19 degrees here with a wind chill factor bringing it much lower. So much for our mild winter. Still no snow in sight. This is a picture of the beach which is a few blocks from my office. Actually, as much as I may complain, it is a beautiful place to live. I live a few miles from the beach.
I was thinking of why I called my blog Violetlady at Home. In case anyone is curious -- my favorite flower is the wild violet, which was also my mother's favorite. My grandmother used to have violet cologne in a round bottle with violets handpainted on it. When she became very old she gave it to me. It was empty, of course, but now is one of my treasures. I have accumulated several violet related bottles and pictures. I even have some violet candy! Hence, violetlady, and At Home -- just because I love to be home, puttering, reading, etc. I guess I could have been licoricelady since I love black licorice, but that doesn't really have the ring to it, does it?
Have a beautiful day to anyone who reads this. My favorite farewell --- Happy Trails!!
