Hello March. What beauty will you bring me?

I think Francis was kissed by a snow angel today!
And how about his cap!?
When I let Zody out in the back, I spooked a bunch of deer up the hill!
They look like leaves, but you can see them in the middle of the picture.
As we went to get our mail, this is what the cute
Medicine Park shops looked like...
February is just about gone and I'm titling the month
"Partly Sunny and Partly Snowy"
We had beautiful warm days then polar winter blasts.
I'm reconciling the month already:
Cut my hair short
Attended a native plant workshop
Fermented sauerkraut (opening the lid tomorrow)
Greg sent me a singing Valentine
Cooked a few new dishes
Baked my boss a chocolate cake
Made homemade hair sculpting wax and ointments
|Rose, Lavender, Peppermint and Frankincense balms cooling|
The most exquisite thing transpired this month.
My heart is understanding things about Abba
God that my mind cannot grasp. It's so beautiful
and freeing to feel His love and adoration.
I don't have to do anything to motivate God -
I know that I'm the apple of His eye.
That is probably why I encountered a lot of 'random' hearts this month.

Much love and warmth to all.

Found Photo, Found Object and Encaustic on Panel
My February pride and joy. My sweetheart. She is going into my May exhibit
but will be the only piece labeled NFS. She's priceless to me. Her adorable,
beaming, cute, dainty, exuberant, friendly, giggling, howdy-do, infectious, jovial,
kindred, lovely, merry,,,, do you see how I could describe her preciousness from A to Z!?!
I had to give her a blue jean dress and blonde hair (colored pencil)
and a cowboy hat game piece which I found in a Texas Monopoly game.
The year 1910 was written on the photo.
Leonardo was very attached to his Mona Lisa painting
and I'm just as attached to my Daisy. ha ha!

Gosh it's been cold! So cold that it wants to creep into your bones!
So I made this soup tonight and I have to say, it was super delicious
and I feel warmed through and through. This may become a favorite.
Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup
2 tsps Ghee or butter
3 large carrots, chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 sm. onion, chopped small
1 tsp curry powder
1 3/4 cup vegetable broth (I just spray Braggs Liquid Amino into water)
14 ounces coconut milk
sea salt & coarse pepper, to taste
Put chopped carrots, onions, ginger and curry powder in a pot
with butter and simmer for about 5 min., then add vegetable broth
and simmer another 15 minutes, or until carrots are soft.
Allow to cool slightly, mash until pureed and add
coconut milk, heat back up. S & P to taste.

Kindness, warmth and peace to all of you....
