Bright sun, blue skies.....

Morning, all. The sun is shining in the Alps, and the sky is deep blue, the snow is white, and I have some coffee. Coffee is wonderful. I am almost taking it intravenously at the moment. I can see a paraglider hovering over the valley from the window next to me as I write. Everyone should have a view like this outside their window. One of God's mega masterpieces. Mum is watching the tennis with her tea, and my hair has been tamed. I lost the adapter for the straightners this morning, and closely resembled the Wild Woman of Borneo for a while there. It was not a good look.

We should have been arriving back home around now, but clearly, we are not. I have lost track of how many air tickets I have bought and then not used for one reason or another. Ho hum.

So....

The crocheting. I spent the evening finishing off all the things I have made so far. Sewing in the ends. I am really pleased with the way the flowers have turned out, and the ripple cushion will look great when I finally make it up. I may sew a flower or 2 onto that as well. It will look good with the Happy Quilt. Today, I think I will make stars. It is never too early to plan for Christmas, after all. And if my brother-in-law is home at lunch time, I may just go for a short walk around the lake with my camera. I want to be out in the fresh air a while. Maybe that would wake me up! My snow boots and Leki poles have to have been 2 of the best investments ever. The sun is now creeping into this room - beautiful.

Nap or stars? Hmmmmm.............

Hmmmm....I vote for stars! Hope that you also get that fresh air walk.

Oh I vote for stars because you're going to describe it for us in the most delicious of ways as you always do and how would you describe something from a coma? I also vote for your staying put (in the Als) for some weeks to come.

Nonononononono. I know you were being flippant but IT IS too early to plan for Christmas.

Glad that you're sounding cheerier.

I think a nap is in order and then please go and take beautiful pictures. I can never get enough of that amazing place.

I am so thankful you are getting some sunshine - good for the soul! And the beauty of the Alps - what a balm. I can tell the difference in your "voice."

Have a wonderful day and week-end!
