  1. So true. I had to go to Tractor Supply yesterday for some fence staples and it was a mad house. So I'm taking your advice and staying out of town until after Christmas.

  6. I was immersed in crowds yesterday but today plan to stay home and bake. Much preferred!

    I hope you have a relaxing week as well.

    I ordered a new "bridge" camera that arrives tomorrow that I can't wait to play with and learn to use. It's bigger than my pocket point and shoot but smaller than my Nikon, which is so big I never bring it anywhere. I'm hoping the new Panasonic FZ35 will be small enough to go on my travels and walks so that I have it when I need it. Time will tell!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  10. I love that little house. You must share the story behind it one day. It looks old, like it came from the attic of a dear relative. Merry Christmas, Chick!

  18. Great advice (which we all promptly forget !).

    Love these shots, especially the first one !

  19. Good advice. I plan to go to doctor this morning and then stay at home until next year. Sounds rather dramatic but it is true.

    Yes, those are two stone carvings I did in black slate. I used to do a lot of this kind of thing after meeting David Kindersley who was visiting from England. He is a master at this sort of thing. I met him at a library in New England where he had an exhibition at the same time I had one there. Sorry to say that he passed away in 1995.

  29. Adorable! I wish it were true that I was taking it slow and enjoying. I think I am at he point where it becomes downright stressful (sigh). With that said, Christmas Eve I will be saying to myself that it was all worth it.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  32. This is so cute, it is yours? What a great post. I was out shopping and not enjoying the crowds when I laughed comparing how it used to be in Phoenix compared to here. Then I just smiled and let a woman cut in front of me.
