Happy New Year!

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’

Morning Bun in the Afternoon

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…

Maude

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…

French Soap Label

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…

Tick, Tick, Tick

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…

Gorillapod

WS got me a gorillapod for Christmas.  I’m so happy!  It’s very portable, easy to use and those legs are just as good as Gumby :-).  (For those of you not into photography, it’s a tripod for my cameras).  It twists and turns and can bend into just about any way I need it to….

Christmas Day

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…

Merry & Bright

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…

Candlestick

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…

A Cup of Joy

Sometimes joy comes in the form of a hot cup of coffee and a few minutes of alone time during a hectic holiday season.  Namaste’

Winter Solstice Baby – Happy Birthday!

Besides being the winter solstice (shortest day of the year and a special alignment this year of all the planets in our solar system), this day is even more special to me because it’s my daughter’s birthday.  So I want to take this opportunity to honor her.  She’s my baby, my youngest, who turns 41…

Mele Kalikimaka

Several years ago we were in Maui for Christmas and it was just fantastic! Loved the beaches, the water, the balmy breezes, the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep at night and shopping.  But the coolest thing was that I learned how to say Merry Christmas the way the islanders do … so…
