Tallulah-Palooza Friday

"And the children  canines were nestled, all snug in their my bed..."

Please note her floofy tailio tucked up for extra warmth. Also? Her white eyebrows are starting to remind me a wee bit of Andy a good way, of course!

Brown Paper Packages, Tied Up with String...

...these are a few of my favorite things.

You know, sometimes the wrapping is more fun than the present...
She dragged this big wad of paper from one room into the other...she then proceeded to tear off teeny little bits of it, one teeny little bit at a time. Fun!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

 "Baby, It's Cold Outside." (It really is quite chilly for SoCal, here in our uninsulated houses.)
Our model seems to either be demonstrating the Blue Steel or b) giving me the patented Tallulah Mae stink-eye (she really does hate to have articles of clothing put on her..she tolerates it because she loves me!).

After all the hustle and bustle today--flying to dance class only to find I'm the only one who showed up so class was cancelled; a Christmas gift stop; the post office (again--Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, today)--THIS delightful beer is much appreciated. Mmmmmmm...

The sky--it never ceases to amaze. Now all I need is a photo of a) the Milky Way; b) the Aurora Borealis.  (We tried to see it in the Yukon--sooo fun, and so cold--but it did not cooperate. But we'll see it one day!).

(If I do say so myself! I soooo love to wrap packages, and I have a hoard supply of terribly cute things to put on top of them.)

{Sniff....ahhhhh....} This smells heavenly,and it is quite sweet, no? It's a blossom on my new semi-dwarf Meyer lemon tree). I can't wait for lemons!

A Nutty Random Heart Poem

 A fire.
 Cheese, grapes, wine, and a random heart...
The duck is keeping an eye on us.

The End.

Winter Comforts

 Yesterday, on the first really wintry-feeling day...
 I had a baked potato for lunch (I adore them...I want one for my last meal);
 Baked cookies;
And had some tea!


What do YOU do on a wintry day?

Winter Whites (and Pink)

Love December roses...and the place in which I live that allows me to grow them!
