Sunny New Year's Weekend




Sunny New Year's Weekend-
We had a gorgeous weekend here! It was 43 Saturday, so Dave took down the outside lights and decorations. We looked up and there was Posey, neighbor's kitty, up on the roof! Miss curiosity-


We think she was sunning herself!




The snow got slushy, but was still pretty-


Packed up the holiday goodies-


We had a family dinner here last night and River loved his new book we gave him, he said  "ooo"! I made a hearty pasta sauce with our frozen, home-grown organic tomatoes, with Italian sausage on top of rotini pasta, salad, bread,and a blackberry/raspberry pie (store bought) rounded out the menu. We all had a great time!


Stopped at Lowe's found some 60% off holiday mini cloches, $6.00 for 2, perfect for my kitchen window- 


We dropped off some donations to a thrift store of holiday decor, since I keep downsizing every year. I did score a Duplo truck for River to play with here and a stocking holder for one the grand kids for next year. I need one more then we're set. We packed up the Christmas things, leaving out the winter decor for a while. Tomorrow I'll fill in the gaps with the normal decor. We'll start the New Year with a wintry mix! Happy New Year to you and yours!!!

Yes Dicky there are lots of great deals out there but I give away and donate more than I'm buying so hopefully it all comes out even

Wish I had my holiday decorations put away and the January ones up but because of the upheaval at our house just now, the tree and sparkly lights may be twinkling for a while yet! We'll just have an elongated holiday season . . . and be grateful for it.

Sending New Year wishes for the best of everything to you and yours!
