Hey! It's December.


Happy December 1st! Appropriately, we woke up to snow this morning, though I don't think it will last - there's rain in the forecast for the next couple of days. This is our first real snow of the year, so I guess we're pretty fortunate. We saw flakes in the air a few times before this. On Wednesday we woke up to a light frosting of snow, enough to make the road slick, but it was pouring down rain by the afternoon. I'm sure there's more to come though.

So. It's  been a  while. I have written numerous blog posts in my head, but somehow I never got around to actually typing anything. That sums up a lot of things lately; I just don't get around to it, can't be bothered, don't feel like it, don't have time...

Everything is fine. I'm fine. Husband is fine. Fabulous Felines are fine. We're all good. I'm just lacking in...something lately. Focus? Motivation? I don't know. I have some vacation coming up, maybe that is all I need.

In the mean time, let's have some fun with photos...

Ahh....October...Out comes the Autumn footwear...Hello you beautiful shoes!

A peck of pickled peppers? Okay not quite, but I did pickle them.

Oktoberfest anyone? FYI, Husband and I split that can of beer. I do not need to drink a full can when the can is the size of my head.

November. We started to get some chilly weather. Finally got around to digging up my carrots. I was a little afraid I would not get to them before the ground froze.

Had to stop filling the bird feeders because of raccoons. They are the cutest little critters, but they can climb the  fence and I was afraid  of them getting in and tangling with the cats. We can keep seed in the globe feeder though, so we still see chickadees.

Shoe sale! Could not pass these up. You understand.

We got a new bed. The old one was 15+ years old. It was time. And a new duvet. Fabulous Felines approve.

When I pruned my forsythia bush,  there were a few blossoms...In November...So I brought a few branches in, and put them in a vase; now we have forsythia in bloom in our kitchen.

Christmas cactus in bloom. So cheery!

So how are you guys? Everything good?

Forsythia in November, yay!
I think you need a vacation. The five days I took last month was Not Enough.
The blue buttoned ankle boots? Yum!

LOVE your fabulous photos, and if you've got a vacation coming, that's probably all you need for a little re-set, motivation wise.

And yay for cans of beer the size of heads! That way you can say, in all honesty, "I only had half a beer".

I LOVE those new shoes!!
And the can of beer made me laugh.
As did your "snow". We have just suffered through another major snowstorm.... I think I need a vacation, too!

I LOVE all your shoes! Gorgeous! I can't get over all that snow, it never snows here so it is amazing to see so much snow! :)
