Tootjsie And I Had A Fabulous Christmas!

December 26, 2011

It's a lovely sunny morning so far, with a little breeze picking up.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day.  Tootsie and I certainly did.  We even had a few snow flakes floating around to give the illusion of a white Christmas. 

When I got home from work yesterday morning, I took a couple photos of my rose, then I clipped both the rose and the bud and brought them inside.  They were frozen, but still beautiful.  I placed them on a paper towel and took another photo.  I think I will press them in a book.  (a blog book!)  So, for posterity, here's the final photo of my Christmas rose.

Kyra, that chocolate is delicious!  I'm nibbling on a piece of it right now.  Later today, I will take photos of all the wonderful things under our tree and post them tomorrow.  This morning, I have for you a photo of the Christmas morning sky at daybreak,

and another of the sky this morning on my way home from work.  Are they not beautiful?

The Mrs always gets beautiful floral arrangements from friends and family.  I thought this one is especially beautiful. 

My new book "Oogy" is already making the rounds between my children and a couple of the grandchildren.  Dee Dee has picked it up for her and Jasmine to read.  Now I will concentrate on my discs for my camera and Photoshop.   Up to now, I haven't had a lot of time to spend on these.  Now that the rush is over, it's my time for learning.

Today's special value on the shopping channel is a smart phone with unlimited talk, web and data.  It comes with a built in GPS and two months of free service and requires no contract.  I think I will try it.  They give you thirty days to try it and either keep it or send it back.  You just can't lose. 

Now I'm going outside to spread some peanuts around for the squirrels and any birds that might like them.   They need the food to keep warm.  That's all the news for this morning.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Edna, it sounds like it was a lovely Christmas! I love those gorgeous sky photos!

We had mostly clouds and feisty wind yesterday, but Rina and I spent the day in our jammas being all comfy and watching the kitty chase-games until it was time to get Christmas dinner ready for when David got home form work.

It was a wonderful Holiday for us all!

Hugs, Nani

What a wonderful idea to dry your special rose!
The pictures of the sky are lovely!
We already tried out one of your packages of coffee, and tasted great.
Now on to "normal business"again, till New Years Eve.
Have a great day
