Miss Madee's fancy shoes

Well back to work tomorrow. New year countdown begins.
I'm working on Lenas fingerless gloves. One down one to go.

Getting ready for the New Year

Out with the old and in with the new. Been there done that ready for a fresh start. It's been a busy year with lots of changes for everybody. New babies, new pups, and even a few new recipes. Hope you all had a merry Christmas. I'm off to make up a resolution or two.
Love you

One of "the guys"

This is one of the "bachelors" in the finch cage here at Perdueville. He hangs out with "Arrow" while "Amelia" and "Pretty boy" make a cozy couple. There seems to be a competition to see who can build the best nest. The boys try real hard. I think they are trying to impress Amelia. Alas I think she's quite happy with Pretty boy.
Okay enough rambling about birds.
Merry Christmas Eve everybody.
Stay safe, happy, and watchout for each other.

A Project for a photography forum

Okay, so I had to come with a photo that would be Holiday"ish" and represent me a little bit. I took the photo of the star out on our patio and put it into photoshop, added the greeting, and then took the photo. Ahh too much fun. Not getting much else done though. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
Be well... and laugh much.

Christmas is coming... OH NO!!!

It's Wednesday the 16th... that means that Christmas is almost upon us. To tell you the truth I''ve been a little preoccupied with weather, layoff, Family health stuff and who knows what else. Today I think I shall begin to at least think about what I'm doing regarding this Holiday season. Maybe I'm just getting older. Little one's no longer dance around me chanting their "wants" list.
So here we go! Fresh start and all. (sound of clinking eggnog cups raised high)
Love you guys. Stay warm, toasty and dry.

Happy Birthday Sissie!!!!

Happy Birthday Les... Love you,

Love these vintage trailers

Good morning...
Let's try this again. I am going to work today, hopefully. I've enjoyed the time off but I'm getting a little to comfortable staying at home. This picture is of some of the "fly girl's" vintage trailers. They are a bunch of gals really into flyfishing and they all tow around customized old trailers. Love it. There are more like these at
What do you say girl's? Looks like fun. I'm gonna keep my eye out for an oldie to restore.

After the Crash

It's Monday morning and there is just enough snow on the ground to keep me from working. Yesterday my laptop decided to bluescreen me and crash. I was able to save some stuff while in safe mode but had to completely reboot to get everything up and going. I am diligently re-installing the most important programs all of which seem to take a very long time. I had to search my stash to find a photo to put up... will work on finding something a little more seasonal. Back on track foodwise and soing really well although it's only 9:30 in the morning. A nice piece of sprouted grain bread (thanks Ferol), an egg and a small bowl of raisen bran (no sugar). The finches are singing in the background and the "spouse" is settling in to a good book.
My short term goals for today:
Set up laptop
Organize photo workflow
Eat healthy good for me food
Prepare myself for returning to work tommorrow (off a week weather related)
Take care and be inspiring
