And if a darling daughter calls offering assistance, one does not say, "No thanks, Dear, I've got this."
The best thing about snow is that it is all very pretty for a while.
Back on Christmas Day, Laurel (my daughter) opened a cupboard and I heard her exclaim, "I could
not handle that!" I think I saw her wave her hands around in a distinct circle.
What?! What in the world was she talking about?
Only three things fell on her feet. I don't think that she had much reason to complain.
If she thought that was bad, what would she think of what was behind this door?
↑I know what this is soaking in the bucket. I found it in the closet in the dining room. One of you also knows what it is and how I got it. My memory is failing and so, while I am pretty sure that one of you sent it to me as a gift, which one eludes me. For anyone else, hang in there, I'll share what "it" is another time.
Now I know who sent me this Amaryllis. My cousin Jill did. She wondered how many others would mail me one after my confession that I had never had one on a recent Hodge Podge Wednesday. The sad thing about this plant is that it took a detour before arriving here "at the edge of the world" as Jill calls it. It got a little frostbit and I am just hoping that it will make it. By the way, this is my one and only Amaryllis. No need to change that, I hasten to add. ☺This one requires my full attention.
What else? I know that there is more. Oh yes! Last week, my son Adam and his family came out to visit my father while I was there visiting him for the day. They brought lunch and we had a fun couple of hours chatting. Then I thought to get some pictures of the men in the family.
~Adam Sam Jakob Dad~
My father is quite capable of being a character and a ham and has never taken a good photo in his life because he's too busy goofing off. I certainly hope that both he AND Jakob are goofing off in this one. Otherwise, I'm going to worry about both of them.
↑One of my favorite pictures of the day, out of focus and all.
Yes, there's more...
Christmas lights still shining, inside and out...
Potpourri down to one citrus fruit requiring fake replacement fruit. Tree still glowing...
Gingerbread house still on display...
