPress entitled “Fullfilled Prophesy.”  I haven’t done much with it either, but I am resolved to do better because that subject is dear to me.  I know you will notice that I have fulfilled mispelled.  I didn’t catch it until it was too late, so I will have to live with it.  The other blog is on Blogspot.  It is “Nora’s Art Cache.”  I haven’t posted on it for a long time either.  I plan to move it to WordPress so all my blogs will be at the same location.

I am an early riser.  I like to go out on my patio with a cup of green tea and feel the day emerge.  The stars are still sparkling in the heavens  when I sit down.  I can gaze into the universe and marvel at the handy work of my God.  Soon the sky to the east begins to lighten and the stars disappear one by one.  The deep purple of the heavens turns cerulean then azure as the sun begins to peak over the horizon.  Clouds glow in peach and apricot attire.  The birds begin to sing at just the right moment before sunrise, praising God for the new day.  Belle, my little Maltese, checks out the yard then comes an asks to sit in my lap.  Together we watch the day begin.

There is a valley beyond my back yard with a stream meandering down the middle which then rises to a low hill.  It is covered with hardwood trees.  This time of year the hill has on her autumn finery of gold, orange, red and rust.  The valley is a pasture where cattle graze sometimes and if I am lucky, I will see deer grazing there, too.
