Back to my coffee.....

 Friday I spent the day outside with Phil and the kids
getting everything put away and buttoned up for snow
which they keep predicting yet it has not come, yeah!
 as you can see I didn't prep the house for this picture
but I loved the glow from the fire so I thought I'd share.
I digress
so Friday night Mimi and I got invited to a party/sleepover
in Homer and I was a little tired but Mimi was so excited as was my friend and her
daughter, I agreed.
well I woke up the next morning with the flu
and everything else that comes with it.
I was so embarrassed!

 So after laying in bed all day/bored
I thought I would share some photos from one of my favorite magazines 
that they cancelled a few years back.
 love this room
 How peaceful would this be to live near the river
except during flood season.
 these images to get me in the mind set for winter.
 silent night
especially love this interior

well I'm back to enjoying my coffee this morning
among the living.

without sounding to sappy
I wanted to thank all of you for your lovely comments
and kind words, they mean so much and are deeply treasured!
Happy week to you all!


  1. Sorry you were not feeling well. Isn't it a shame that they stopped publishing so many lovely magazines? (but continue to publish so many icky ones.)
    You asked about uses for Pineapple Sage. Go here:

  2. Hope you feel better soon, hope the snow stays away for a bit longer.

  3. Hi Heidi,

    Such a shame your weekend ended in you getting the flu. I am glad to hear you are feeling better, so that you won't miss the Halloween fun. I hope Cory and Mimi will have a great time!

  8. Hasn't the year flown? I like that last interior too.

    I hope you're feeling better. The flu's awful.

    Your house is always gorgeous ... no need for styling!

  9. That picture of your place is so cosy & inviting! Our computer has been on the go slow this last week, so I haven't been around much, looks like you've been busy, glad you had a nice trip away catching up with your friend, and I hope you are feeling very much better & that you've seen the last of the flu for this year! Enjoy your coffee, I was busting for my coffee this morning that I pick up at the same place almost everyday, yet today they put sugar in it, BLAGH! Looks like I'll have to make myself a dull old instant! xx

  10. your home looks so cozy. i hope you're feeling better soon. i think everyone can sympathize, we've all 'been there'.

    wishing you a wonderful week with plenty of sunshine.

  11. Oh my gosh Heidi, I hope your feeling better!!! The fireplace looks so cozy and warm. Like you I like to look through my old magazines and day dream away!!!!
    Have a great week....a healthy week with no more flu symptoms!!!!!
    Chris :o)

  12. Your house looks so nice and cozy :) Hope you feel better soon, I've been knocked sideways by bronchitis these past couple of weeks, must be that change of season thing, eh?

  13. I will say this... There is nothing more beautiful than living along a river. We did.... Then we were ravaged by a flood!! This was in 1979 & we were flooded well into the 1st floor with all the most smelly & toxic stuff you could imagine.
    We repaired... waited... sold & moved to the mountains... no flooding here & if there is then the whole world is in deep trouble!! LOL!!

  14. SNOW!!! you lucky thing...I hope you’re feeling a bit better now!

  15. Oh, Heidi! I'm sorry you were sick! You poor thing.
    I'm glad you're drinking coffee again (always a good sign).
    Your living room always looks so cozy and inviting!
    Talk soon, Moto

  16. Hej Heidi, It looks so cosy in your house.
    I hope your feeling better.
    Lieve groet

  17. So sorry to hear you had the flu - hope you're feeling better now Heidi.
    Your home looks so warm and cosy, and I prefer to see real rooms as they are!
    The magazine pics are lovely and great for ideas - what a shame they stopped that one.
    Keep warm!

  18. Oh, that's awful when you're somewhere else and you get sick. I hope you're much better by now. I hate to see the magazines disappearing, they're one of my vices, now I can't do it much. Diane

  19. I just love your light blue can with white dots...
