THIS IS IT! WOW! The end of my 366 challenge. Please read the photo to know how I feel about all of you, my faithful readers. (Click photo to enlarge). I’ll see you on the other side in a bright and shiny new year. I’m taking New Year’s Day off for sure 🙂 Namaste’
Cold and overcast day so I decided to go with WS over to the local barista and have some coffee and a snack this afternoon. This morning bun caught my eye and it sure tasted good; I ate the whole thing. So what if it was 2:30 in the afternoon!
We then came home and took down some Christmas decorations. Kind of a lazy day. I liked it. Hope yours was really good as well. Namaste’
Today I delivered all of the “artsy” photo cards I made for my client of those 17 horses … well actually it was 16. Somehow I forgot Maude, so I photographed her today while I was there. She’s such a sweet and gentle horse and is for sale. If you know someone looking for a chestnut with soulful eyes, she’s your gal. Namaste’
Yesterday was such a surprise with two gifts coming in the mail. The clock (yesterday’s post) from WS’s daughter and then the antique French soap label from my daughter. She even framed it for us in an antique frame. I promise not to polish it 🙂
We love both of our gifts, girls!!!! Namaste’ Only three days to go, people, until the end of my 366 project. But I’ll keep blogging 🙂
Well, here it is, folks. We’re on the downhill slope of 2012. Just a few days to go. We received a Christmas gift today from WS’s daughter in New Hampshire. And one from my daughter in California. But that will be a photo for tomorrow.
I’m afraid this image doesn’t do it justice – it’s simply a WOW! clock. (Click to enlarge the picture) … Swarovsky crystal elements and it plays one of 48 different songs on the hour. And yet it won’t do it once the lights in the room are out, so as not to wake us up during the night. Pretty clever, eh?
I finally finished the horses. I photographed 17 horses, all edited to be artsy, had prints made and then created 144 handmade cards out of the photos. I’ll post some of the photos in the new year.
2013 is almost here! Namaste’
What we thought would be kind of a sad day turned out very well. We were hoping to have my stepdad out of the skilled nursing home at least for Christmas Day, but that turned out to not be the case. Instead, we took all the presents and went to where he is. His daughter and her husband were there from the midwest and we all had a great time. Stepdad was happy that we were all there. Everyone ate lunch together at the nursing home. I guess if I had to be in one of those places, I would sure want my loved ones around me. I hope he’ll remember at least some of the moments we all shared today.
Here’s a shot of me and WS. Obviously I didn’t take this picture, so I’m breaking the rules of the photo-a-day project, but hey, I’ve broken lots of rules before – LOL!
Hope your Christmas Day was spectacular in every way. Namaste’
Well, dear ones, it’s almost that magical day. Here it is Christmas Eve in southern Arizona. The temperature is 50 degrees, which suits me just fine. There are lots of people trying to make it home for Christmas today and I wish them Godspeed on their journeys.
Let the love, peace and joy of this night increase the light in your lives today and always, wherever you are. Merry Christmas, have fun, and spread the joy! Namaste’
Well, today was the day when we get the house together to prepare for Christmas guests. Will Santa be one of them? I expect he will.
While walking by the dining room table I noticed the sunlight streaming through one of the candlesticks and lighting it up. It’s hard to see the red candle because there’s so much light. I just love it. I’m using the palm tree candlesticks for Christmas dinner. Maybe it’s a subliminal thing that I’d like to be at the beach with palm trees swaying and an umbrella drink in my hand. LOL. Namaste’
