December Photo Project: Green Fudge

This fudge recipe calls for white chocolate wafers.
There were no white white chocolate wafers.
Only green white chocolate.
Hence the color.

December Photo Project: Another First

I mentioned we have lights on our porch for the first time in many years, but that's not the only first this Christmas. :) For the first time in ten years...
Oh, what's that on the top of the car?

That's right. A real, live, full, wonderful, scented, prickly Christmas tree.

Note: I was at school and at work all day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so the images from those days are extras from others! (immacheater.)

December Photo Project: I Can't Decide

I feel that titles are important. They mean much to me.
Blog titles, that is.
So this evening, I sat at my computer and said to myself:

"What shall the title of today's post be?...


"'Snow On The Ground'?...
 

"or 'I Whip My Hair Back And Forth'?"
 I couldn't decide.

December Photo Project: Late Again This Year

December Photo Project
Yes, I am starting on the fourth for the second year in a row.
But to make up for it? Look at me, gettin' all fancy with our lil' train. He looks like he's movin'! (sort of) WHOOO WOOO.
And this one? This is because I just couldn't resist the cute little red bokeh at the left in the foreground.


Be sure to click the button up top to check out the other December Photo Project participants (who probably weren't scrambling for a picture late in the day)! :)

A Look Back At Summer

We had a lovely summer garden this year.



We had little red silk hats...




...on the sweet ears of red corn...



...and little visitors...



...and little buds and blossoms...



...and garden-fresh salads...



...and much basil...



...and enough pumpkins (22, to be exact!) to make pumpkin pies the whole month of November and still stock the freezer with extra pumpkin. :)

A Little Mistake

Somewhere in the world...there's some kid who just got a new job at Hanes.

I didn't notice this when I received (Christmas present from my mom!) the socks, but it became quite apparent when I put them on.

"Good Garbage" :)

Lookee what we got garbage pickin' this summer! ;) It now resides in Lizzy's room, and, with a new ribbon, it types a lot nicer than it did in that first picture!
She feels like Kit Kittredge, American Girl.
It inspires her to walk down by the railroad tracks and take pictures.
In black and white.

What a good girl! :)

My Cat: She's Cuter Than Sliced Bread.

I think my cat gets cuter and cuter and cuter every day.
Therefore, I feel the need to take pictures of her every day.
And sometimes I get lucky.
Very lucky. :)

In Loving Memory...

 ...of Gretchen...
 ...who hated baths...
 ...and whose black hair on her head had little brown roots...
 ...who let the cat sleep in her kennel...
...to sleep in her new favorite spot...
...under the table...
...who had the sweetest face...
...who could balance treats on her nose...
...who loved the snow...
...very...
...much...
...who loved to lay in the sunshine...
...who was loved by all...
...and will be missed by many.

I thank God for all the wonderful memories we have of her life.
