Oh, I have been away for awhile, haven’t I? That tragedy in CT really broke my heart and I just didn’t have much to say. I’ve been trying to get into the Christmas spirit, and have also been a little busy but managed to capture a few photos along the way.
The weather has been unseasonably warm lately and until mid-morning today, we’ve had some incredible fog. I could have gotten some wonderful photos but something was always coming up, or I was rushing out and not taking the camera, so I think I pretty much missed out on that great fog.
We’ll have more, I’m sure.
Photos of Miss Blackie chilling out here in the warm weather.
She’s such a softie.
I also made cookies.
Orange-iced cranberry cookies – my specialty. They are such a treat for the holidays.
I made 7 dozen.
Then I wrapped them by dozens in individual boxes, and took them to a cookie exchange on Sunday. Fun!
I found another new tea I love, too. Bought it here:
The mug is Starbucks and is several years old. It’s been my favorite since the day I bought it.
Made this awesome dish on Saturday night. It was so yummy.
I used penne rather than ziti because that’s what I had in the house.
I’m going to call this Approach to Philadelphia because that’s where that airliner is heading. What? You can’t see the plane?
I’m still taking macro shots of my holiday things.
I got the little frame ornament at Pottery Barn years ago. In it is one of my favorite pictures taken of my husband with our then-new puppy (George) back in August 2007.
Found a new acorn ornament over the weekend.
Life doesn’t feel so bad right now.
Hope all is well with you ~
