Morning light, consider the lilies and socked in

- My church held its annual Kirking of the Tartans service last Sunday.  This photo was from Saturday morning, when a group of church friends and I hung the tartans (borrowed from the local St. Andrew's Society.)  I loved how it all looked in the morning light when we were done.

- These are the lilies from the bouquet I showed in this post.   They were crowding that bouquet after they finally started opening up, so I pulled them out and gave them their own vase.  They look so pretty, I think. 

- That is ice, not snow.  Yes - we are socked in again, but this time local officials were overly cautious and closed the Atlanta area way earlier than the last time.  I've got that Sue Grafton book to finish and tons of kale to figure into recipes, so I'm all good here.  Cheers, y'all!

Good to hear you are indoors, Lynn! They are predicting 12 inches of snow for us BUT~no snow thus far! The roads are dry.

LOVE the morning light and the lilies.
Stay warm, and enjoy your time hunkered down with a book. Bliss.

I've been following what's been happening in Atlanta. It was a relief to see a picture of one of the interstates with NO cars on it:~) I hope you are keeping warm and toasty. All it's doing here is RAINING...YUCK.

I love the lilies and I bet they appreciated you moving them to give them room.

Your picture of the church is really pretty:~)

I hope things will get back to normal soon. Enjoy your day at home.

Nice decorating job there- Maybe you should home decorate for a second income! I'm part Scottish so always like tartans n plaids. Beautiful Lilies this time of year. Hope mine reboot this spring on the deck-
Hope the storm is much kinder to you Southerners this round- n the power stays on! Reading Sue Grafton is always fun.

I heard it actually made sense in your metro area - they had people leave in groups by area. Here, everyone fled all at once.

Keep warm and stay safe as I hear you're really getting whacked with the snow/cold weather.

It does not look like you are getting any breaks this week. You have really had it tough. I am sorry to report that our temps are climbing into the 50's finally. It makes me feel so joyful that I just might die of joy. The thought of losing the shivers and shakes is too thrilling. Just know that the same is ahead for you too very soon. Glad Sue Grafton will occupy your mind.

lg -

From the look of your blog photos, it arrived!

Leonora -

I got a second day off - loving that. :)

Elephant's Child -

Thank you. And I am hunkered in with a book - it is true bliss.

Sara -

Yes - everyone stayed home for the most part. It's almost eerie, seeing those news reports with no cars on the interstates.

Snaggle -

My sister always wants me to decorate her home, but I tell her it would only look just like mine. :)

My power is on and I am loving this book.

Riot Kitty -

I hadn't heard they had people leave in groups by area - what I do know is that they asked everyone to stay home Tuesday - Thursday who could, so that worked out great. It only rained on Tuesday and the temps stayed above freezing, so it was oddly ghost town like when I made my way home at 5pm.

G -

Yes - whacked is good word for it. It's melting right now though.

Granny Annie -

I'm so glad it's warmer today for you! I feel joy for you.

Are you de-icing now? HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! sandie♥

LL Cool Joe said...

My partner is Atlanta at the moment, so I hope it doesn't snow too much!

Your church looks a lot my traditional, but more beautiful too, than my boring looking church!

Lee said...

What a beautiful colour those lilies are.

Keep warm, Lynn. :)

Lynn said...

Sandie -

Yes - still a lot of ice around though.

Joe -

There was still ice in spots around yesterday. I hope your partner has a nice visit. I got caught in some terrible midtown traffic yesterday - I wonder if some event was going on?

Lee -

Yes - a delicate pink. So pretty.

Hi Lynn .. heard about the snow - and authorities can never get it right! Still sounds like you have plenty to keep you occupied .. the book, then the kale will help with your eyesight ..

Cheers Hilary
