Happy Winter


I'm ready to be Gayle's assistant with this arty shot!

And this was under the tree from Marion's Mimi.....

Here is evidence of a happy melding of cultures.
Potato pancakes and our menorah with Christmas chocolates in the background.

Peace and joy to everyone, no matter what you celebrate.
Wishing a wonderful 2009 for all.

Miss M and I made these on Thursday night.
A wonderful find via Eurolush (totally cool blog) to Domesticali (also cool blog) for the idea and directions. (leave me a note if the links don't work--the weather seems to be making the internets unhappy right about now and you really should visit those blogs if you haven't.)

Today, the redhead and I rescued this from the backyard. That's a ring of ice around the base. It's thawing in the garage now.

Here's what the wreaths look like at night.

More Christmas preparations are ongoing. Nana's meat grinder was unearthed in a box today--now we can grind pecans properly for little nut balls! Yay!

It's snowing again and very windy. With any luck, I'll be unable to get to work for a few days this coming week.....

Again, I quote Nilsson...

"Here is why I did not go to work today..."

(Go here for a great listen, lyrics, and a shot of Nilsson and John Lennon playing pool.)
