Here are the last three weeks of 2013 .... they were pretty good weeks.
A cold, still, beautiful sunrise and a somewhat precarious walk to work
To paraphrase Richard Brautigan ... yesterday's snow is today's mud.
I fell down on the ice and was not feeling too good about my walk home that day.
One needs to take in all of the Christmas love, light and gaudiness while they can.
I was scrabbling to finish up all of the crafting I needed for a fair the next day while trying to stay warm under a blanket when these to love-bugs decided I needed a double cuddle... they were right.
This is such a terrible picture but was such a tasty beer.
Downtown Tulsa at night! I had a booth in the Indie Emporium craft market Friday and Saturday and all of downtown was lit up and lively as we were packing up the car. I had a very good weekend. And Tulsa is doing a great job of revitalizing their downtown.
Home. Burritos. Things I like.
(Happy Birthday, Bree. You are the best sister for me)
A gigantic moon rising.
There is nothing like a box.
There is nothing like burrowing under the covers
Swapped a haircut for fancy, holiday nails. I wish I could live only on the barter system.
A storm was rapidly approaching.
I have gone to two 8 year olds roller skating birthday parties this year and it made me realize there should be an adult skate time at every roller rink. I have no desire to do Roller Derby but I would happily pay to skate for a couple of hours every week.
The ice storm moved in Friday night... NONE of it had thawed even two days later. Ice is beautiful but so damaging. Luckily our trees have bounced back better than I expected.
These little poached pears are by far the fanciest desert I have ever made! I am going to have to step up my game next year for the Lauren and Jerod private Christmas (Jerod cooks dinner, I fix desert, we open presents...I love it)
My three sweet "Gerfen" nieces waiting patiently to open presents. The adults were taking too long finishing up dinner.
I hope everyone's day was filled with warmth and cheer.
If you look closely you can see me reflected in the silver ball... that was an accident.
Putting the Christmas tree away is so much less fun than the initial decorating.
This sweet friend came over to meet us for the first time.
There was some serious lego-ing happening.
I was very glad to be at my parents house having a late Christmas.
These guys crack me up.
There was also some serious pretty pony playing going on.
She cracks me up too.
A great, little hike with my sister, her kids, and my Mom (shadow not pictured)
Love and Peace to all in the new year.
