Almost Ready! I've amazed myself with what I've accomplished this past week! Some final wrapping today (after sleeping quite late, my exhausted mind/body is saying THANK YOU) and then I can relax. I'm making a vow to myself right now-- next year I am not going to put myself in this stressful situation. Shop early! Wrap Early! Enjoy the weeks leading up to the holiday, instead of being overwhelmed.

Peace, health and Joy to all.

Shopping Frenzy

Someone slap me for not getting started on Christmas sooner! argh- life is not cooperating lately! Guess the tree is going to have a very short half life at our house this year...... since it's not even up yet. Bad me. I'm doing some very harried online shopping due to current life circumstances and my obsessive dislike of crowds and traffic. Hey the shipping charges equate a tank of gas so I guess it's all the same in the end.

Cold Sunset

A Crisp Clear Beautiful Day leads to a gorgeous sunset

This is about 1/2 mile from my house or 10-15 min walk

At the bottom of the hill. The sky was incredible looking.

Cool clouds! It was incredibly beautiful, and about 46 degrees.

*inspired by and for Janice, my ocean loving buddy who lives far to far away.

Danged Tree is still on top of the neighbors house! When is the tree service going to get here???? What do you want to bet they're simply going to show up, unannounced?

Ok, so I mentioned it was stormy.... here's my
driveway this morning. Not so bad-- typical
after a storm here.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered this:

Thankfully no one lives in the house next door,
and even more thankfully this tree in my side yard
did not fall on MY house during the night!
Now that's quite some adrenaline rush first thing in the morning!


Major Wind Storm since yesterday and overnight! Not sure how much rain there was. My guess it'll look like driving through a tornado once I venture out. Thankfully, no loss of power! Nothing worse than waking to no power. All us girlie types need to shower and use our electrical appliances. One extremely tardy young lady has her's going full blast at the moment. Will we be in the car in 5 mins as expected? Doubt it....

Going to check out the ocean later. Supposed to some major waves. Stay tuned.....
