In January, in our neck of the woods (Ohio), we barely see sunshine. This year (2012) we have had sunny days since the 1st of the year. Nice temperatures. Sweater, no jacket kind of warm. This was a sunset the other night. I quickly took the picture. If I had gone outside I am sure it would have changed and I wouldn't have gotten this color. I couldn't believe the beauty of this sunset.
We are back to full swing here. Here is O and A doing what they do best........play.
On Sunday we had tree trimmers working. They got the trees and branches off of our neighbor's fence. The neighbor thanked us..........sure hope he appreciated our swift actions.
I thought you could all use a little laughter. So here goes......
When I was in Colorado my daughter and granddaughter went to a hair salon. My granddaughter asked the receptionist if old people could have tinsel in their hair. She said of course. So Grammy got some silver tinsel in her hair. Dancing girl got a feather (feddar) and her Mama got a wee bit f tinsel. Well mine just kinda stood out. I didn't blend in. I had three people over the course of 10 days of having it in tell me I had tinsel in my hair. I think they thought it came from a Christmas tree and I didn't know I had it. Well, it is gone now. Dancing Girl's feddar stuck straight out the next day. It looked so funny bt so fitting for her.
Okay Dancing Girl gave Grammy and Grampy a tattoo. Those darn things had to be scrubbed off as they weren't budging.
Have you heard of miss matched socks. Well they are right up my alley and DG's as well. She got me a pair (that is 3) for Christmas. When I went through security of course I had to take my shoes off. My socks were black, one with colorful polka dots and the other one stars with the same colors. You know how those security people are so serious. Well as I was approaching the scanner the security guy told me I had my socks on the wrong feet. He said they needed to be on his feet. I loved to see that he had a sense of humor.
I finally went to the grocery. Hubby had for a few things but I was putting it off. So I went and carried all the stuff in and up the stairs (bi-levels are so wonderful). I went to step over the groceries and caught my toe in one of the plastic bags and went flying into the wall. Almost smacked my head. I am fine but I am sure this was a site. Tanner was here and he got very quiet.
Okay a little more serious... Pogonip of Meadowsweet Cottage left a comment and said I should use "accomplish" as my word for the year. Perfect.....so "accomplish" it is. I went for paint chips yesterday. The one I liked and my Hubby (after a little coaxing) was Peanut Butter. The funny thing was I picked the chip and then read the name. A friend of mine had used the very same color in her home and I loved it. I wasn't looking for that color though when I saw the chip. So back for the paint today. When will I get to it, we will see.
O and A are only coming two days a week now. So I get a phone call yesterday for two more darlings to come on the days that I had just feed up. Oh my, I don't say no well so said okay. They will go to school in the afternoons just like O and A do.
Our sun has gone away and today we are getting rain and later snow. I think we all knew it was just a matter of time. Of course I love the snow but not slippery roads.
So thanks for those beautiful sunshiney days to kick start our new year. Now off to "accomplish."
