Corner View: Warmth

For warmth, we have several throws and quilts on hand in the living room.  The first one shown was given to me by my son and his kids at Christmas.  It is luxurious and so warm!  When I have to sleep in this recliner because of arthritic/fibromyalgia issues, I burrow under this 'throw' and fall asleep nestled in warmth.
Beside the recliner is a big basket of more warmth.  There is a fluffy throw, a quilt, and a crocheted afghan (made by my mother).  The grandchildren grab these to wrap up in.
The last pic shows the throw I keep on the couch for Mike.  If he lies down on the couch, he pulls that over him.  The quilt shown in the last pic on the top of the couch is to protect it from the cats that love to lie there.  There is a blanket covering the sitting part of the couch also because of the animals.

Corner View: Homemade

i don't have anything homemade as in cooked or baked.  So I went with handmade with help from Snapfish.
 I was in a hurry when I took these, so the  photos of all these cards could be better.  The light is not as good as it should be. But I'm showing them anyway..The cards are brighter and more distinguishable than they are showing up here.
I make cards for family, friends, and myself.  I use my barn photos and Snapfish.  I used to have Cards by Beth on the back but I now put Revskid's Cards (I'm a Reverend's or Rev's kid).  The scene on  the back is always one of two photos I have of what used to be my husband's mom's family farm. It is now owned outside the Butler family.
I hope to expand on this endeavor when I retire even to printing my own.
 I also used to make cards with scrapbook material, but I don't have the time for that.  That is also something I want to take up when I retire.

Corner View:Love in My Corner

We've been dog sitting my son's dog Smooch.  She is the black lab in the picture.  She is 15 years old.
I took this picture this morning--they have never been all together like this.  Smooch with our dog Ginger, then Mike with Scruffy and George.

Corner View: Poem

 This first one is from Ted Kooser.

This next one is a blast from my past: Rod McKuen whose poetry I loved in my teens and twenties.

The third book is a poetry of a soldier serving in Iraq.  I ended up not putting any of it in here.
