We have a few neighbors and friends that like to garden. One of them brought us some fresh onions the other day.

I know I haven’t been posting regularly… I think I have a pretty good excuse. A few weeks ago, my husband came home from work on Friday night and told me that he was going to Prague the following Friday for some meetings. Prague! This same trip almost happened 6 months ago, but never solidified. This time, his airline ticket was already purchased.

Looking toward “New Town” from Charles Bridge

I have about a 48 hour conversation/battle in my head about the trip. Should I go? Is it even a good idea if I go? I mean, I still can’t walk very far or very fast. By Monday morning, I was searching for airfare and had booked my ticket.

We were only there 5 full days and saw as much as we could. I managed to come down with a terrible cold half-way through the trip, so half of it is sort of a blur. But it was worth it.  Everywhere you look you see something old and beautiful. 015Have you been to the Prague?

Sunday photos: Groundhog Day

Yes, I know everyone is tired of snow (even our friends on the Gulf Coast).

Here in Chicago, we’ve had some accumulating snow 30 of the last 39 days. We’re about to break a 20-year snowfall record, with more than a month of winter to go. Plus, it’s been below freezing nearly every one of those days, so it isn’t going away. It just keeps piling up. The snow I’ve piled up along my backyard walkway is now over hip-height.

But sometimes, it’s just pretty. (Shot at the North Park Village Nature Center.)

K … hmmm.  I always carry a pocket knife. But this knife is much more attractive to share. I traded for it at the June swap!

a beautiful hand forged knife that I swapped for back in June 2013
