Christmas Night

The snow in Atlanta falls sometimes on the planta's...

Silliness aside, it was odd to see the snow...I thought I left it behind...

Home Again, Home Again

Flew home yesterday.  Imagine my pleasure at seeing another "sundog" from the 'plane.  It is dfficult to tell in the photo, but it had the makings of a triple....clouds from above often have an alien kind of look, don't you think?  Good to be home...and I have a memory card full of photos :)

Christmas Past

Over the years I amassed quite a collection of Santa Bears.  They became an integral part of my decorating...when I was still decorating. This was taken in the early '90's.

Deja Vu

I have been busy the last several evenings...I need to get all the wrapping done so it can be mailed south.  I have a similar picture at the beginning of this blog.  The next night I broke my ankle slipping on ice and spent that Christmas in a rehab nursing home and the next 3 months home waitng for it to heal.  This year shall be different.

The green splotchy areas are disguising certain items.  After all, one never knows who might be looking. 

PS:  Not all the consequences of that fall were bad...Viv.."meeting" you was one of the best  :)

Snow Angel

The day I had my head shaved in readiness of chemo hair loss, I was given this angel.  Since that day just over nine years ago, she sits on my desk in front of my computer and is a constant reminder of all my blessings.

Oh Noooo!

Where the heck did I store the snow / ice scraper for the car?

Christmas Scenes

Remember when I went to Frankenmuth in July?  And I told you I took a bunch of  Christmas themed pictures?  Yup...been saving them.  Never let it be said that I am predictable...(which, of course, I really am).

Perhaps you have noticed I post a lot of this type of photo.  I have always been fascinated by nature's paintings.  I have been known to pull over to the side of the road just to sit in awe of a great rainbow or a great sunset...Sometimes to appreciate the "simple" things is to appreciate the greatest gifts.
